How To Make Chicken Burritos with Black-Bean Salsa and Pepper Jack
Level up your usual burrito meals with this easy-to-make filling chicken burritos, served with tangy black-bean salsa and sweet-herby pepper jack cheese!
Light the grill or heat the broiler.
In a small glass or stainless-steel bowl, combine the beans, scallions, lemon juice, cumin, and ¼ teaspoon of the salt.
Rub the chicken breasts with the chili powder, pepper, and the remaining ¼ teaspoon of salt.
Cook the chicken over moderate heat for 5 minutes. Turn and cook for 4 to 5 minutes longer until brown and just done.
Remove, let the chicken rest for a few minutes, and then slice.
Heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Put ¼ of the cheese in a line near one edge of each tortilla. Top the cheese with ¼ of the black-bean salsa and then with one quarter of the chicken slices. Roll up the burritos and wrap each one in foil.
Bake them for about 15 minutes until the cheese melts.
Serve warm, and enjoy!
