How to make this recipe

  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in the onions and garlic. Cook for about 2 minutes or until the onions are soft.

  2. Add the chicken and cook until lightly browned and nearly cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes.

  3. Stir in the Worcestershire sauce, lime juice, smoked paprika and cumin. Cook the chicken for another 2 to 3 minutes or until tender. Season with salt and pepper.

  4. Divide the chicken mixture and cooked quinoa between the tortillas. Add beans and cheese, if desired. Fold the ends of the tortilla over the meat then roll the burritos up lengthwise. Serve with salsa, guacamole and sour cream.
