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...

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.


I just made these and they were sooo good!!!! Instead of onion I used green pepper and I grilled the chicken with a tex-mex spice on it. I also added a bit of garlic and tex-mex spice to the green peppers. The bbq sauce gave a nice hint of flavor. It was easy and quick. Love this and will make it again!!


It's very rare for my husband to say, "This is really good," but this was one of those times. I'd make it again with white tortillas, even though it's less healthy. We added tomatoes.


I loved everything about this recipe! It tastes GREAT and is super simple to make. This is only my third recipe to try from this site, but it is one that I will definitely make again, I just added it to my favorites.


making it tonight... we'll see - but i'll post asap to let u know but adding salsa seems like the PERFECT idea : )
