Chicken and Bean Burritos

This was an easy meal to toss together with many possibilities of how to serve it.  I served it as burritos but you could also use the filling in quesadillas, nachos, tacos, etc.  Quick, easy, and the kids will eat it???  Yes, please!

Chicken and Bean Burritos

1 lb. chicken breast tenders, cut into 1-in. pieces
1 small yellow onion, finely chopped
1 1/2 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. cooking oil
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 red pepper, finely diced
1 c. Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
8 whole wheat tortillas
cooking spray
avocado, tomatoes, salsa, etc. on the side

Instructions:

Combine chicken, onion, chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook chicken mixture for 6-8 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Add beans and garlic and cook for 2 minutes or until heated through.

Divide chicken among tortillas, add cheese, and roll up. Spray with cooking spray on each side. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and place burritos on pan. Cook 2 minutes per side or until browned. Cut in half and serve with avocado, tomatoes, salsa, etc.

Food for Thought: This makes a great combination to freeze ahead of time and keep on hand.
