    Good recipe. We often have this for a quick easy lunch. I just store the prepared chicken until we are ready for a burrito.

    This was delicious! We made the vegetarian version, and it was really tasty and so easy (which is why I gave it 5 stars). We'll definitely make it again.

    This was really easy and tasty. The seasonings are really well-absorbed by the chicken even though it doesn't have to simmer or marinate. I used multigrain tortillas and was afraid they might break apart but they didn't. As a nursing mom I'm not eating dairy so I left the cheese out on mine and it was still good, my husband had it with cheese and said it was excellent. Highly recommend this as a weekday dinner since it's so easy to pick up a rotisserie chicken on the way home...but it would work well with leftover chicken too.

    A definate keeper. Added regular onions...didn' have green onions. Just enough spice to give it some heat. Kept it simple and served them with baked chips and salsa. Yum

    LOVE this recipe. This recipe is SOOOO simple. I cannot understand what makes it so delicious. I use fully cooked butterball turkey. My boyfriend and I love these burritos!!!

    This was delicious - I used 6-in tortillas which was a mistake, but other than that, exactly as written, and it was yummy! The suggested salad, however, was AWFUL. Inedible.

    I usually cut the amout of hot ingredients the first time I try a new recipe, but I didn't this time and I'm glad I didn't. This was very tasty and had just enough heat for our taste. I can't think of any way to change it.

    These are really good. I made them for a second time this week, with leftover rotisserie chicken from the first time around. I was worried the chicken would lack flavor, since it doesn't spend a ton of time in the seasoning, but that was not the case. I think the cooking of the burrito really makes a difference - whenever I have made burritos in the past, I would just warm the tortillas and fill. We had them with homemade guacamole on top. I would definitely make them again and maybe serve with seasoned rice on the side, for a change .

    My husband and I both LOVED this recipe. It was super easy and delicious. I cooked the chicken myself ahead of time and just seasoned it with salt, pepper, and a little bit of cumin. These are even good reheated. However the citrus radish salad listed on this menu is awful and incredibly bland. I was so disappointed that they even chose to feature such a great dish with such a bad one.

    I made the vegetarian version of the recipe, just with beans. I used the cooking liquid and mixed it in with the beans and salsa. I prepared the filling and filled the tortillas the night before and cooked them after work. They were delicious. Definitely a keeper.

    I loved this recipe personally. I fixed as said and used whole wheat tortillas. You can check out how mine turned out on my blog - http://thechefamy.blogspot.com/2010/12/chicken-and-black-bean-stuffed-burritos.html

    Made these with whole grain tortillas - worked out just fine. I had to add extra cheese for my family. They were great, even my 1 year old ate an entire burrito herself!

  • Laurie627 Posted: 06/19/11

    Very good! I prepared the chicken breast (boiled and shredded instead of rotisserie) earlier in the day, so this came together surprisingly fast. Will definitely make again.

  • kilchisfishlady Posted: 05/15/11

    Added olives (a family favorite) and used whole wheat tortillas. Excellent and very filling. One was plenty.

    These were delicious, however, I added a pkg. of Knor Taco Rice, did not put salsa in burrito (put on the side instead) and I cooked my own chicken breast. Family loved these.

    These were delicious! I did double most of the spices, but they turned out very flavorful, and very filling - which is great when you're trying to watch your calories. Even my husband (who is not watching his calories) loved them. Very easy to make, we'll be adding this into our "favorites".

    Big hit in our family. Both my 6 year old and my husband loved them. Super easy to make and I loved how grilling them keep them together and easy to eat.

    We loved these burritos! They assembled and cooked quickly. I served them with CL's Zesty Three-Bean and Roasted Corn Salad. Next time I'll use a different onion as the green onions aded very little flavor.

  • THelberg Posted: 08/31/11

    Amazing! I sauteed vidalia onion, red and yellow peppers with some garlic and a drizzle of olive oil, then added the shredded rotisserie chicken, beans, lime juice and seasonings to the pan and heated eveything until warmed. We put the chicken mixture on the tortillas, then added toppings - cheese, black olives, diced avocado, fresh salsa and fresh chopped cilantro - before folding them and heating them in the pan. I LOVED how heating them in the pan gave the tortillas a crispy texture on the outside and helped hold it all together! I will definitely be making these again!

    Delicious and so easy! It takes no time to prep the chicken and beans. I complimented this with the (also delicious) mango salsa recipe and some chips. Yum!

    So easy to make and really tasty. Made 4 burritos, but was filled up on one (husband ate two). Took another user's suggestion and substituted sauteed vidalia onion & red peppers for the green onions. Gave it some extra flavor. Served with some avocado slices and topped the burritos with some extra black bean & salsa mixture.

    My 17-year old son and I agreed this was a good recipe and one that we will add to our meal rotation, but it was not spicy enough. I think it might be better to use pepper jack cheese instead of the Monterey jack. I also think some of the spice in the liquid just didn't stick with the chicken. But, all in all, a good, solid recipe.

    We really enjoyed this. Too spicy for my 11 yr old. You have to make sure you shred the chicken so the spices adhere to the meat. We added avocado slices, red onion and old cheddar...very tasty.

  • stacylynn Posted: 11/07/11

    These were really a tasty change from our usual quick dinner chicken tacos. I really liked the spice mix/lime juice flavoring the rotisserie chicken. I did find that the amount of filling was too much for an 8" tortilla if it was folded as called for in the recipe (& shown in the photo), & I didn't use the full amount in any of them. Using 1/4 cup beans(using the entire can instead of 3/4 cup) & 1/4 cup chicken in each one, I made 7 burritos, folded in to keep the filling from making a mess. Otherwise a good weeknight recipe & giving me ideas for other taco/burrito fillings. Served with CL Fiesta rice & sliced apples.

    Nice way of doing burritos. I used my traditional pinto beans and we really didn't care for the taste of the lime juice. Will make again and either leave out lime juice or cut in half

  • mrscrazyed Posted: 02/21/12

    This was an okay recipe. I followed the directions exactly, even using my homemade refrigerated salsa. There was a lack of spice -- not sure what was missing -- but my major complaint was that the salsa made it way to runny. I really don't like giving this just one star but, honestly, I won't be making this again.

  • sillybluestarr Posted: 02/16/12

    I can't believe how good this is! It's so simple and the texture and flavor are spot on! I added a little bit of lettuce to mine which gave it a nice crunch.

    Very delicious! I didn't use the red pepper though, I didn't it want it too spicy. It went great with a side dish of brown rice. I will definitely be re-cooking this!

  • kallen18 Posted: 05/07/13

    Easy, and delicious. I omitted the salsa and had no problems. The flavor is great. Not overpowering, which is nice if you're serving children. One word of advice, watch the heat when you're grilling the burritos. I used a stainless steel skillet, and weighed down with cast iron. I kept the heat at medium. The first batch was perfectly golden. The second batch charred early on. Next time, I'll turn the heat way down, or consider using my non-stick pan.

  • UVAstudent716 Posted: 10/03/12

    This is SO simple, delicious, and great for a college budget! We didn't have rotisserie chicken so I just boiled a chicken breast. I really think that the salsa that you choose makes these burritos...thankfully I could get my hands on some delicious (and local!) fresh salsa. I will definitely be making this again.

  • Renee5732 Posted: 08/25/13

    Very tasty! Three minutes too long and/or med. high too high. Burned the first few and had to redo. Used about 1/4 cup cheese pieces. The rest was delicious! Will make again.

  • tarapie Posted: 04/20/14

    This is a new favorite in my home. Nice and crunchy outside and warm and gooey inside. Rotisserie chicken made it so easy. I served with a cucumber-cider vinegar salad.

  • lauren57 Posted: 05/08/14

    These were incredibly easy and great tasting. All in all, took about 25 mins, perfect for a weeknight dinner. Using rotisserie chicken is a great idea; saves a lot of time and the sauce gave the chicken plenty of moisture and flavor. My whole family enjoyed them, and I was easily able to set aside plain chicken to do chicken/cheese burritos for my toddlers (always a plus when I can make one meal for the whole family!) Great that they are lower calorie too. Would make again for sure.

  • ziggy2go Posted: 09/03/14

    Great & easy! No need to go 3 minutes per side... 2 is fine. The side salad for this is bad though... skip it.

  • mlhoffman Posted: 08/20/13

    I thought this was great - with very few changes - and may even try to freeze extra. I see where one review noted there was a lack of spice - I accidentally dumped in probably a full extra teaspoon or more of chili powder and it was great - also, note that there's NO salt - which should be welcomed by most but you can season that to taste (unlike commercial taco/burrito seasonings which are LOADED with sodium!) Other than the extra chili powder the only other big change was that I sauteed onions and peppers and added them to the burrito. I also knew enough to drain the fresh salsa so it wouldn't be too runny - actually mine probably could've used a bit more liquid. I think this would be great with a good Pico or with Wegmans Roasted Red Pepper (jarred) salsa. To keep calories/points down i used a low fat cheese but also served with a little greek yogurt ... delicious!

  • Cynthia530 Posted: 06/06/14

    Great, yummy, and easy. Used store shredded rotisserie chicken (great time saver). Added a tsp of chili powder by accident (instead of 1/2 tsp) and it was fine. Added some fresh cilantro to the chicken mixture. Served with medium salsa over the burrito. Definitely will make again.

  • Debbie17 Posted: 10/08/13

    Used left-over grilled 1/2 lb. pork tenderloin. Shredded it and combined in saucepan with water, lime juice, and spices. My stove top grill pan did the trick and the press allowed those yummy looking grill marks to show through. Sprinkled the tops with shredded cheese and popped in warm oven while I finished the others. Don't know which I like better, now....chicken or pork?
