  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).

  • Divide mixture among tortillas: Fold and roll to enclose filling completely; place seam side down in small baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.

  • Bake in centre of oven for about 20 minutes or until cheese is melted and tortillas are crispy.

Tips:

Variation -- Replace Gay Lea Sour Cream with Gay Lea Gold Sour Cream for a more indulgent option or replace with Gay Lea French Onion Sour Cream Dip.

Spice up your burritos by dipping them in a combination of Gay Lea Sour Cream, Dijon mustard and lime juice.

Stir sour cream into guacamole to make it extra creamy.

The only changes I made to this recipe were as follows: when I cooked the chicken I cooked it with a pack of fajita mix and instead of black olives I used black beans. Also topped it with Mexican white cheese when it came out of the oven. Amazingly yummy burritos! Received many compliments! Read More

I was surprised that I really liked this dish because I really don't care for Mexican food but I had a big pack of flour tortillas so I went shopping for the other items and cooked it up. I used fajita mix on the chicken as another reviewer had done which was definitely a big flavor booster. I also used Mexican cheese and a red pepper instead of green and omitted the cilantro since we hate it. I served it with avocado slices that I covered in fresh lime juice - loved it. Read More

As a beginner chef i would strongly recommend this recipe. It was easy to make and tasted amazing. I personally am not a big fan of salsa so I subbed in taco sauce instead. It added a different flavor; I would strongly recommend this to anyone who doesn't like salsa. Read More

Per other suggestions I subbed with pre-baked chicken dredged in taco seasoning omitted salsa (to serve with later) pinto beans for olives Monterrey Jack for cheddar frozen Hatch Chile s for green pepper. Even with the changes I highly rate the recipe because it is so amenable to simple tweaks and personal preferences. And easy-peasy! Read More

I followed the directions with one exception I had left over rotisserie chicken breast that I diced and substituted for the fresh chicken. Amazing! Because rotisserie is already seasoned I eliminated the salt and pepper. Read More
