Re: Quick, easy but yummy meals

Here's a recipe I got from Nick Jr Family Magazine a couple of years ago. BIG hit in my house, and I have super picky eaters.
Quick Chicken Burritos
1 Tbs vegetable oil
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into thin strips
1 large carrot, peeled and shredded (or 1 cup preshredded carrots)
1/2 to 1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 to 1 tsp chili powder
1 can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup frozen corn kernels
1 cups shredded cheddar cheese
3/4 cup salsa
6 flour tortillas (You can get spinach ones for extra veggies, and the kids love that they are green!)
1. Heat the oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken, carrot, cumin, and chili powder and cook until the chicken is no longer pink, 4 to 5 minutes.
2. Stir in the beans, corn cheese, and salsa and cook until heated through and the cheese melts, about 2 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, stack the tortillas on a microwave-safe plate, uncovered, and heat in the microwave until warmed through, 30 to 45 seconds.
4. Assemble by placing the chicken mixture down the center of each tortilla. Wrap burrito-style and serve.

Hope your kids like it as much as mine!
