Yes. The economy sucks. I cannot afford giving my leftovers to my dogs. So, this is me making due:

1/4 cup cubed avocado
2 tbsp salsa

Jalapeno and Orange Burrito?

The huge benefit of roasting your own chicken is all the amazing leftovers. The orange glaze chicken we made the other day really puts a little zest into any dish you recreate with it. In this quick and easy burrito, the orange roasted chicken definitely compliments the heat from the jalapenos. Be prepared to salivate.

1 low carb burrito size tortilla (around 100 calories)
3 oz leftover orange roasted chicken.
1/4 cup fat free sour cream
1/4 cup fat free mozzarella
2-3 tbsp sliced jalapenos

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In small bowl mix sour cream, mozzarella and jalapenos
Spead cheese mixture onto tortilla
Top with chicken (after being shredded or cut into smaller pieces)
Roll into burrito (tuck sides in first, then roll)
Put into oven for 10 minutes to allow cheese to melt and tortilla to crisp.
