We la la la LOVE Mexican Food at our house!
You simply cannot go wrong with a good Mexican dinner – and these Cilantro Lime Chicken Burritos are one of our very favorites! I wanted to share these with you because if you like Mexican Food – you will love these!!

First – I need to share a couple recipes with you – and then we can work on building the burrito!

Cilantro Lime Chicken (Diced):

1 large chicken breasts
1 t. olive oil
1 t. fresh diced cilantro
1 1/2 t. freshly squeezed lime juice

I like to cook my chicken in a crock pot so it is nice and tender, but if you decide to make this last minute, boiling it should be okay too!! Then dice up your chicken into little cubes and add your other ingredients – let is sit for about 10 minutes so the flavors can soak in! If you need to add more chicken, simply add more of the other ingredients.

Cilantro Lime Rice:

2 cups instant rice (I like things quick!)
1 cube chicken bullion
1 TB. fresh diced cilantro
1 1/2 TB.  freshly squeezed lime juice

Boil 2 cups of water with your bullion and make your rice like you normally would. When your rice is ready add your cilantro and lime juice and mix it together – easy peasy and super yummy!

Once you have these ingredients made – it is time to build your burrito!

You need:
Tortillas
Cilantro Lime Rice
Cilantro Lime Chicken
Black or Pinto Beans
Cheese
Lettuce
Sour Cream
Guacamole
Fresh Salsa

… and a big appetite!

Layer it all on and enjoy! If you don’t like and ingredient – simply leave it off!!
