These Chicken and Sweet Potato California Burritos are hearty, flavorful, easy to make and stuffed with grilled chicken, crunchy sweet potato fries, pepper jack cheese, and fresh pico. Make ahead and freeze, or make fresh and enjoy! This burrito is full of wholesome, farm to table ingredients that your whole family will love.
Have you heard of a California burrito before? I grew up in Southern California, and when you would visit a local Mexican food restaurant and order a burrito you always had the option of getting it California style, which basically means there are french fries inside the burrito. Traditionally these California style burritos are carne asada beef and russet potato fry filled, but for today’s recipe I wanted to offer a lighter version that is quick, easy, and wholesome. So these burritos have antibiotic free, hormone free, grilled chicken strips, and all natural sweet potato fries, along with fresh pico, sweet mini peppers, and some pepper jack cheese.
Getting these easy and super tasty burritos is a matter of starting with simple but wholesome ingredients. I never have time to make everything 100% from scratch, which is why I love products like Alexia® Sweet Potato Fries and NatureRaised Farms® Grilled Chicken Breast Strips because they are all-natural, from the farm to your family’s dinner plate. I don’t have to pre-cook my chicken, or chop up sweet potatoes to get the flavors I want in these burritos, and because I can keep them in my freezer, I can throw a meal like this together in a matter of minutes any day of the week. In fact, I will show you just how easy it really is:
Simple, right? And so flavorful. You don’t even need to add heavy sauces, or extra ingredients to get a fresh tasting and yummy meal.
Another thing I absolutely love about this recipe is you can make it ahead and freeze the burritos. My husband travels a lot, and so to help him eat a wholesome diet while on the road, I make individually portioned freezer friendly meals so he can take them in a lunchbox and heat them wherever he is. These burritos are awesome for that. Just assemble, wrap in foil, pop in a freezer bag, and there you have it. When you want them, just bake from frozen (25-35 minutes at 375 degrees), or let defrost and bake (10-15 minutes at 350 degrees).
After you bake them to make the cheese all melty, you just have to top with your favorite toppings. For me it is california avocados. Always avocados.
Not only are these burritos tasty and delicious, but you can save money on them. There is a 15% Cartwheel Savings on both NatureRaised Farms® frozen chicken and Alexia® frozen products that are available with the purchase of goods at Target.
