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.

After a long week, I was looking for something easy and healthy (but still delicious!) to make for dinner for my husband and I. I grabbed a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store and whole wheat tortillas. Everything else I had at home already ( I LOVE when I find recipes with things I usually have in the pantry), so I was able to whip this together quickly. It was soooo good. I put some shredded cheese on the tortillas I pan-warmed for my hubby (what can I say, the man loves cheese and never gains any weight). With or without the cheese though, it was still fabulous! I usually can't make a recipe without adding a bunch of my own ingredients and spices to it, but with this, all I did was add a little cayenne for spice. The rest was perfect!

I loved this recipe.It tasted great when I made it. My sister loved it. The best part was that I'm a horrible cook and it was so easy to make. Nothing came out burnt. Yay!

Made this recipe last night and it was great. My picky husband and kids enjoyed it! Instead of roasted chicken, I sliced up some chicken breasts and sauteed it with salt, pepper, garlic powder, cumin and finished it with lime juice. The barbecue sauce and sour cream mixture is a delightful combination, creamy and tangy but not rich. This recipe is a keeper!

Very delicious recipe and it is extra tasty if you add tomatoes, I added some chunky salsa and that gave it a little more bite. I also just cooked my chicken breasts in a pan first with salt & pepper, half a lemon squeezed and a whole lime squeezed. Added a nice fresh citrus taste. I squeezed more juice into pan when I was mixing up the corn/bean ingredients as well. The barbeque sauce adds an unexpected twist and when I was finished I didn't feel heavy and slow, I felt recharged and content. Great, easy recipe I will make again soon.

This is my first recipe I made from eatingwell. I oven baked chicken breast seasoned with black pepper, paprika, cumin, garlic/onion powder, and red pepper flakes then shredded that to use. I had two nice size breast. It came out really good. I didn't think of it until after eating, but in order to cut out more calories I could have just ate it as a lettuce wrap in the romaine instead of the whole wheat wrap. I added some advocado and pico de galo to mine too. I will make again.
