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...

SOOOO yummy. I hate to cook during the week because I am pooped when I get home from work. This recipe is so simple and easy. Oh yeah, and it tastes amazing!


It was so easy to make and taste amazing. I got full very fast and didnt feel bad because I was eating something healthy for myself.

Fast and easy
Full of Flavor, Yet Simple to Make

I love this recipe. It is straight forward but I wouldn't have put the corn, beans, bbq sauce, and sour cream together. My boyfriend now makes this recipe for himself once a week! Any protein, beans, or veggies could easily be incorporated into this because the majority of the flavor comes from the sauce. It is also great with a quick veggie slaw on top of the chicken!

Little prep time, Easy to make substitutions
Great Recipe

We really liked this one....I passed it on to others too....quick, easy and a lot of flavor....

Exciting Dish for a Workday Lunch!

I loved this recipe! I didn't have barbeque sauce, so I used salsa instead and I thought they turned out great! I am looking forward to trying them with barbeque sauce next time. My favorite part about this recipe is how easy it is to make (especially if you use a rotisserie chicken!), and how satisfying and fresh it tastes (it makes a great lunch at work!). I will try the idea that another poster suggested about squeezing the lime juice in as you cook the bean/corn mixture, because the lime juice really made the burrito! Also, I think this is the first burrito I've ever made that I did not put cheese on it, because it didn't need it! :)

Easy to make, satisfying and light
