Crispy Chicken and Cheese Burritos with Fresh Mango Salsa

Summertime is upon us, friends and let’s face it…cooking dinner (or lunch!) can be a dilemma. Schedules are loose, it’s hot, there are children everywhere (bless them!) and time spent in the kitchen seems to always be hurried. These yummy Crispy Chicken and Cheese Burritos are my latest quick fix dinner option for many reasons.

First, they make fantastic use of leftovers. I opted to use leftover Grilled Chicken and Lemon Butter Rice, but you could use leftover cafe rio pork or chicken, taco meat, cilantro lime rice, plain white or brown rice, etc…

Second, they can be assembled and made in about 30 minutes! A bonus that is a blessing, yes?

Lastly, they taste fantastic, especially if you dip them in the Fresh Mango Salsa I posted earlier in the week, but honestly they are wonderful dipped in salsa from a jar and sour cream if you need to simplify things further.

Simple is good, am I right?
