Skillet Chicken and Avocado Burritos

In the mood for a light meal? Try these Skillet Chicken and Avocado Burritos, their crisp tortillas are filled with chicken, avocado and cheese. They are quick and easy with only 7 ingredients. Serves 4 Total Time: 20 minutes 


3 skinless boneless chicken breasts 
1 tablespoon butter 
1 tablespoon olive oil 
2 avocados, diced 
1 lime, juiced
1/2 lb shredded Mexican cheese blend 
8 flour tortillas 
Garnish: diced tomatoes (optional)
Serve: sour cream, green Mexican salsa (optional)


In a large skillet melt the butter and oil until hot. Add the chicken and cook on med/high heat until internal temperature reaches 160F. Shred and set aside. 

In a bowl toss the diced avocados with the lime juice. 

Butter one side of the tortillas. On your dry, hot skillet cook one tortilla at a time until just hot and soft on both sides. Remove to a solid surface. On the unbuttered side place 1/8th of the chicken,  avocado and cheese; then fold one end and roll. Heat until slightly crispy. Repeat with remaining burritos. Garnish each with diced tomatoes, if using and serve immediately with sour cream or green Mexican salsa (optional). Easy Peasy!
