Don’t forget all of the fixings too. Like guacamole,  bean salsa , tomatoes and sour cream to go with this delicious chicken burrito.

If you like enchilada sauce, add some to the bottom of the pan. I think either green or red would be a delicious addition to this recipe.

Chicken Burrito with Rice Recipe

You can even freeze these burritos ahead of time which makes life so much easier.

How do you freeze burritos?

  • Do not add the cheese topping. Freeze wrapped burritos in a zip tight freezer bag. When ready to heat for dinner, add frozen burritos to your baking pan. (If you want enchilada sauce under your burritos, add that to the bottom of the pan before placing burritos down). Sprinkle top of burritos with cheese.

How do you Reheat Frozen Burritos?

Bake an extra 10-15 minutes to allow the burritos to thaw and heat through.

  • Chop the chicken into bite-sized pieces
  • In a large skillet over med-high heat, add olive oil, and saute onions until they are tender and translucent (another optional add-in right here would be sliced bell peppers – cook along with the onions)

  • Cook until heated through
  • Spoon Mixture evenly into Tortillas, and roll tortilla Place rolled burritos into a 9×13 casserole dish

  • If you like a wet burrito, then add enchilada sauce to the bottom of the pan before placing burritos in pan and to the tops, before sprinkling any cheese on top of the burritos
  • Another great add-in for this recipe could be sliced green pepper. Throw that in with the onion and saute’

    What size pan ? Should I add enchilada sauce

    1. Melissa

      Thank you for asking that. Use a 9×13 Baking Dish. I updated the recipe to include this information. I haven’t used enchilada sauce with this recipe, but if I did, I would use the green enchilada sauce and pour it into the bottom of the pan before adding the rolled up burritos. I always love dishes with sauce. I think this would be a great addition. It’s totally up to you though. If you add all of the toppings that I suggested, there is plenty to dunk your burritos into.
