Chicken and Avocado Baked Burritos


Are you getting your body ready for summer?

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen some motivating pictures a couple weeks back. I challenged myself to complete the 30 Day Shred workout DVD, and then I posted my “before and after” pictures for everyone to see.

Yeah, frightening. But knowing that I was going to post them kept me motivated. Just because my 30 days is over doesn’t mean that I am done. I am starting up another challenge and I want you to join me! Starting today. Right now. Let’s do it!

Chicken and Avocado Baked Burritos

Not only will I be getting in a 20 minute workout every day (Monday-Friday) {let’s not get carried away here} but I am also going to be watching what I put into my mouth. I want lean and healthy proteins to give me the energy to keep going, so you better believe that Tyson® Grilled & Ready® chicken is a staple in my fridge.

These Chicken and Avocado Baked Burritos are so simple to throw together, and taste sinfully good without all the guilt. My husband and I used to indulge ourselves with fried burritos when we were first married, and oh-boy were they tasty… just not so good for our waistlines. I love how these baked burritos still have that crispiness to them and my waistline loves it too.

Having the Tyson® Grilled & Ready® chicken strips in my fridge has seriously helped me make better meal choices. The convenience of having fully cooked chicken breast slices at my disposal makes it that much easier to quickly create mouthwatering dishes that my whole family can enjoy.

I can assure you that your whole family will love these Chicken and Avocado Baked Burritos. My kids even gobbled them up. I made several at one time so I could have them in the fridge and ready to eat for lunches throughout the week. I even packed a couple in my kid’s lunches for school!

High-five for easy & healthy school lunches!

Are you ready to make the commitment with me?

Tyson Foods, makers of Tyson® Grilled & Ready® products wants to help out too. Remember last month when I told you all about the Countdown to a Better You Program? It’s still going on over on their Facebook page (which is filled with more great recipes and tips). They’re so motivated to get YOU motivated that they’ve got a great incentive program going on. You only need six bags of Tyson® Grilled & Ready® products to win a gift code to a top fitness or cooking retailer.

It’s a win-win for you!

Chicken and Avocado Baked Burritos

To help you out even more (and to keep me motivated too), I will make a daily post on my Facebook page every day that I worked out. If you do a workout too, then make a comment on that Facebook post letting me know how you’re doing. Buddy systems are the BEST! While you’re on Facebook, hop on over to the Tyson® Grilled & Ready® products page to get more great recipes to keep you going!

But first, make these Chicken and Avocado Baked Burritos.

Ready…set… GO!

Chicken and Avocado Baked Burritos
  • 6 large whole wheat tortillas
  • 2 cups Tyson® Grilled & Ready® chicken strips
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup frozen corn kernels, thawed
  • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted and diced
  • ¼ cup diced green onion
  • ¼ cup finely chopped cilantro
  • ¼ tsp of each: garlic powder, salt, cumin, smoked paprika (or regular paprika if that's all you have)
  • Cooking spray
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Combine all ingredients except the tortillas in a large bowl and toss to mix.
  3. Lay out each tortilla and place about ½ to ¾ cups of chicken mixture in the center. Fold up the burritos, making sure to enclose both ends.
  4. Lightly spray a foil lined baking sheet with cooking spray, then lay the burritos seam side down on the tray. Spray the tops of the burritos with the cooking spray.
  5. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the outsides of the burrito are lightly browned and crisp.
  6. Enjoy with sour cream and guacamole (optional)
Notes from Shawn:
Pair these burritos with some of my Easy Mexican Rice for a complete meal!

  1. It can be so hard to eat healthy especially if it feels like I’m depriving myself of yummy stuff and eating boring stuff instead. These look and sound delicious and in no way boring. Definitely easy to be healthy if you have recipes like this up your sleeve!

  2. These look so yummy and so easy–my favorite combo!

  3. I love these Shawn!! I need to try Julian’s workouts. Maybe then I can eat four of these. :)

  4. Yum yum! I love the filling in these!

  5. OH MAH GOOOOOSH, Shawn! I die for avocados stuffed in anything. These burritos look perfect for an easy weeknight meal!

  6. I made these tacos tonight for dinner and they were so amazing! I cooked the chicken in the crokpot with some hot enchilada sauce and shredded it. Kept everything else the same. My hubby loved them! Great, easy weeknight meal. Will be making again!

  7. I made a version of this myself tonight based off of yours, just changed a little bit and it was delicious. Thanks for the inspiration!

  8. Can you post the recipe for the rice too?

  9. I can’t wait to try these out with my boyfriend! We’re making them tomorrow, I’ll have to let you know how they go 😉


  10. Just made these today after seeing them on interest and they turned out great!
