These were de-licious and they are huge! One is plenty, even for someone who eats a lot like me :-), so with it making 6 you are sure to have plenty of leftovers as well. I found the recipe on The Recipe Club and especially loved the sauce. It is a slightly more tangy and spicy Cafe Rio dressing. I will definitely be making these again. We hadn't had Mexican-style food in way too long and these hit the spot!

{Santa Fe lime rice}
1 cup rice, either long grain or basmati
2 cups chicken broth
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp garlic powder
juice of 1/2 lime
2 TBSP butter
1/4 tsp cumin
1/3 cup cilantro
melt butter in a pot & add all seasonings & cilantro. add rice & cook over medium heat for 2 minutes stirring constantly. add stock & lime juice return to simmer, turn to heat to low. cover & cook about 30 minutes.
set aside.

1 pound chicken, cooked & shredded (I used 1 can chicken and warmed it in a skillet with a little taco seasoning)
you can cook the chicken any way you want. My favorite way is to boil it on the stove, it takes about 25 minutes. I have also cooked it in the crockpot for about 3 hours on high, or just cut up one of the already made chickens from Costco.

1 cup salsa verde
1 package buttermilk ranch
1/3 cup cilantro
1/3 cup sour cream
1/3 cup mayo
1 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp coarse salt
1 Tbls fresh lime juice
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 cup sugar
Put in a blender and blend away
( I usually do one and a half of this for the six burritos. I love the sauce so I like more of it then the recipe calls for.)

6 burrito size tortillas
shredded cheese
1- 15 oz can black beans, drained
rice, recipe above
Put the chicken, rice, beans and cheese in the tortillas. wrap them up cover them with sauce and then put them in the oven on 350 for 40 min covered with tin foil, then I take the tin foil off sprinkle more cheese on top and then cook them for another 10 minutes. Top with sour cream, guacamole, and/or pico!

Hey Marci- Just made your rice and burritos. So yummy! The rice was amazing! I used the brown rice medley from Trader Joe's and it turned out super yummy and creamy.
