Chicken Avocado Burritos

Chicken Avocado Burritos

I originally created this recipe to use as a freezer meal. I wanted a healthy alternative for lunches that could be made ahead of time and easily brought to work. But after my husband tried these Chicken Avocado Burritos they seldom make it to the freezer anymore, sometimes they don’t even make it onto a tortilla, and he will eat the filling by itself, before I have rolled any together. So this is absolutely a new favorite for us.

One Simple Filling, So Many Uses

My favorite thing about this recipe is how versatile it can be. You can wrap the filling in tortillas for a simple snack. You can bake them in the oven, covered in enchilada sauce and cheese for a delicious dinner. Or you can freeze them for a quick on the go meal.

These burritos could be made using leftover chicken, or turkey, but the best flavor comes from cooking the chicken on the skillet with seasoned oil. Mix together 1 tablespoon Oil, 1 teaspoon Chili Powder, ½ teaspoon Cumin, ¼ teaspoon Turmeric, ¼ teaspoon Salt, and ½ teaspoon Pepper. Pour this seasoned oil over 2 cups of cubed chicken in a skillet and combine. Cook until the chicken is white all the way through.

While the chicken is cooking, mix together ½ cup Sour Cream, 1 teaspoon Chili Powder, 1 teaspoon Cumin, and ½ teaspoon Pepper in a small bowl. In a large mixing bowl, combine 2 cups chopped Avocado, 1 cup Shredded Cheese, 2 tablespoons chopped Fresh Cilantro, the seasoned sour cream mixture, and the cooked chicken. Stir to combine.

Fill each tortilla with this chicken avocado mixture and roll them up. Place seam down in a baking dish and cover with enchilada sauce and shredded cheese. Bake at 325 degrees just until cheese is melted.
