This recipe comes straight from Linn and is very quick when running low on time.

Numerous days this one has come in handy when we don’t have an entire hour or more to cook. Plus, this simple burrito recipe is great for food prepping!

Whatever we make tends to last us around three days in meals (even though the sour cream doesn’t).

Making the Burrito

I may have overestimated the time it takes to prep this, but we usually take our time cooking. 

To start, simply trim all of the chicken breast of excess fat and cut into one inch pieces. Then sprinkle in 1 tsp of oregano, chili powered, and cumin. Finally, some salt and pepper to taste. 

These ingredients will add some zest but not too much. Also, make sure the chicken is tossed or stirred to ensure an even coating.

Finally, pan fry the chicken and prepare some tortillas to wrap them in!

If you struggle to wrap burritos like I used to, here’s a helpful video to teach!
