Chicken and Avocado Ranch Burritos - Healthy Recipes

Chicken and Avocado Ranch Burritos - Healthy Recipes. Living in Los Angeles for the last 16 years, it’s no surprise that I love a good burrito. And when I say a good burrito, I mean one of those burritos from a street vendor – the ones where they pile on the cheese, the sour cream and the avocado.

So that’s exactly what we have here – in moderation. Except let’s pile on the avocado and Ranch dressing while we’re at it. You always need a good dosage of Ranch dressing in a burrito, right?

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch chunks*
  • 1 (1.25-ounce) package taco seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 burrito-size flour tortillas, 10 inches each
  • 2 avocados, halved, peeled, seeded and diced
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup Ranch dressing
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves


DIRECTIONS:

  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Season chicken thighs with taco seasoning. Add chicken to the skillet and cook until golden, about 3-4 minutes; set aside.
  2. Heat tortillas according to package instructions.
  3. Working one at a time, place chicken, avocado, cheese, sour cream, Ranch and cilantro in the center of each tortilla. Bring the bottom edge of the tortilla tightly over the filling, folding in the sides. Continue rolling until the top of the tortilla is reached. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
  4. Heat a grill pan over medium high heat. Add burritos and cook, pressing gently with a spatula, about 3-4 minutes per side, or until golden brown and the cheese has melted.*
  5. Serve immediately.


*Boneless, skinless chicken breasts can be substituted.
*This can also be baked at 375 degrees F until heated through, about 15-18 minutes.
