Quick and Easy Crispy Chicken and Avocado Burrito Wraps (Under 10 Minutes!)

Quick and Easy Chicken Burritos That’s it, I’m officially a fan of Mexican food! I don’t know if it’s the mixture of cilantro and veggies, the tortillas, or all the gooey cheese, but I’m hooked!

It all started when a new Mexican food cart started appearing in the corner around where I live. I passed by there a few times without paying attention to it; but one day I walked by and smelled the most appetizing taco aroma. I decided to give it a try and that’s it.. I immediately fell in love with it and now I find myself making all types of Mexican food. The flavors are wonderful and most of the recipes are very healthy and are composed of fresh vegetables and sauces.

Quick and Easy Chicken BurritosThese burritos are very easy to make and can be prepared ahead of time , refrigerated or frozen for months! I made a batch and put it in the freezer for my husband for work. You can also use leftover chicken , I actually had half a rotisserie chicken left over so I shredded it combined it with the cheese, cilantro and avocados and wrapped them up. BurritosĀ  are such a fantastic way to have meals on hand and they can be prepared in minutes.

If you do not have cooked chicken on hand, grill or sear 2 chicken breasts for 10 minutes then slice into thin strips.

    Hi! How do i cook if i freeze Them uncooked?

    ThanK you!


      You can make the mixture (with cooked chicken), wrap them, freeze, then microwave them for 1 minute and transfer to a lightly oiled pan to crisp them up.


    How well does the avocado hold up frozen?


    Yum! my kids just requested this be added to our dinner rotation! I made this as is but added black beans.

    hello, this recipe looks great and i would love to make them ahead and take them to work for lunch, i am curious how the avocado will hold up… will it be all brown if not eaten the first day? and how would you suggest making it for a weeks worth of lunches? thanks


      They should still be green in the middle the next day as long as you don’t cut it but I wouldn’t suggest making a week’s worth.


      I would just make a weeks worth without the avocado. Then when you have one put the avocado on top??


    These are AWESOME! I added a squeeze of lemon, pinch of salt and garlic powder to up the flavor a bit. Will totally be making again!!
