Chicken and bean burritos

I have been ON FIRE this week.  After cooking up that chicken on Sunday (well, 2 chickens) I've been morphing those babies into many meals, including chicken burritos, chicken sandwiches, chicken and potatoes, chicken salad...

One night was chicken and bean burritos.  I made a pot of pintos last week and used some in a sausage and bean crockpot extravaganza.  The remaining pintos went into the freezer, destined for these burritos.

The filling contained:
1 chicken breast, cut up
3-4 cups pintos
1/3 bag frozen peppers and onion
some salsa
garlic powder

As usual for me, it's all about the toppings.  Now, you can't see the toppings here (they aren't on here yet), but I had shredded local cheddar, sour cream, salsa, and some fabulous guacamole (the avos are really good this creamy).

We had broccoli on the side, but after the burritos, I wasn't hungry so I took it for lunch.

Go you! I've been less-than on top of things this week. Need to change that next week!
