  • Baked Chicken Burritos… an easy and delicious meal to make in less than 30 minutes. I love to top my burrito with tomatoes, avocado or guacamole, cilantro and olives.

    How is it already Thanksgiving tomorrow? I am SO so excited for the traditional Thanksgiving meal (pass over all the mashed potatoes and rolls please), but tonight we’re doing Mexican. We have Mexican food at least twice a week. It is our favorite! These baked chicken burritos are on the menu tonight, so I thought I’d share them with you. They are a mix between a burrito, taquito and chimichanga. However they aren’t deep friend, so they are a bit lighter and healthier which is always a plus.Baked Chicken Burritos... an easy and delicious meal to make in less than 30 minutes.

    Why I love these Baked Chicken Burritos…

    What I love about these is you can customize them with your favorite toppings. You can bake them with out without the sauce on top. You can always add extra cheese on top too and turn them into more of an enchilada. So easy and customizable to your own taste. I love to top my burrito with tomatoes, avocado or guacamole, cilantro and olives. A squeeze of fresh lime juice always add a nice twist too.

    Favorite toppings for burritos

    For the base I started out with flour tortillas. Then I mixed in chicken, onion, green chilies, cheese and my favorite Old El Paso red enchilada sauce.

    One the mixture is nice and hot, you’ll roll it up inside your tortillas. Then I like to brush olive oil on top and bake them until just crisp.
