1 tablespoon vegetable oil

3/4 cup pico de gallo or fresh salsa

1 chipotle chile in adobo sauce, chopped, plus 1 to 2 tablespoons sauce from the can

1 14-ounce can pinto beans, drained and rinsed

1 1/2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken, skin removed

1/4 cup roughly chopped fresh cilantro

Kosher salt

4 burrito-size flour tortillas

1 1/3 cups cooked white rice, warmed

1 1/3 cups shredded monterey jack cheese (about 5 ounces)

1 1/3 cups shredded romaine lettuce

Guacamole, for serving (optional)


  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a medium pot over medium-high heat. Add 1/2 cup pico de gallo, the chopped chipotle, and adobo sauce to taste; cook until the mixture starts to sizzle, about 2 minutes. Add the beans and 3/4 cup water; bring to a low boil, then stir in the chicken and cook until the mixture is slightly thickened, about 2 minutes. Stir in the cilantro and season with salt.
  2. Heat the tortillas as the label directs. Arrange the rice horizontally in the lower half of each tortilla, leaving a 1 1/2-inch border on all sides. Top evenly with the cheese, chicken mixture, lettuce and the remaining pico de gallo.
  3. Fold the bottom edge of each tortilla snugly over the filling, tuck in the sides and roll up tightly. Cut the burritos in half and serve with guacamole.
