I have been trying for years to duplicate my favorite burrito from my favorite south Florida Mexican restaurant. I started making it in casserole form and was pretty happy with this one, a combination of beans with a sweet and creamy sauce. I have many variations of this, but this is the basic idea behind it. Serve with a side of chopped lettuce and tomatoes.

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray a 9x13 inch baking dish with cooking spray.

  • Line bottom of baking dish with 4 tortillas. To make the honey sauce, whisk together the mustard, sour cream, and 1/3 cup honey in a small bowl. Combine the red pepper, green pepper, garbanzo beans, black beans, and corn in a large bowl. Scoop out 1/2 cup of the bean mixture and reserve for topping.

  • Stir the chicken, 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese, 1/4 cup Cheddar cheese, cumin, yellow rice, and honey sauce into the bean mixture. Mix well. Pour mixture into the baking dish. Top with 4 tortillas; sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese, 1/4 cup Cheddar cheese, and the reserved 1/2 cup bean mixture.

  • Bake in preheated oven until hot and bubbly, 30 to 45 minutes. Cover with aluminum foil if top browns excessively. Remove from oven, drizzle with the remaining 2 tablespoons of honey.

EXCELLENT DISH AND SOO EASY. I did make 4 minor changes: (1) used whole wheat tortillas (2) baked as burritos not as a casserole (3) instead of mixing the sour cream/honey/mustard mix in dish I drizzled it in the middle of the burrito b4 I rolled it and then also on top of the burrito and (4) added a little salsa to the top of the burritos. I only used about 1/4 - 1/3 of the honey/mustard/sour cream mixture.... i think the dish would have been WAY too sweet using the entire mixture. The recipe really is awesome easy and healthy!!

I use a lot of chicken in my cooking and was really looking forward to a new recipe. Unfortunately no one in my family liked this. I just didn't like the sauce and the mozzarella was just "weird"...should have used jack instead. Read More

I was excited to try this recipe out as I've been wanting different chicken recipes. I was hesitant about the honey and mustard but figured it must be an amazing flavors since most have liked it. I was wrong. It was ok. If you don't really like a sweetness to your dinner then definitely skip this one. I agree with another reviewer about the nice mix of chicken/rice/beans/veggies but just didn't like the honey mustard sauce. Perhaps I'll keep the filling but change the sauce to something different.

I made this recipe ( doubled) for my son's football broadcast team at his high school for our grand opening.It was a huge hit with teenagers and parents alike. I was asked for the recipe as well! Great choice for that type of crowd and easy to prepare! I am a no frills type of cook so this was perfect for me. Make it and they will come! Read More

I absolutely loved the flavors in this one. I think that the yellow rice is going to be essential and I'm really glad that I found it- it wouldn't be the same with white or brown rice since it has the seasonings already there. I followed the recipe exactly since it was my first time making it and my husband and I really enjoyed it. I did use large burrito-size tortillas and I could have gotten away with just two on bottom and two on top. Although very good as is I think that next time I will do these in actual burrito form rather than a casserole and maybe up the rice by another 1/2 cup. Thanks for a unique lighter twist on burritos!

My husband and I really enjoyed my version of this recipe. I am gluten intolerant so I used Ezequiel brand tortillas. I substituted brown rice for the yellow Agave syrup for honey. I didn't have green peppers or garbanzo beans so I just doubled the red peppers and black beans. What a treat this was! I might try a little hot sauce in the honey mixture next time to give it some zip. Read More

I had high hopes becuase of all the rave reviews but I did not like the flavor of this at all. The mustard taste was way too strong. Good combination of beans and veggies though. Read More

I had some turkey left from making AR's Make Ahead Turkey Gravy so I substituted it for the chicken. Also had some 6" flour tortillas that needed to be used so that size worked well for me in this casserole (still used 8). I'll admit I was concerned that the honey would make this too sweet and really thought the mustard sounded a little strange. However it all ended up tasting pretty good. Read More
