More About This Recipe

  • This tasty chicken and black bean burritos recipe has all the goods: rotisserie chicken, beans, corn, salsa, cheese and sour cream, and preparing them is so easy. Before you mix the filling ingredients together and start filling your burritos, you’ll notice that the ingredient list specifies that you should drain and rinse your black beans. Ever wonder why many recipes call for this step? And, what is that thick liquid in a can of beans, anyway? The answer is simpler than you may think. In most cans of beans, that liquid is a mixture of water and salt to keep the beans fresh. It naturally becomes a thick liquid because of the starch from the actual beans. By rinsing the beans, you are drastically reducing the amount of sodium that would otherwise be added to your recipe. Some recipes like soups or casseroles may call for the whole can, liquid included, to naturally thicken the recipe, but in the case of these burritos, rinse those beans off so the burritos aren’t too messy and are lower in sodium! You’re likely a big burrito fan after trying this recipe. Want to try your hand at even more? We have a bunch of burrito recipes, from breakfast burritos to beef burritos and more.
