Cinco de Mayo

In honor of our neighbor to the south’s Independence, I decided to make a little Mexican meal for dinner.  I was really craving some burritos, so I came up with these.  They were super good.  Ole!

4 chicken breasts sliced into strips
1 1/2 tsp. garlic salt
1 tsp. ground black pepper
1 medium onion sliced

Directions:
-heat a non-stick skillet with cooking spray over medium-high
-season the chicken with the garlic salt and pepper and add to hot skillet
-saute the chicken, adding the salsa halfway through cooking time (after about 4 minutes)
-continue sauteing chicken until cooked through
-Add chicken to prepared rice and beans and mix
-Add cilantro and stir to combine
-spoon mixture into bottom third of burrito wrap.  Fold the bottom up and the sides in and roll up to close.  Serve with salsa, sour cream and or guacamole.

    I think its uber klassy that you have a corona in the background. But at least its “light” right? LOL.

    This sounds SO good! Love that bottle of Corona in the background … adds just the right “draw”. 🙂

    I saw this recipe and just had to make it. We didn’t have the cilantro and had to use kidney beans instead, but mmmmmmm, mmmmmmmmm, good.
