Living in Texas, I’m a big fan of Mexican and Tex-Mex food. I’m also a big fan of fusion foods. You know, basically the food equivalent of a song mashup. I love combining different cultures’ flavors, which is why I enjoy this burrito so much. It combines the delicious Mexican flavors I’ve always loved with cool, creamy ranch for an American twist. It makes an excellent dinner for any night of the week because it’s so easy and a great addition to parties, potlucks, or any gathering. There’s really no wrong time to make this delicious recipe. I love to make these burritos for dinner and then have them for lunch the next day. And if you have kids, these are great for pulling double duty as dinner one night and after-school snacks the next day.
Chipotle Ranch Grilled Chicken Burrito
This delicious burrito combines Mexican and American flavors to super tasty effect. It starts with boneless chicken breasts that are cubed and cooked in a blend of zesty spices. Then, I combine it with chipotle ranch and avocado ranch dressing. Finally, I stuff a tortilla with the chicken, along with cheese, avocado, tomatoes, lettuce, and tortilla strips to create a dish that’s full of all kinds of flavors and textures, so it’s satisfying on every level.
