Move over the kabab!  The skewer was yesterday but Mexican has becoming the favourite gourmet junk food on Sydney’s streets and I for one can’t get enough of it!!! after spending time in the US and eating my way around the most amazing Mexican food bars I have fallen in love with the Burrito ! stuffed with either chicken or pork these wraps are delicious and belive it or not packed full of nutrition. Here is my recipe for the perfect chicken rib sticker!!!

Ingredients

Makes 4 big fat ones!!!!!

1/4 cup Water
2 tablespoons Lime Juice
1/4 teaspoon Cumin
1/4 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
1/2 teaspoon Chile Powder
1/8 teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
2 roast Chicken Breasts, meat pulled from the bone and shredded
2 tbs roasted red pepper strips
1/4 cup spring onions, finely chopped
1/2 cup Salsa
1-15oz can Black Beans, drained
1/4 cup chopped Coriander
1-2 tablespoons Olive Oil
4 Flour Tortillas
1/2 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese or Double Gloucester if you can find it
Splash Chipotle Tabasco available from www.gourmetgroceronline.com.au as is all your herb and spices

Directions:
In a small sauce pan, combine the water, lime juice, cumin, ground plack pepper, chilli powder, red pepper flakes and bring to a boil. Remove from heat, then add in the chicken and spring onions and stir well to coat. Set aside. Meanwhile, stir together the salsa, beans, red pepper strips and coriander in a small pan just to warm

Assemble your burritos by layering the bean/salsa mixture, chicken, and cheese in a narrow strip along the center of the tortillas and splash with chipotle sauce. Fold the edges of each tortilla in towards the center and place them side by on a baking tray, bake at 180 degrees until the cheese is thoroughly melted. Enjoy with salsa, sour cream and guacamole!
