This is a go-to dish when I'm in a rush to make dinner. Preparing them in the skillet not only saves time, it gives the burritos a crispy outside and ooey-gooey inside. —Scarlett Elrod, Newnan, Georgia

Ingredients

  • 1 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pickled jalapeno slices
  • 2 teaspoons chopped onion
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon grated lime zest
  • BURRITOS:
  • 2 cups cubed cooked chicken breast
  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (11 ounces) Mexicorn, drained
  • 1 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 8 whole wheat tortillas (8 inches), warmed
  • Cooking spray
  • Salsa, optional

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the first six ingredients. In a large bowl, combine the chicken, beans, corn, cheese, salt and 1/2 cup sour cream mixture. Spoon 1/2 cup chicken mixture on each tortilla. Fold sides and ends over filling and roll up. Spritz both sides with cooking spray.
  2. In a large skillet or griddle coated with cooking spray, cook burritos in batches over medium heat for 3-4 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Serve with remaining sour cream mixture and salsa if desired.
