Chicken Avocado Burrito Recipe (CUSTOMIZABLE Weeknight Meal)

Easily customizable, these chicken avocado burritos are perfect for “taco” night. You can use a rotisserie chicken or any precooked chicken, cheese, cilantro, sour cream, and avocado to make these quick & DELICIOUS chicken avocado burritos! Printable recipe below.

In our house, I could eat tacos or fajitas (like this Homemade Crunchwrap Supreme Recipe), every single day. However, I started adding these burritos into the mix because they’re so darn easy. When I get a rotisserie chicken from Costco I feel like this recipe is a no-brainer for dinner.

You can also pre-cook chicken in a slow cooker or buy cooked fajita chicken for these burritos. It makes this one of the fastest (tastiest) dinners on the planet!

You can also use this same ingredient list to make chicken taquitos instead of burritos.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups cooked and shredded chicken
  • 2 tbsp chopped cilantro
  • tortillas
  • 4 tbsp sour cream
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup grated cheese
  • 1 avocado, diced

How To Make Chicken Avocado Burritos

Prep by pre-cooking and shredding chicken. If you’ve purchased cold chicken, reheat it by pan-frying it in a little olive oil to give it some freshness and crispiness.

Then heat up your oil in your pan on about medium heat. You don’t want the oil to smoke or burn.
