Quick, Easy and Healthy Chicken and Avocado Burrito

These yummy burritos are really easy to make and can be prepared ahead of time – they can even be frozen for months to defrost whenever you want them! They’re a great, quick and different way to use leftover chicken, or you can make a big batch to have meals on hand for when you’re short on time.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups cooked shredded chicken, or grill or sear 2 chicken breasts for 10 minutes then slice into thin strips.
  • ½ cup reduced-fat Mexican cheese blend
  • 1 avocado diced
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro chopped
  • 4 large tortillas (you can try reduced fat, low carb or whatever kind you like!)
  • 1 tablespoon oil (we love avocado with this dish – but olive or whatever you have works!)

Preparation

  1. Mix the shredded chicken, cheese, cilantro, and the diced avocados.
  2. Lay a tortilla flat on a plate and add ¼ of the mixture, form a roll. Repeat the process for all four tortillas.
  3. Pour 1 tablespoon oil into a heated pan or griddle. Place all four tortillas on the pan and cook for 2 minutes on medium- high heat. Flip on the other side and cook for another minutes or until the the burritos are golden in color. Serve warm.
  4. Burritos can be frozen cooked or uncooked for up to 3 months!
