The Best Chicken Burrito


Move over the kabab!  The skewer was yesterday but Mexican has becoming the favourite gourmet junk food on Sydney’s streets and I for one can’t get enough of it!!! after spending time in the US and eating my way around the most amazing Mexican food bars I have fallen in love with the Burrito ! stuffed with either chicken or pork these wraps are delicious and belive it or not packed full of nutrition. Here is my recipe for the perfect chicken rib sticker!!!


Makes 4 big fat ones!!!!!

1/4 cup Water
2 tablespoons Lime Juice
1/4 teaspoon Cumin
1/4 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
1/2 teaspoon Chile Powder
1/8 teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
2 roast Chicken Breasts, meat pulled from the bone and shredded
2 tbs roasted red pepper strips
1/4 cup spring onions, finely chopped
1/2 cup Salsa
1-15oz can Black Beans, drained
1/4 cup chopped Coriander
1-2 tablespoons Olive Oil
4 Flour Tortillas
1/2 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese or Double Gloucester if you can find it
Splash Chipotle Tabasco available from as is all your herb and spices

In a small sauce pan, combine the water, lime juice, cumin, ground plack pepper, chilli powder, red pepper flakes and bring to a boil. Remove from heat, then add in the chicken and spring onions and stir well to coat. Set aside. Meanwhile, stir together the salsa, beans, red pepper strips and coriander in a small pan just to warm

Assemble your burritos by layering the bean/salsa mixture, chicken, and cheese in a narrow strip along the center of the tortillas and splash with chipotle sauce. Fold the edges of each tortilla in towards the center and place them side by on a baking tray, bake at 180 degrees until the cheese is thoroughly melted. Enjoy with salsa, sour cream and guacamole!
