Today's Special: Chicken, Mushroom, and Goat-Cheese Burritos

Today's Special: Chicken, Mushroom, and Goat-Cheese Burritos

Isn't it fabulous fun to think outside the box? Generally when making burritos I stick to the usual Tex-Mex inspired ingredients of beans, rice, and pepper jack cheese, but today I was in the mood to jazz things up a bit. Instead of using my usual chicken with tomato salsa and cilantro mixture, how about using mushrooms, green salsa, spinach, and goat cheese? Sound deliciously gourmet? Well it's made with store bought chicken making it easy and quick! I've never had goat cheese on a burrito before, but can imagine that it will be creamy and crumbly. The spinach will add a fresh crunch making this burrito a perfect on the go meal that you can scarf down before you meet the girls for cocktails. Get the recipe and

Chicken, Mushroom, and Goat-Cheese Burritos
From Martha Stewart

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 jalapeno chile (ribs and seeds removed for less heat), minced
Coarse salt and ground pepper
10 ounces white button mushrooms, trimmed, thinly sliced
1 rotisserie chicken (about 2 1/2 pounds), skin removed and meat shredded (about 4 cups)
1 package (10 ounces) frozen corn kernels
1 cup prepared green salsa, plus more for serving
6 burrito-size (10-inch) flour tortillas
1 bunch flat-leaf spinach, thick stems removed (3 cups)
1 log (5 ounces) soft goat cheese, crumbled

  1. In a large skillet with a lid, heat oil over medium. Add onion and jalapeno; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 3 to 5 minutes.
  2. Add mushrooms; cover, and cook until they begin to release their liquid, 3 to 5 minutes. Uncover; cook, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms begin to brown and skillet is dry, about 5 minutes more.
  3. Add chicken, corn, and salsa. Cook, stirring, until heated through and mixture is saucy, 4 to 5 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, heat tortillas according to package instructions. In center of each tortilla, layer spinach, chicken mixture, and goat cheese.
  5. Wrap burritos one at a time: Fold side of tortilla closest to you over filling. Fold right and left sides toward center, and roll up. Halve if desired; serve with additional salsa.

Serves 6.

Thanks ALSW! I think I have a Japanese double-compartment lunchbox lying around that'll be perfect to carry two of these.

illogicaldee - If you wrapped it in some foil, it would probably stay together pretty well.
