  1. Cut chicken into small 1-inch (2.5cm) cubes. In skillet, melt butter over medium high heat and cook chicken for about 8 minutes or until no longer pink inside. Salt and pepper to taste. Pour into large bowl and stir in 1/2 cup (375mL) of the cheese, sour cream, green pepper, salsa, olives, jalapeno, and cilantro.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
  3. Divide mixture among tortillas: Fold and roll to enclose filling completely; place seam side down in small baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  4. 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.

Delicious and simple to prepare. I did not add the jalapeno to the recipe as I had jalapeno poppers for an appetizer, and omitted the onion. These were very tasty and my entire family loved them!

Really easy to make... I made a version of this recipe but took liberty with what I had on hand. I served it with a dollop of guac and a couple spoonfuls of Mann's Southwest Chipotle Nourish Bow...

I cooked the chicken with taco seasoning and added mexican style rice right before putting the burritos in the oven. Double batch is easy to make, leftovers taste delicious.

No cilantro or sour cream. Added some green onion. Loved it. Daughter loved it. Leftovers for lunch. Victory.
