Delicious Easy Chicken and Black Bean Burritos are a tasty choice for a quick lunch or dinner. They are very quick to make too!
If you’re looking for lunch or dinner ideas that don’t keep you chained to the stove, here’s a great one from Bush’s Beans, Easy Chicken and Black Bean Burritos. Filled with chicken, beans, salsa, and spices they took no time to put together, and disappeared just as quickly. The ingredients are basic and easy to keep stocked for the perfect last minute go-to meal. I don’t know about you, but I need a few of these kind of meals in my back pocket, especially with the busyness of the school year approaching.
You’ll find Easy Chicken and Black Bean Burritos simple to adapt too. I picked up a rotisserie chicken to use this time, and used a combination of shredded cheeses that I had on hand. Try using shredded pork, ground beef or turkey to switch things up, or maybe experiment with different beans and cheeses? This recipe would make a great one to use for a burrito bar, which would work well for families with picky eaters, or for a fun party spread.
Fill with your favorite burrito toppings, roll it up, serve alongside a simple salad and fresh fruit, and dinner is done!

Recipe from Bush's Beans.
Yes, please!! These are my kind of food! I love Bush’s black beans and anything wrapped in a tortilla an covered with cheese is a winner!
Yum!!! These look amazing, Amy!!!
LOVE simple dinners like this!! Bush’s black beans are my favorite!!
My whole clan loves burritos and they are over the top delicious with black beans!
Simple and satisfying. Black beans are one of my favorites.
Looks good, but to me this is just a fajita — To me, burritos are baked in some sauce and cheese on top — this is the 2nd burrito recipe I’ve looked at that is basically just a fajita. Sure its still good though.
My dear friend, What you are describing is an enchilada which is always smothered with some kind of enchilada sauce and usually sprinkled with cheese; but not always. A burrito is a type of Mexican sandwich, similar to the wrap sandwiches frequently found on restaurant menus and also wrapped in a tortilla. Fajitas are one of my favorites. It is a small tortilla rolled around your choice of beef or chicken, deep fried, and about the rolled up size of of a cigar. Very crisp. Perfect for dipping in hot sauce or salsa. The next time you visit a Mexican restaurant, ask the waiter to explain the difference between a fajita and a burrito. It is all delicious. Enjoy!! Cheers!
I love a quick dinner idea for weekday meals! These look super tasty.
Great recipe for leftover chicken. I would put sauce and cheese on top and bake.
Oh my goodness! This was so easy to make and it tastes great! I followed the directions exactly. I think I’ll try it with ground beef next time. This is a keeper!
