Chicken Burrito Recipe

I don’t know why I sometimes get hung up on the idea that you need to work hard and/or take a long time to make a healthy and tasty meal. 

Tonight I intended to buy fixings for burgers, but when I got to Costco I didn’t want to pay full price for high fat hamburger and ended up getting brats and a rotisserie chicken instead.  The kids were more interested in chicken than brats, so I took some chicken, put it on a tortilla with cheese, avocado, tomatoes, cilantro and a squeeze of lime juice. 


**You could make it vegetarian by leaving the chicken off and it would still be tasty.

The kids added sour cream and didn’t have most of the veggies that I had on mine, but it is still protein, dairy, veggies, and carbs.  Well balanced!  My mom always said that a colorful plate is a healthy plate.  I’d say this passes the mom test….

Healthy doesn’t have to be expensive… this cost $5.72 for family of 5:

  • Tortillas $.056  (paid $0.79 for pack of ten used 7) – On sale at Safeway for $1.79 and used Mission tortillas coupon $1/1 from 8/1 SS
  • Whole Rotisserie Chicken (fully cooked) $3.33 – $4.99 for whole chicken at Costco and used about 2/3 of it

  • Tomatoes $0 – from garden
  • Cilantro $0.33 – King Soopers last week
