Healthy dinner recipes: Chipotle Burrito Recipe

For a yummy dinner recipe, you seriously can’t beat the flavoursome taste of chipotle. This classic dish is made with chicken, but you can also make a vegetarian, vegan and red meat alternative if your dietary requirements allow for it. Finish with a delicious side-salad to get your daily dose of greens.


1 tbsp vegetable oil

3/4 cup fresh salsa

1 chipotle chile

1 can beans (drained and rinsed)

1.5 cups shredded chicken

1/4 cup chopped cilantro


4 tortillas

1/3 cup cooked white rice

1/3 cup shredded cheese

1/3 cup shredded romaine lettuce

Guacamole (for serving)


  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a pot over medium heat, then slowly add the fresh salsa, chopped chipotle and sauce to taste.
  2. Cook until the mixture starts to sizzle, which should take about 2 minutes. Then add the beans and 3/4 cup of water and bring to a slow boil.
  3. Stir in the chicken strips, and cook until the mixture is slightly thickened before adding the cilantro. Now is also a great time to season with salt.
  4. Heat the tortillas, then pop the rice into the lower half leaving a small border on all sides. Top off with cheese, chicken, lettuce and fresh salsa. Then fold the tortilla and serve! You can also serve this dish in a bowl, which is also tasty and very presentable.
