“These burritos are something of a Tex-Mex wonder: tangy barbecue sauce, some roast chicken (or rotisserie chicken) and vegetables, all wrapped up in tortillas. For the best taste, look for a fiery barbecue sauce without added corn syrup.”


    • 1 2-pound roasted chicken, skin discarded, meat removed from bones and shredded (4 cups)
    • ½ cup prepared barbecue sauce
    • 1 cup canned black beans, rinsed
    • ½ cup frozen corn, thawed, or canned corn, drained
    • ¼ cup reduced-fat sour cream
    • 4 leaves romaine lettuce
    • 4 10-inch whole-wheat tortillas
    • 2 limes, cut in wedges


  • 1 Place a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken, barbecue sauce, beans, corn and sour cream; stir to combine. Cook until hot, 4 to 5 minutes.
  • 2 Assemble the wraps by placing a lettuce leaf in the center of each tortilla and topping with one-fourth of the chicken mixture; roll as you would a burrito. Slice in half diagonally and serve warm, with lime wedges.
  • Eat neat: Keeping the filling inside a wrap or burrito can be a challenge, especially if you're on the go. That's why we recommend wrapping your burrito in foil so you can pick it up and eat it without losing the filling, peeling back the foil as you go.
