BBQ Chicken & Black Bean Burrito

Recipe courtesy of Jillian Michaels’ Ripped in 30 meal plan

Now that summer and beach season is right around the corner (Yay), I am going to be focusing more on healthy, low-calorie dishes so I (you) can enjoy a tasty meal without the guilt. I just made this recipe for the first time tonight, and am happy to report that it is delicious! I’ve made a few alterations, which I’ll include along with the original recipe.

~ Makes 4 servings


  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 3/4 lb skinless, boneless organic chicken breast, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/3 cup low-sodium barbeque sauce
  • 15 oz (1 can) low-sodium black beans, rinsed & drained
  • 1/2 cup (2 oz) organic reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese, shredded (I used 1/4 cup)
  • 4 Ezekiel 4:9 sprouted grain tortillas (or substitute Mission Life Balance whole wheat tortillas)
  • 1/4 cup organic nonfat plain Greek yogurt (or substitute organic nonfat honey Greek yogurt)
  • 2 tsp salsa (optional)


  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  2. Add chicken, onion & garlic; cook 8-10 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked, stirring constantly.
  3. Stir in barbeque sauce & beans.
  4. Sprinkle with cheese; cook for 5-10 minutes or until thoroughly heated. (I recommend cooking for at least 10 minutes so the flavors blend well)
  5. Warm tortillas in a separate skillet until lightly brown. (You can skip this step if your tortillas are at room temperature)
  6. Spoon about 1/2 cup chicken mixture down the center of each tortilla; top each with 1 tbsp Greek yogurt, and roll up.
  7. Add a little salsa to the top of the rolled up tortilla and/or put on the side. (optional)
