Burrito is a Mexican dish which can be very easily made to suit our Indian flavor and taste. It is a complete meal very delicious and satisfying. Here is a basic recipe which can be modified in hundreds of ways to suit to individual taste.

Recipe For Burrito


  • Chicken breasts (boneless skinless) - 2
  • Tortilla - 4
  • Beans - 2 cups (any beans soaked and cooked)
  • Seasoning mix - 2 tbsp (or as per taste) (chilly powder, coriander powder, garam masala)
  • Tomato - 1
  • Salsa - 3 tbsp
  • Cheese - as needed
  • Sour cream - for garnish
  • Cilantro - for garnish
  • Green Chillies - 2-3 (for garnish)
  • Oil - 1 tbsp


  1. Cook the chicken breast separately, shred it into small pieces.
  2. Take a pan, heat some oil and fry up the shredded chicken. Remove and set aside.
  3. Heat some more oil in the same pan. Add the cooked beans with little water.
  4. Add any seasoning mix according to your taste. I made it Indian style with little chilly powder, coriander powder, garam masala and salt. Let it cook for 2 minutes.
  5. Add the shredded chicken, salsa and cheese to this and mix everything. Switch off after everything blends well.
  6. Take a flour tortilla and heat it on a griddle or microwave as per package directions.
