These burritos are a wonderful, hearty dish flavored with onion, jalapeño, garlic, cumin, chopped scallions and fresh cilantro.

Burritos made with GOYA® Black Beans, on their own, are sure to be a simple favorite for anyone who needs a new black bean recipe in his or her regular lineup, but throw in chicken breast strips, and you’ve got yourself a Tex-Mex delight that’s also high in protein.

If you’d like to enjoy this recipe with a twist, skip the tortilla and build a burrito bowl instead!

Step 1

Heat oil in medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onions; cook until soft and translucent, about 7 minutes. Stir in jalapeño pepper, garlic and cumin; cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds more. Add the chicken and drained beans to saucepan and cook, stirring constantly, about 5 minutes.

Step 2

To assemble burritos, mound rice, chicken and bean mixture, cheese, chopped scallions and cilantro on one side of tortilla. Roll up tortilla into burrito shape. Place burrito, seam-side down on serving plate or platter. Repeat with remaining ingredients.

Step 3

Serve burritos with salsa, sour cream and guacamole, if desired.

Tip by La Cocina Goya

For a fun twist, skip the tortilla, and just make your burrito in a bowl!
