Here’s a healthy burrito recipe, for when you get that craving. Whole grains, lean protein and crunchy veggies make this a quick and tasty recipe that you will use over and over again.

  • ¼ cup cooked black beans
  • ½ cup cooked chicken, chopped (shredded if you can)
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh corn kernels (optional)

  1. Warm the tortilla in a dry skillet. Spread the hummus or guacamole evenly over the tortilla.
