Healthy burrito!

So I know tacos/burritos (unless from tacobell) aren't usually SUPER unhealthy, but the ones I made tonight are bangin'....and healthier.

So you'll need:
  • Whole wheat or regular tortillas (I used flour ones because no way I was going to pay 5 bucks for whole wheat)
  • Hummus (I made my own)
  • Shredded chicken breast
  • Lettuce or spinach (any green you like, really)
  • Brown rice (I added broccoli to mine)
  • Salsa and or hot sauce
  • Pinch of salt and pepper
  • Cheese-optional (I didn't use any)
So all you so is:
First, microwave the tortillas with a damp paper towel over top to soften 'em (I think two is a serving for a really hungry person). Then, lay down the hummus so that everything else has something to stick to. Think of it as the re-fried beans on a burrito. You can add as little or as much as you'd like. Next, add your lettuce, chicken and other things. You can add cheese, hot sauce, anything you want...but I only added about half a tablespoon of salsa to each of mine. All that's left is to roll 'em up and you're done :D.

  • You can add beans to this if you'd like, instead of chicken, as your protein.
  • You could use huge lettuce leaves as your burrito's shell instead of the tortillas.
  • You can add anything at all to these, but make sure it's healthy! Things like bean sprouts, tomatoes, etc!
  • If you prepare all of your ingredients before hand, like I did, it's super quick and easy and it makes you want to eat the healthy version more. Just because it's as simple as going to the drive through.
