Chicken and Rice Burritos

Recipe from Mission Tortilla

This is from the back of the BIG mission flour tortillas package.  I like to add a can of rinsed black beans to the mix.  Also, I have never had my rice cooked with this recipe simmering it at 20 minutes.  I add just a smidge more water and simmer it for 25 minutes.  I don't like crunchy rice.  Experiment with different BIG size tortillas in your deli section they have a large variety.

Chicken and Rice Burritos

8 Large size flour tortillas
2 1/2 c. pre-cooked chicken, shredded
3/4 c. long grain white rice, uncooked
1 (1-oz) package taco spices and seasonings
1 3/4 cups water
1 (8-oz) can tomato sauce
1 large tomato, chopped
1/3 c. green onion, chopped
cheddar cheese, shredded

In a large skillet, place chicken, rice, seasonings, water and tomato sauce.  Bring mixture to boil cover, and simmer for 20 minutes.  Add chopped tomato and green onion to combine evenly.  Place 1/2 cup filling in each tortilla, roll burrito style and serve with optional garnishes.

Servings: 8
