Having a simple meal for the entire family is easy, delicious, and healthy. Add into the equation Mexican food, and you will find you have a delicious meal for any occasion.

Choosing the best solution for your needs means looking at a lot of Mexican food recipes. In addition, you will want to explore the differences between Tex-Mex food and Mexican food. This Chicken and Bean Burritos recipe incorporates a lot of healthy possibilities along with delicious Tex-Mex cuisine that is not always for the healthy conscious.

Chicken and Bean Burritos

4-5 chicken breasts (or thighs or a mixture)
1 small onion chopped
1-2 bay leaves
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp chili powder
1/8 tsp red pepper
1/8 tsp white pepper
1/8 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
chicken stock or broth
1 red onion chopped
1-2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and diced fine
1/4 to 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
grated Colby-Jack cheese
fat free sour cream
2 cans pinto beans, drained and rinsed
lettuce, chopped
tomatoes, chopped
burrito-sized flour tortillas

Place chicken, onion, bay leaves, spices in a pot and cover with chicken stock. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat and simmer until the chicken is done. Remove the chicken, let cool and shred. Strain the broth and save.

Drain and rinse the pinto beans. Place the pinto beans in a food processor and process until smooth, adding a couple of tablespoons of either salsa or chicken broth or sour cream if too thick.

In a bowl, combine the chicken and beans, again adding salsa or the chicken stock until the filling mixture is moist enough to stick together. (If you get it too wet, add more processed beans). Add the chopped red onion, the jalapeno pepper and the chopped cilantro and mix.

Take a large flour tortilla and spread with a little bit of the fat free sour cream and some grated cheese. Add a couple of tablespoons of the filling on one end and fold the sides over and then roll up. You can use a toothpick to keep it rolled up or place it end side down to keep it from unrolling.

Either bake in the oven at 450F until brown and crunchy or microwave until hot. Serve topped with lettuce, tomatoes and red onion, fat free sour cream, grated cheese, salsa and jalapenos.

Have you heard this one….
A Texan’s explanation (exaggerated and over simplified) of what is Tex-Mex food?

“Anything with jalapeno peppers in it or with it is Tex-Mex!”
“Anything that is chicken-fried is Texas cooking”.
“The basic food groups in Texas are: chili, barbecue, beans, jalapenos and Meskun food!”

Remember, if you are looking for an exception chicken recipe for your next meal, you may find just what you are looking for with the Mexican food recipe. Filled with delicious goodness, you will definitely make this a favorite in your household. In addition, you can easily cater this to meet your family’s needs and preferences.
