Creamy Chicken Burritos

When you start with a selection of ready-to-go ingredients, burritos become a 20-minute recipe. Your microwave speeds heating time too.

Creamy Chicken Burritos
Yield: 6 burritos Prep 15 mins Cook 5 mins


  • 1 large package (10 ounces) Southwestern-flavored fully cooked chicken strips, cut into chunks
  • 1 package (8 ounces) shredded taco cheese
  • 1 can (14.75 ounces) cream-style corn
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 6 burrito-size flour tortillas
  • 1 can (16 ounces) refried beans
  • 1 jar (12 ounces) roasted red peppers, drained and patted dry
  • Sour cream and salsa, for garnish (optional)

Make It

1. In bowl, combine chicken, cheese, corn and chili powder.

2. Place 2 tortillas on work surface. Spread each with 1/3 cup beans. Place about sixth of roasted peppers down center of each. Top each with 3/4 cup chicken mixture, flattening slightly. Fold up tortillas, envelope fashion, enclosing filling. Transfer burritos, seam side down, to microwave-safe platter large enough so burritos don't touch. Repeat with remaining tortillas, beans, red pepper and filling. (If platter is not large enough, microwave in 2 batches.)

3. Microwave burritos on high for 5 minutes (internal temperature 150 degrees F). Serve with garnishes, if desired.
