Yield 4 Servings
Ingredients

  • 1 2/3 cups drained and rinsed black beans (991645, 6/#10, Furmano)
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped (05329, 1#)
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice (990333, 12/32oz, Castella)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin (CQC094, QT)
  • 1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt (CQS030, 12/3#, Morton’s)
  • 1 1/3 pounds Devault precooked chicken steak (DVF2750, 3/4#)
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder (CQC041, QT)
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper (CQP071, QT)
  • 1/2 pound shredded pepper Jack cheese (774139, 4/5#)
  • 4 large, 10-inch, flour tortillas (559914, 12/12CT, Father Sam’s)

Method
In a small glass or stainless-steel bowl, combine the beans, cilantro,  lime juice, cumin, and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt.

Heat the chicken steak on the stove top with the chili powder and pepper. Cook the chicken over medium heat until thawed, about 4 minutes.

Heat the oven to 350°. Put one quarter of the cheese in a line near one edge of each tortilla. Top the cheese with one quarter of the black-bean salsa and then with one quarter of the chicken steak. Roll up the burritos and wrap each one in foil. Bake them until the cheese melts, about 15 minutes.
