Smothered Honey Lime Chicken Burritos

Smothered Honey Lime Chicken Burritos


These homemade Chicken Burritos are so easy to make since they use a store-bought rotisserie chicken. You'll definitely want seconds of this cheesy dish!
  • 1 Package Fresh Flour Tortillas
  • 1 Rotisserie Chicken , meat removed and shredded
  • ¼ Cup Lime Juice
  • ⅓ Cup Honey
  • 6 Cloves of Garlic , minced
  • 1 Tablespoon Chili Powder
  • 2 Cups Cooked Cilantro Lime Rice
  • 1-2 Cups Shredded Colby Jack Cheese
  • 1-2 Cups Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1 Can Pinto Beans , drained and warmed
  • Salsa or Pico de Gallo , for serving
  • Chopped Cilantro , for garnish
  • For the Sauce
  • 1- 16 Ounce Jar Herdez Salsa Verde
  • 1 Cup Heavy Cream , or to taste
  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the lime juice, honey, garlic and chili powder. Add in the chicken and toss to coat. Place in the fridge for 15-30 minutes, covered with plastic wrap.
  2. Prepare the rice and beans.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk together the salsa verde and heavy cream. Set aside.
  4. Heat the tortillas until pliable. Fill with rice, beans, chicken, and a sprinkle of colby jack cheese. Fold up both ends and roll tightly to close.
  5. Place the burritos on a baking sheet and spoon the sauce over each one. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-30 minutes (or we like to have the fillings all warm and then just stick the burritos under a broiler to melt the cheese).
  7. Serve with pico de gallo, cilantro, and / or sour cream.
