  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

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 for another 2 to 3 minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked. Season with salt and pepper.

  4. Divide the chicken mixture and fresh spinach between the tortillas. Add beans, rice and cheese as desired. Fold the ends of the tortilla over the meat and then roll the burritos up lengthwise.

  5. Serve with salsa, guacamole and sour cream.
