Quick and Easy Creamy Salsa …

Hi Chef In Training readers! I’m Kristy and I blog over at Sweet Treats and More where I share a lot of sweets, healthy eats, and everything in between.  I’m so excited for Nikki and the arrival of her new baby boy! I’m expecting a boy as well and slightly jealous that her little guy is already here.  I love snuggling on little newborns!  I hope you are getting some sleep Nikki, and lovin’ on that little man every chance you get:)

Healthy Creamy Chicken Burritos… This is a recipe that your whole family will love!

Today I wanted to share a quick and easy meal because I know what a challenge getting dinner on the table can be after having a baby.  Especially when you’ve got two other  little kids running around.  But everyone’s got to eat, right?  So I like to stick to super  simple meals that require just a few ingredients.  And if there’s any way to make them a little healthier, I do that too.

Healthy Creamy Chicken Burritos… This is a recipe that your whole family will love!

These Creamy Salsa Chicken Burritos only take 10-15 minutes to throw together! Shredded rotisserie chicken, Greek yogurt,  salsa (your choice), and black beans, make a super creamy, flavorful chicken filling to stuff inside a warm tortilla.  Roll them up with a little brown rice, lettuce, and cheese and you’ve got a great tasting burrito!  The Greek yogurt makes the filling especially creamy, and I promise, no one will know you used Greek yogurt! Make these as mild or as spicy as you’d like with the type of salsa you use!

Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 1 (14 oz) can black beans, drained
  • 2 cups plain, nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup salsa (I really like to use a mild Salsa verde)
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice (use the quick rice)
  • chopped lettuce
  • 1½ cups shredded cheese
  • 4 flour tortillas (or use whole wheat)
Instructions
  1. In a saucepan, whisk Greek yogurt, salsa, cumin, garlic, and salt and pepper together over medium heat. Stir in shredded chicken, black beans, and ½ cup of shredded cheese. Cook over medium heat until cheese is melted and mixture is hot.
  2. Warm flour tortillas in the microwave or on a griddle. Divide creamy chicken mixture among tortillas. Top with a heaping spoonful of brown rice, chopped lettuce, and a sprinkle of shredded cheese. Roll up burritos and serve.

Enjoy!

Thanks so much Kristy for being here today!
