Smothered Honey Lime Chicken Burritos



1 Package Fresh Flour Tortillas

1 Rotisserie Chicken , meat removed and shredded

1/4 Cup Lime Juice

1/3 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


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.

Prepare the rice and beans.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk together the slasa verde and heavy cream. Set aside.

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.

Place the burritos on a baking sheet and spoon the sauce over each one. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.

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).

Serve with pico de gallo, cilantro, and / or sour cream
