Recipe Rehab - Bacon Ranch Chicken Burrito

Mexican dishes make delicious meals but are loaded with fat and calories. So if a burrito is what you’re craving, Virtua Nutrition suggests this Recipe Rehab version that won’t pack on the pounds.

Ingredients

  • 1 slice center-cut bacon or turkey bacon 
  • 3 oz. raw boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces 
  • 1 tsp. lime juice 
  • 1/8 tsp. salt-free seasoning mix 
  • 1 wedge light creamy cheese 
  • 1/4 tsp. ranch dressing/dip seasoning mix 
  • 1/2 oz. (about 1 tbsp.) mashed avocado 
  • 1/2 tsp. hot sauce 
  • 1 medium-large high-fiber flour tortilla with 110 calories or less
  • 1/2 cup shredded lettuce 
  • 1/4 cup chopped tomato 
  • 2 tbsp. chopped onion


Directions 

  • Cook bacon until crispy, either in a skillet over medium heat or on a microwave-safe plate in the microwave.  

  • Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Add chicken, and top with lime juice and salt-free seasoning. Cook and stir for about 4 minutes, until cooked through. 

  • To make the sauce, in a small bowl, combine ranch seasoning with cheese wedge. Stir until smooth and well mixed. Add avocado and chipotle sauce, and stir until uniform. 

  • Microwave tortilla on a microwave-safe plate for 15 seconds, or until warm. 

  • Spread sauce down the middle of the tortilla, and top with lettuce, chicken, tomato, and onion. Chop or crumble bacon, and layer over the onion. 

  • Wrap tortilla up by first folding in one side and then tightly rolling it up from the bottom. (Or fold in both sides, burrito style.)
