Chicken burritos and homemade chips!

This is a really simple and fast meal, but it's always nice to have some of those, right?


1 chicken breast, cooked and shredded
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 green pepper, cut in long strips
1 can black beans
1can refried beans
10 tortillas


Place the cooked and shredded chicken, onion, green pepper, some black beans, and some refried beans in a tortilla. Warm in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Remove from microwave and add your favorite toppings. (guacamole, sour cream, cheese, salsa)

To make the chips, use a pizza cutter to cut triangle shapes out of the tortillas. Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray. Place the chips on the cookie sheet. Spray the tops of the chips with cooking spray. Place in the oven and broil on high for 1 minute, turn the chips over, and broil for 1 more minute. Be careful and watch the chips, I thought I could leave one batch in there for a second while I finished something else up, no way...they were toast!!

This picture is compliments of my cute husband. He wraps his burritos so nicely, and his plate looked very artful. I thought so, at least. I asked him if he'd take a picture, and even though he was starving and didn't want to ... he relented. Bless his heart.

I was feeling so adventurous this weekend and I tried the homemade chips. After burning about 4 or 5 tortillas worth (you weren't kidding when you said make sure to watch them!) they turned out pretty well.

Haha, they really do burn fast! It stinks up your kitchen a little, but ... they're worth it. :)
