  • cups rice (heat it up if using leftover rice)
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon garlic salt
  • 2 cups shredded or chopped chicken
  • 1 can (15 oz) black beans drained & rinsed
  • ¼ cup chopped green onion
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 2 cups shredded cheese
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 8 burrito-sized large tortillas


  • In a large bowl stir the rice, chili powder, cumin and garlic salt until combined.  Add in the chicken, black beans, green onions, cilantro, and lime juice. Stir together to combine. 
  • Sprinkle some cheese over a tortilla, leaving ½-inch border around edges, then dollop about 3-4 dots of sour cream over the cheese.
  • Add some chicken/rice mixture (about ⅓ cup) and arrange down the center of the tortilla.
  • Fold up burrito style (fold in sides and then roll up from the bottom) or just fold into a wrap style. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
  • Spray both sides of each burrito with cooking spray and place in a skillet pan over medium-high heat. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side or until desired crispiness.
  • Serve with salsa, sour cream, and guacamole!


Depending on how much you stuff the burritos, you will get between 6-8 burritos. I put ⅓ cup of the burrito filling onto each tortilla and get 8 burritos out of the recipe. 
Use any shredded cheese you want!
