This recipe is simple but well balanced. A squeeze of lime just before wrapping them up offsets the sugar in the barbecue sauce, and the burritos, while filling, are pretty light, because of all the vegetables.

Not sure if I did something wrong or what, but we thought this was good, but not great. I thought it was too much green pepper, not enough chicken, and lacked some ingredient (haven't figure out what yet). I also didn't think it needed 2 tbsp of oil at the end to brown the burritos, maybe more like 1 tbsp or just some cooking spray. Also, I think next time I will drain the chicken/onion/pepper mixture before adding in the BBQ sauce. The water/oil from the pan thinned out the sauce (so our burritos were dripping everywhere). I'm really going to need to tweak this the next time I do it. I will say that it was very quick, easy and different from normal burritos.

This was fantastic :) Added some red pepper flakes to give it a little kick and some honey to make it sweeter.
