  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, drained and rinsed

  • 2 green onions, chopped

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice 

  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin, ground

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided in half

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder 

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, ground

  • 1/2 cup pepper jack cheese, grated

  • Four 9-inch flour tortillas 



  • Preheat the oven to 350�F.

  • Combine the black beans, green onions, lemon juice, cumin, and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt in a small bowl.

  • Rub the chicken breasts with the chili powder, the black pepper, and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon of salt.

  • Cook the chicken in a skillet over medium-high heat (350�F in an electric skillet) for 5 minutes. Turn and cook until done, 4-5 minutes longer.

  • Let the chicken cool, then slice into strips or chunks.

  • Divide the cheese evenly among the tortillas. Top the cheese with equal amounts of chicken and black bean salsa mixture.

  • Roll up the burritos and wrap each one in foil.

  • Bake the burritos until the cheese melts, about 15 minutes.

  • Refrigerate the leftovers within 2-3 hours.
