Chicken, Rice and Black Bean Burritos

Preparation

1
Cook the chicken breasts and chop in small pieces. Or get a rotisserie chicken or precooked chicken and shred it up into small pieces. Roughly 2+ cups for the amount needed.
2
Mix tomato sauce with 1/2 cup water and add spices.
3
Heat but not to boiling. In a separate bowl mix the two cans of black beans. (I can't always find the refried black beans but when I do it's in the Mexican food section of the grocery aisles and it really does make a diffdernce in the texture. You can still use regular black beans but you'll need to drain and discard the juice of one of the cans.)
4
Line up your assembly line for the burittos with your pan of tomato sauce, pan of rice, black bean mix, bowl of cheese and the chicken.
5
Now put a few tablespoons of sauce in the bottome of a 9x12 glass baking dish. Put one tortilla on a plate and a tiny bit of sauce in the center of tortilla. Now place some rice, bean mix, some cheese and then chicken. Roll up the buritto and place in the dish.
6
Repeat for the other 5 tortillas.
7
Cover the burritos with the rest of the tomato sauce mixture then top generously with cheese.
8
Cover with foil. Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove foil gently and bake another 5 or 10 minutes so the cheese is gooey. I get the burritos out of the pan with two spatulas and sometimes they even stay together. One is very filling and a salad goes well with it.
