Recipe Card


  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 2 teaspoons Kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 (10 ounce) can Red Gold® Tomato Love Medium Diced Tomatoes + 2X More Chilies
  • 1 (16 ounce) can refried beans, heated up
  • 1 cup yellow rice, cooked according to package instructions
  • 8 large flour tortillas
  • 2 cups shredded Mexican cheese, divided
  • 1 (15 ounce) can Red Gold® Tomato Sauce
  • Bunch of cilantro, freshly chopped, for garnish


  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 400°F. Heat olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Once hot, add in red onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add in ground chicken and cook until heated through and no longer pink, about 7 minutes. Add in garlic, lime juice, salt, pepper, garlic powder, cumin, and chili powder and stir to combine. Add in Red Gold® Tomato Love Medium Diced Tomatoes + 2X More Chilies and stir to heat through, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and set this mixture aside.

  • Step 2

    Assemble the burritos. On each tortilla, add in about ¼ cup of the chicken mixture, plus a heaping spoonful of rice and a heaping spoonful of beans. Add about a tablespoon shredded Mexican cheese on top. Roll up each burrito and place into a large baking dish.

  • Step 3

    Pour the Red Gold® Tomato Sauce over the top of the burritos, plus the remaining Mexican cheese. Bake until the cheese on top is melted and gooey, about 7 minutes. Garnish with chopped cilantro. Enjoy!
