  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine the cooked shredded chicken with salsa, cumin, and oregano in a large bowl.
  3. Prepare Knorr(R) Fiesta Sides(TM) - Mexican Rice according to package directions. Remove from the heat.
  4. Stir rice and shredded cheese into the chicken mixture. Divide the mixture among flour tortillas; wrap and place seam-side down on a lined baking sheet. Brush with oil.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown and crispy, about 20 minutes. Serve, if desired, with your favorite toppings.

Footnotes

  • I've partnered with Knorr® to let you know what I think about Fiesta Sides™. As always, all opinions are my own.
  • Recipe Notes:
  • Rotisserie chicken works great in this recipe.
  • Use your favorite salsa, or fire roasted tomatoes with green chilies.
  • Cheddar or pepper jack cheese can be substituted for the colby-jack.
  • Because of the high oven temperature, olive oil is not recommended for brushing the tortillas.

This was an excellent dish and made easier when I prepared the ingredients ahead of time for a large gathering. I shredded the meat from a rotisserie chicken and made Mexican rice and beans fr...

LOVED IT!!!! Definitely worthy of all 5 stars. It made 8 burritos, though, not 4. Yum!

I made this last night, it was good. I used regular white rice instead of the spanish rice since I dont like peppers. My family liked it, my dad liked alot without the tortilla. We did burritos ...

It was delicious! Even the hub liked it - and he's not a big fan of "different."

I made it just like the recipe. I think I will add fajita chicken next time. But really good with the extra cheese, sour cream, tomato, onion, and lime on top

Everyone chowed down! In the future I’ll make more. I made my own Spanish rice, but other than that, I followed the recipe. However, they were fully baked in 12 minutes.

We loved this recipe! I did use Rotel as some users did since I had it on hand. I used a Mexican rice recipe on this site. Delicious and crispy! Just as good reheated! Definitely a Keepe...

I’ve had this under my saved recipes forever and just now making it! First I doubled the recipe and got 10 large ones. The original 4 serving size should easily make 5-6. I was also out of this ...
