Mexican Cuisine – Burrito Tuesday

Today is Tuesday. And Jennifer Taylor, the Mama of the Smart Girls Who Surf, shared her favorite and so much family-friendly recipe of one her frequently used recipes.

California Burritos

We live in California where Mexican food is a weekly must. We have our own “Taco Tuesday” and we make fresh chicken burritos and tacos. It is fun for the kids, because we prepare everything together and then they get to build their own burrito.

Several chicken breasts
Tomatoes (chopped)
Cilantro (chopped)
Avocado (chopped)
Cheese (shredded)
Black Olives (sliced)
Black Beans (canned)
Salsa (get a couple of different ones)
Corn and Flower Tortillas

Preparation: It is very easy.
• We usually bake some chicken breasts, or if you are pressed for time you can usually get a fresh roasted chicken at your local store.
• We chop tomatoes, cilantro, lettuce, avocado and put into separate small bowls.
• Then I get some shredded cheese and sliced black olives, again in separate bowls.
• All of that is put on the table with a variety of salsas.
• I heat up both corn and flour tortillas as well as some black beans and we are ready to eat.
• I always try to pair our spicy Mexican food with some cool fruit, like cantaloupe or a fresh fruit salad.
