I made Shredded Chicken Burritos for lunch today, it was so easy and they were absolutely delicious.
Using an Instant Pot recipe from Skinnytaste I did the following:
4 boneless large chicken tenders, frozen, no need to thaw them
1 cup chunky salsa
large pinch of oregano
3/4 tsp. of cumin
Sprinkle spices on chicken, put in Instant Pot, add salsa, and using the Manual Setting, set it for 20 minutes, then let steam release naturally.
I shred cooked chicken with an electric, mixer, it’s really fast, or two forks work equally well.
Now for the build:
So simple, refried beans on the bottom, then add your Shredded Salsa Chicken and cheese on top.
Fold over, I never seem to do envelope style, I just fold, add shredded cheese to the top (spray the cheese with Pam, it melts really fast that way and microwave it for 2-3 minutes.
Top with light sour cream and additional salsa, it’s really delicious.
Calories per burrito - I used low carb tortillas, 120 calories, probably 100 calories in chicken, another 60-70 in the refried beans. This picture is hubby’s plate, I didn’t add sour cream and left the cheese out of mine, so I’m guestimating 300 calories per burrito.
The additional cheese and sour cream would bump his up another 150 calories, because I was generous with the toppings.
Did I miss the cheese and the sour cream? Nope I just added salsa to the top of mine instead and it was great!
