Black Bean, Chicken and Chorizo Burritos

This Rachael Ray burrito recipe is the only meal that my picky older brother has requested I make repeatedly. I've been making them for five years and they never fail to delight :)

  • 2 tbs oil
  • 1 large onion-chopped
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups white rice
  • 3 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 1/3 lb chorizo, chopped (a package usually weighs 3/4 lb… use half)
  • 3 large garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1.25 to 1.5 lbs chicken tenders, chopped into small dice
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 small jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 14 oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • tortillas
  • cheddar cheese
  • salsa
  • sour cream

 The Rice
  1. Heat a medium sauce pan with a tight fitting lid over medium heat with about 1tbs oil.  Add 1/4 of the chopped onion and season with salt and pepper, then cook for 1 minute.  Add the rice, stir to coat in the oil, then add 2 1/2 cups of the chicken stalk and bring up to a simmer.  cover the pot, reduce heat to medium low and cook the rice for 15-17 minutes, until tender.

The Meat

 2. While the rice is cooking, preheat a large skillet over medium high heat with 1 tbs oil.  Add the chorizo and cook for 2 minutes.  Add the remaining chopped onion, garlic, cumin, coriander and a little salt and pepper.  Cook for about 3 minutes or until the onions start to get tender.  Add the chicken and cook for 4-5 minutes or until cooked through.
Add the remaining cup of chicken stalk to the skillet with the chorizo and chicken and bring it up to a bubble.  Once it is simmering, add the black beans and continue to cook until the liquids are just barely visible and the beans are heated through, a couple of minutes. 

The Salsa

3.Halve the avocado, remove the pit and carefully scoop out the flesh.  Cut the two halves into bite-sized pieces and transfer to a bowl.  Add the halved tomatoes, jalapeno, cilantro, lime juice, salt and pepper and mix to combine.

 Just wrap it up in a tortilla, and top with cheese and sour cream.
