Burrito a la Deb

Leaving work today and hearing it was about 95 and the heat index around 100 - I knew I did not want to heat up my kitchen or even stand at the grill.  But I also knew it was time to actually cook a meal!  It had been awhile since I had the kitchen open for business.  So I headed off to Target with no list but a semi-plan in my head and maybe because the exit passed right by Chipotle that plan turned into home-made burritos.  I only needed to make some rice and heat up the beans and chicken.

The ingredients were easy to find - first up pre-packaged beans and the rice - we've had this rice before and it tastes really good and is done in about 15 minutes

Lately for recipes that call for cooked chicken, I have this bag of frozen strips on hand that only needs defrosting

Other ingredients included

The burrito was assembled in this order

Then carefully rolled up and ready to eat - they are quite large but The Fisherman managed to eat 2!  ssshhh don't tell him I told you!

Not quite like Chipotle but very tasty indeed!


  1. One of my favorite meals. I must have Hispanic blood in me ... Mexican food is my fav.

  2. I like the tip about cooked chicken strips. So often I delay making a recipe because I don't have the chicken cooked already, or because I don't feel like taking the time to do it, so these sound like they'd come in really handy. Burritos look yummy too!

    1. I know - me too! I had wish I had thought of this idea earlier!!


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! I appreciate you stopping by! Have a great day!
