These chicken burritos are SO easy to pull together. A. Hello, we're using a rotisserie chicken. Shred, shred, shred; done. B. The kid version is crazy-simple, with black beans and a kiss of salsa, and takes, like, four seconds to make. What takes them over the top is a little jaunt under the broiler. Oh my. You guys, the cheese will brown and bubble. Your face will sing praises. Your legs will involuntarily do a little jig.

Ingredients

Directions

Preheat the broiler. In a large skillet, add the shredded chicken, black beans, salsa and 1/2 cup water. Heat through, salting as desired. At this point, you're ready to build the kid-friendly burritos. Using tongs, transfer about 1/2 cup of the chicken mix into the center of a tortilla. Top with a small handful of shredded Cheddar, tuck in the sides and roll up to form a burrito. Repeat with another tortilla, 1/2 cup chicken mix, and Cheddar.

Now, if you want the burritos warm and toasty, just top with more Cheddar and slide them under the broiler for a minute or two, melting the cheese. Top with salsa and serve! Now, for you, let's amp up our burrito filling a bit-cool? So, you'll just add the cilantro, red onion, cumin, scallions, chopped jalapeno and a good squeeze of lime juice. You could even add a little more salsa if you want! You should want. Toss it all together and heat it through, adding more salt and pepper to taste. 

Place a mound of the filling in the center of 2 more tortillas, and top with shredded Cheddar. Fold in the sides and roll up to form burritos. Top with more Cheddar and broil for a minute or two, for extra awesomeness. This will be a good decision for your life.

Cut the remaining lime half into wedges. Slice the burritos in half and garnish with the remaining sliced jalapeno, lime wedges, cilantro leaves, avocado, tomato and a dollop of sour cream! You'll never know what hit ya.
