Chicken Burritos for Two

I love a burrito.  Of all kinds.  Breakfast burrito, chicken burrito, veggie burrito.  All of them really get me jazzed.  I also love a good Saturday lunch.  So it makes sense that a chicken burrito for a Saturday lunch gets me jazzed to the max. 

I based the recipe off of one from LaaLoosh and was quite pleased with the results.  I was also quite pleased with the amount of good times and giggles one can have while photographing lunch.


Well this ones not very much fun, just wanted you to see what it looked like. 


Look, that burrito is coming out of the shadows, about to attack Brandon.


But he doesn't care, one of the James Bond movies is on.


Busted.


Yum. 

I hope you have as much fun with this burrito as I did.  Which might be kind of hard because as you can tell, I kind of had a blast. 

Chicken Burritos for Two
adapted from LaaLoosh

1 cup of cooked, shredded chicken
1/2 of a purple onion, sliced
chili powder and ground cumin
1/4 cup of water
1/4 cup of salsa
2 tbl uncooked brown rice
3/4 cup of black beans, drained and rinsed
2 tbl reduced fat shredded cheese
2 tbl light sour cream
2 tbl guacamole
2 low carb high fiber tortillas

Heat a small skillet and spray with cooking spray.  Add the onions and season with cumin and chili powder.  Once the onions are soft, add the cooked chicken and heat through.  Remove from the heat and set aside.

Bring the salsa and the water to a boil.  Reduce the heat.  Add the rice, cover, and cook on low for about five minutes.  Add the black beans and continue cooking until the liquid is absorbed. 

To assemble the burritos layer as follows on one tortilla:
tortilla
1/2 of chicken and onions
1/2 of rice mixture
1 tbl of cheese
1 tbl of guacamole
1 tbl of sour cream

Roll everything into a burrito style situation.  Wrap it in foil to at least kind of keep it contained.  Enjoy!
