6 Servings

Burritos

  • Santa Fe Lime Rice (p.123)
  • 1 pound boneless (skinless chicken breasts)
  • Salt and ground black pepper
  • 1 15-oz can blacked beans, drained
  • 6 burrito-size flour tortillas
  • 1 cup 4 ounces shredded Pepper Jack cheese or Monterey Jack

Sauce

  • 1 cup bottled salsa verde
  • 1 0.4-ounce packet buttermilk dressing mix
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • Dash Tabasco (optional)
  1. Prepare the rice and keep warm.
  2. Meanwhile, grill (or broil) the chicken breasts over medium heat, 6 to 8 minutes per side, until tender and no longer pink. Shred the chicken with two forks. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. To make the sauce, put all the sauce ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth. Heat the sauce in a saucepan or the microwave.

  5. To assemble burritos: Divide the chicken among the 6 tortillas. Add a scoop of rice and a scoop of beans to each one. Fold up the bottom third of one tortilla over the filling, fold in the sides, and then fold down the top. Repeat for the remanning tortillas.
