Recipe for Stuffed Burrito with Chicken

Ah, burritos; the ever popular, incredibly versatile Mexican wrap sandwich. Their very nature lends this dish to a great many variations, nearly all of which have a large and devoted audience.

There are a lot of possibilities to explore with burritos; but this particular recipe is a perennial favorite, the burrito suizo (literally, “Swiss burrito”). This variation is filled with chicken and served topped with salsa and sour cream. It is a little too messy to eat on the go, but definitely a great way to enjoy a burrito.

Other than cooking the chicken, this is a quick and easy recipe to prepare. If you already have some cooked chicken on hand, then this can be a quick meal indeed. The amount of work which goes into putting things together is minimal and of course, a great burrito is definitely a reward well worth a little bit of effort. A little chicken, a little bit of black beans, some salsa, and spices are all it takes to make a burrito, which is much more than the sum of its parts.

The reason this can be known as a ‘Swiss burrito’ is the cream on top. Although this is an optional garnish, it suits the burrito and is a worthwhile addition. The onions and garlic are sautéed first, then you can add the chicken, beans and spices. Warm your tortillas, add the filling, and roll them up, topped with cheese and salsa.

Add some sour cream to finish these off in the ‘Swiss’ style (or omit it if you prefer) and they are ready to serve. These are tasty and aromatic, and they are a nice way of using up leftover cooked chicken.
