For the Grilled Chicken

  • 1.5 lb chicken tenders, boneless & skinless room temp
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 2 tbsp neutral oil
  • ½ lime juiced

For the Burritos (use as much of the following as you like)

  • 3-4 large Flour Tortillas
  • Pepper Jack Cheese shredded
  • Refried Beans
  • Avocado chopped
  • Pickled Red Onions
  • Tomatoes chopped
  • Cilantro chopped
  • neutral oil


For the Grilled Chicken

  • Preheat grill to medium-high.
  • In a small bowl, add room temp chicken tenders, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tbsp cumin, 1 tsp smoked paprika and 2 tbsp oil. Toss together and set aside.
  • Once the grill is hot, add chicken tenders and close the grill for 2-3 minutes. Open the grill and turn tenders once the bottom of the chicken pieces are golden with grill marks. Cook for another 2 minutes and check temp – the thickest pieces should read 165F when inserted with a meat thermometer.
  • Remove chicken tenders from the grill and place in a clean bowl. Finish with the juice from ½ a lime. Let rest for 5 minutes then cut into bite sized pieces.

For the Burritos

  • Lay out one large tortilla and add a layer (as much as you prefer) of refried beans, pepper jack cheese, chopped grilled chicken, tomatoes, pickled onions, avocado and cilantro.
  • Fold opposite sides of the burrito inwards then roll it together to seal it all in. Set aside.
  • Heat a nonstick pan over medium heat and add a little bit of oil.
  • Add the burrito, seam side down, and cook until golden brown. Turn the burrito and toast on 1-2 more sides or until the burrito has a crispy crust.
  • Wrap in tinfoil. Slice down the middle when you’re ready to enjoy.


Since your tortilla shells may vary in size, I didn’t put the amounts for the fillings because that will change depending on what you like/how much you want to use!
