BBQ Chicken Burritos

BBQ Chicken Burritos - YUMMY! Recipe on { } Recipe includes spicy, grilled chicken, onions, pablano peppers, and a peach and tomato salsa.

I love going out for Mexican food. The problem is I rarely get to finish my meal. But it’s my own fault. It’s all the darn chips and salsa! I can’t be the only who gorges on hot, salty chips from the moment I am seated. They are so good. The homemade ones are the best! They are absolutely irresistible. Add a margarita to my basket of chips and well forget the Spanish rice and refried bean, there is just no room!

The best way to combat over indulging on chips and salsa is to make Mexican food at home. Sure I still serve chips and salsa but after putting the effort into cooking, I get so anxious to dive into the meal!

Recently I made these bbq chicken burritos. This chicken had lots of smoky spice and grilled to perfection. I topped the chicken with onions, poblano peppers and cheese and had myself one memorable Mexican meal! But the best part was the fresh peach and tomatoes salsa! The sweet peaches balanced out the sultry chicken perfectly.

The salsa was too good, I a hard time keeping out of it! I just about ruined my appetite until I smelled that perfectly seasoned chicken. That’s when I put on my stretchy pants and decided, what the heck, you only live once.
