“This is just a made-up recipe that uses up leftover chicken and my whole family likes. It vaguely resembles burritos....”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the bell pepper into thin strips. Slice the onion into strips as well. Heat the oil to medium-high in a largish pan or wok, and toss in the pepper, onion, and mushrooms. Fry until the onion begins colour through.
  2. Toss the chicken and stir it around until it's well mixed with the other ingredients. Then dump in the jar of salsa. Stir it all around again, put a lid on it, and turn the heat down to medium low. Leave it for about 5 minutes, stirring once or twice.
  3. Take the lid off. If it's really saucy, leave the lid off for a couple of minutes to let the excess moisture dissipate.
  4. Prepare the burritos by putting about a 1/2 cup portion of the meat mixture in the upper centre of a tortilla (this will depend on your appetite and the size of your tortilla!). Top with shredded cheese and a dollop of sour cream. Fold over left side of the tortilla over the filling, fold up the bottom, then roll towards the unfolded side.
