  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.

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

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

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 ...

I made my own rice and doubled the recipe but it was delicious!

Made with white rice. 3xcellent!

So tasty and a great change from the same old Saturday family meal.

Excellent & easy!

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 added black beans and used a Jambalaya rice mix. It was awesome! My adult son loved it. He took the leftovers home and actually asked me how to reheat without a microwave!
