I can’t decide which I like more, these Baked Chipotle Chicken Burritos or the Chipotle Sauce I smothered them in. It’s a toss up. In fact, I think I could eat the sauce by the spoonful all by itself, but when I pour it over a hot, cheesy, stuffed burrito, it would have to be a tie. These are, hands down, the best homemade burritos I’ve ever had!
The best thing about these Chipotle Chicken Burritos is that they are just as quick and easy as you’d expect a burrito to be, but when you bake it in the oven for that extra ten minutes, it’s so much better than an ordinary burrito. My kids think these baked burritos are better than any restaurant and I’m inclined to agree. I love when I can make things that taste this good in my very own kitchen!
To give these that extra special spicy flavor, I rubbed down the chicken with ancho chili spice before searing it in olive oil. Just to make sure you don’t miss the flavor, I smothered every burrito in a delicious, creamy Chipotle Sauce. It’s good stuff.
And because I’m a mom and I have to think about things like health and wellness, I made sure to stuff these burrito babies with black beans and sweet potatoes – you know, the healthy good stuff. They are smothered in cheese and the tasty sauce, so the kids don’t mind a bit.
If you haven’t already added these to your dinner menu this week, let me tell you one more reason why these are my favorite burritos. Though they look extra special (it’s that bubbly cheese and creamy sauce, I know it is), these are so easy and so fast. If I can get these on the table in under an hour with four small kids running around the kitchen, so can you! The hardest part is cooking the chicken, which takes less than 15 minutes. So, no excuses! You can totally be staring at a plate of this homemade goodness tonight. This is one meal you don’t want to miss!
