  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  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.


  • 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!

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!

These are pretty easy to make and are good, but not super-delicious. They come out with a nice crisp shell. I started with uncooked tortillas, which might have made them a little tastier. I also...

My picky husband loved it. It made 5, but it easily could have been 6 or 8. We each ate 1 and were a little too full. I used a mexican cheese blend and spanish yellow rice and it was perfect....

My hubby is the cook in the family but is working long hours lately. So I've been given "dinner duty", having not cooked anything more than boxed Mac 'n Cheese, Instant Oatmeal and boiling water...
