Chicken Burritos
  • 2 tsp. oil
  • 0.5 lb. ground chicken meat*
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 cloves of garlic, whole
  • Vegetables (traditionally, use green and red bell peppers, zucchini, and yellow summer squash.  But I've found it's equally delicious with whatever else is in season --- snow peas, shelled peas, green beans, carrots.  Use your imagination!)
  • Spices to taste: chile powder, lemon juice, salt, pepper, paprika, oregano
  • Flour tortillas
  • Grated mozarella and cheddar cheese
  • Fresh tomatoes, lettuce, green onions, salsa, sour cream, or whatever other garnishes you choose


Sautee onions and whole garlic cloves in oil until onions become translucent.  Crush garlic with a fork.  Add vegetables and spices and cook until vegetables are soft.  Add chicken and cook until all of pink is gone.

Meanwhile, grate cheese and prepare tomatoes, etc.  Warm tortillas in oven at 350 F for a few minutes.  Everyone can make their own burrito.

Serves 2-4.

* We often find ground chicken or turkey reduced to a very low price in the grocery store.  When we do, we buy it all, pack it in half pound sections, and freeze it.  It thaws very quickly in the microwave and is a very easy meat to cook with.
