Chicken Bean Burritos

I haven't done a big grocery trip in a few weeks so we have been eating lots of quick fix meals that aren't necessarily worth blogging about which explains my absence. Pay day is tomorrow and we are going shopping whether we like it or not!

Tonight I needed to "throw" something together and this is what I came up with. I must say I was pleasantly surprised with how well they turned out. I wish we would have had some sour cream but we were out. The fact we are out of sour cream in this house goes to show you how long it has been since I have gone shopping. Sour cream and Katie is like butter and Paula Deen...they go hand in hand. This meal literally took less than ten minutes to get together!
Chicken and Bean Burritos

1 (16 oz) can refried beans
1 (9.75 oz) can cooked chicken
1 cup salsa
2 cups shredded cheese
1 tbsp. butter
onion powder
garlic powder
8 flour tortillas

1.) In a medium sauce pan add beans and salsa, mix well and cook on medium low heat.

2.) In a small skillet on medium heat add butter and chicken. Break apart chicken into small pieces and then add cumin, onion powder, salt, garlic powder, and paprika. A dash or two of each is plenty! Cook until warmed through.

3.) Warm tortilla shells in microwave for fifteen seconds.

4.) Add chicken to beans and mix well.

5.) Add 1/3 cup bean mix to tortilla shell and then top with shredded cheese.

Serve along side Old El Paso Mexican Rice and you have a quick Mexican themed meal. This meals serves four.
