Two is better than one... Grilled chicken burritos

Things are better in pairs.
Peanut butter and jelly.
Chips and dip.
Bread and butter.

My husband and I.

Oh yeah, we go in that category too.  He comes up with some ideas sometimes that are good, but when you put them together with mine... they're excellent.

Tonight was like that.  I told him we were having grilled chicken burritos... would he mind grilling the chicken? 
He said he'd do that... but what if we grilled the burritos too?

And then after dinner, he said he'd like his burritos grilled from now on thankyouverymuch. 

If you haven't done this... you need to.
And if you have done this... why did you not tell me!?!?!

Spice rub for chicken (I used pampered chef chipolte rub)
1 tsp lime juice
1 tbsp olive oil
3 chicken breasts

1 can black beans
1 can diced tomatoes
1 tsp green chilis (I had some in the fridge from spicing up some hummus this week.)
1 tsp garlic
1/2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp cumin
1/2 c corn

Flour tortillas
1 cup montery jack cheese, shredded

Marinate the chicken in the olive oil, lime juice and spice rub.

Grill the chicken.

Dice the chicken and put it in a large nonstick pan over medium heat.  Add the beans, tomatos, chilis, garlic and cumin.

Add corn.

When warmed through, put a scoop (Drain it well!) into a tortilla.  Add cheese and wrap it up.  Spray the burrito with oil, or cooking spray.  Place it on a grill pan.

Place the burritos in the grill pan on the grill over medium low heat.

Grill for 3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown.



  1. Those look good. Burritos are a favorite here but I had never thought to cook them on the grill.
