I was reading Sassy Mama in LA when I stumbled upon a recipe for Chipotle Chicken burritos that made my stomach go into a frenzy of desire! Seriously, these chicken burritos made me want to cancel my dinner plans and run to the grocery store for the ingredients, and I did just that. Well… it was the next day, but you get my point.

PS: There is a giveaway at the end of this post. :)

It took about 5 minutes for the chicken cubes to thaw out and the sauce to heat up on medium heat.

Preparing my Recipe for Chipotle Chicken Burritos

Would you believe me if I said I made this dinner in 10 minutes?

Yolanda’s burrito recipe only took about 15 minutes to make, but 5 minutes is the equivalent of gold to me when I know I can make it quicker. I used ready made chicken, versus traditional raw chicken, so I can guarantee her recipe for Chipotle Chicken Burritos is cheaper than mine is. Have I mentioned how lazy I am? Take a peek at her recipe to figure out if you really need my shortcuts. (I doubt normal people do.)

Did someone out there say Superbowl party burritos? Great minds think alike! The new Del Monte Southwestern-Style Petite Cut® Diced Tomatoes are the perfect way to spice up main dishes and snacking recipes, AKA Superbowl worthy! 

Picture this…

  • I make up an enormous batch of this chicken burrito recipe before my party.
  • I buy some chips, salsa, and beer.
  • I warm up the burrito mixture before the starving people show up.
  • I feed said starving people without missing the Superbowl! That right there is a win-win!

  1. I like to make a layered dip using Del Monte Petite Cut Diced Tomatoes with Green Chilies.

    I use a 9″ round pie dish and layer (and spread out) each item, in this order:

    8 oz cream cheese

    can of refried beans

    can of Del Monte Petite Cut Diced Tomatoes w/green chilies

    8 oz shredded cheddar cheese.

    Right before serving, I microwave about 5 minutes, until cheddar cheese ontop is melted and I serve with tortilla chips.

  2. I make chili for game day. However, it is rarely the same. I used what I have in the pantry and am always trying new recipes

  3. I love a dip made with one package of cream cheese, one lb of breakfast sausage, and one can of Rotel Original Mexican Tomatoes

  4. I love to make tortilla rollups! We just use flour tortillas and them in a bowl mix salsa with cream cheese and shredded cheese. Spread on tortillas and roll up! Then refrigerate over night!

  5. My husband makes the best salsa in the whole world! He roasts some of his own veggies and uses Del Monte canned tomatoes, too!


  6. Our favorite is a simple dip ~

    Brown 1# ground beef. Drain. Add a jar of salsa & mexican cheese dip. Heat through.

    Serve with Tostito scoopers.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  7. Anything that tastes of Buffalo Wings…or any wings. I like to experiment with different flavors, but my heart belongs to flaiming hot wings with blue cheese dip to cool off.

  8. I make pulled bbq chicken soft tacos. I make my own sauce too. Never written it down so it’s never been the same twice ? Thanks for this giveaway.

  9. My favorite game day recipe is bacon wrapped potato bites, dipped in a sour cream/hot sauce mixture. Soooo good.

  10. Garlic Dip and Chips, and Burgers and Hot Dogs on the grill (if its not too cold outside) Then I get to spend time with George Foreman.

  11. I am oh so lucky to have a hubby that cooks so he does his own cooking for gameplay and 99% percent of the time it’s barbecue or ribs in the oven
