My sister-in-law, Shannon, used to work for Pampered Chef. Years ago, when I took my kids out to St. Louis to visit, Shannon made this for dinner one night. I loved it so much I had to get the recipe from her! I was a little surprised that it was a Pampered Chef recipe, but then again, for a company that makes so many great cooking products, why not have some great recipes as well?
This recipe really is pretty simple to make and we think it's super yummy! Give it a try!
Here's what you'll need:
1-2 tomatoes, thinly sliced
3 C. diced or shredded, cooked chicken
1/2 C. chopped fresh onion OR 1 Tbsp. dried chopped onion
1/2 lime, juiced
3/4 C. salsa
1 Tbsp. taco seasoning
1 garlic clove, pressed OR 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
2 C. shredded cheddar cheese or Colby Jack cheese
8 (12 inch) flour tortillas
1 can refried beans
lettuce, olives, sour cream, green onions, Avocado Lime Sauce
Avocado Lime Sauce:
2 ripe avocados
1/4 C. sour cream
1/2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
1/8 tsp. salt
Combine all ingredients in a medium-sized bowl and combine well.
Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine the chicken, onion, lime juice, salsa, taco seasoning, and garlic. Microwave on High for 3-4 minutes or until hot, stirring occasionally. Stir in 1/2 C. cheese.
Arrange tortillas in an overlapping circular pattern on a round stone or a baking sheet. Use 4 tortillas per envelope you'll make. You'll have 2 envelopes for this recipe.
Just so you know, I only had gargantuous tortillas to use, so these proportions may not look the same as yours.
Starting in the center, spread the refried beans over tortillas forming a large square (approximately 10 inches x 10 inches). Spoon chicken mixture evenly over beans. Top with cheese.
Fold edges of tortillas up over chicken mixture in an envelope pattern.
Arrange tomato slices over top of burrito.
Sprinkle with a little more cheese.
My kids don't like tomatoes, so I made one envelope with tomatoes on top and the other one without.
Bake at 425 degrees for 15-18 minutes or until cheese is melted and tortillas are light golden.
I use a pizza cutter to slice the burritos into rectangles. Serve with lettuce, sliced olives, green onions, sour cream, and Avocado Lime Sauce (or you can use store-bought guacamole or avocado dip). Serves 8.
