Poultry, South American/Mexican


One day, I decided to make something cheesy using leftovers. So I did. I had some burritos, some chicken breasts and cheese. So I decided to wrap all these things together and make some sort of a sauce and bake in the oven.

For the sauce, I roasted all these vegetables and then blended them, adding salt.
The result was this spicy sauce. The spiciness came from the small Indian green chillies that I had bought at Mustafa weeks before.
My filling assembly line. The chicken breasts were roasted in the oven simply with salt, black pepper and a bit of olive oil. And then I shredded them. The thick brown sauce is actually vegetarian refried beans.
Put a burrito in a hot pan for just a few seconds. And then place it on a board. Spread the refried beans, top with chicken and the sauce. Put cheese on top (I used one slice of emanthal cheese).
Just roll it up and place it in a baking dish, seam side down.
Pour all the sauce on top, top with mozzarella cheese and bake till bubbly.
This really has to be eaten hot. And one is already a lot. I was ambitious by plating two. It was rich, spicy and completely delicious. One success story here after quite a few bad attempts at some other dishes the previous days.
