Chicken Avocado Burritos

So here’s the thing: I’m pregnant, have a toddler, and am moving. I have no time. That’s why I haven’t posted a recipe in weeks because my son is home full time for all of August and we’re moving and I’m pregnant. I don’t have much time to cook nevermind experiment or post about it.

But last night I looked up something quick on Pinterest – surprise! I had a rotisserie chicken (see above) and wanted to make something other than chicken on a plate. These burritos are fast and made me and my husband happy.

I added tabasco sauce and served with salsa on top. That gave them a little spice. I also didn’t have fresh cilantro but I’m sure that would’ve enhanced their yumminess and I used plain Greek yogurt instead of sour cream which is one of my favorite food swaps. I used shredded cheddar because I had it on hand. Delicious. Fast. Not just chicken on a plate.
