3 of 3 new recipes

Over the past week I have received three recipes from readers who wanted to pass along recipes they have had or from their own friends saying they were great recipes. So for my own readers, I want to pass them along to you. Enjoy and be sure to post comments so the original reader can see what you think and can pass it back to the creator of that recipe.

PS: I have not had any of these yet, so the recipes are being posted as sent to me.

Hey scott!

I've had this recipe a long time, but I think you might enjoy this. I've
made this 4 or 5 times now because it is so easy, and it tastes like
chipotle or california tortilla.


Easy Burritos

1-2 TBS of olive oil
2-3 garlic cloves
1 medium onion (yellow or red) doesn't matter
1 package of Southwestern chicken (pre-cooked/sliced)
1 can of Del Monte diced tomatoes with green chiles (called zesty)
1 can of light red kidney beans (any brand you want)
1 sml can of sweet kernal corn
lime juice
Salt (to taste)
Pepper (to taste)
Cinnamon (to taste)
shredded cheese - amount up to you (we use pepper jack and cheddar)
sour cream
2 cups Jasmine thai rice (we always have left over rice)
burrito wraps (we just eat the rice and everything else in a bowl

Ok so I've never written a recipe so I'll try to do it step by step.

1 We have a rice cooker so we always put the rice in before we start cooking. That way everything gets done about the same time. Whatever rice you use, think about how long it takes to cook. The rest of the recipe doesn't take long to cook.

2. Dice your garlic cloves and chop your onion. Heat the olive oil in a wide sauce pan (that has a lid) over med-high heat. Add your garlic and onion to the oil in th pan. You want to stir the garlic and onions until the onion softens and starts to lightly brown.

3. While the onion/garlic is cooking get everything else ready. Open the can of diced tomatoes and corn. Open and rinse off the kidney beans in a strainer. And then open the chicken and cut the strips up into cubes or bite size pieces. Once the onions are brown, add everything to the pan.

4. Now you should have the garlic, onions, chicken, kidney beans, diced tomatoes, and corn all in the pan. Now you can season it with salt, pepper, and a little bit of cinnamon. Put a couple squirts of lime juice in as well. You can turn the heat down to medium or medium low. The goal is to heat everything up. If you're still waiting on the rice, turn the heat down on the mixture in the pan and cover it until the rice is ready.

5. You are ready to eat when the rice is done. Time to make the burrito. Grap the wrap, put some sour cream on it, add the rice, put the mixture from the pan on, add the cheese, wrap and eat.

Voila! That's it.
