Chicken Rice Burritos Recipe

Publisher Photo
For a nice alternative to beef and bean burritos, I use this recipe, which I discovered several years back. If I fix the chicken mixture the night before, the next day's dinner is a snap. My 14-year-old gives these yummy burritos an enthusiastic "thumbs up"! -Suzanne Adams, Laguna Niguel, California
