Black Bean Chicken Burritos Recipe

Ingredients :
1 pound ground chicken
1 small green pepper, chopped
1 small sweet red pepper, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can (10 ounces) diced tomatoes and green chiles
1 cup fresh or frozen corn
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon pepper
8 flour tortillas (8 inches)
Sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese, shredded lettuce and fresh cilantro leaves, optional

In a large nonstick skillet, cook chicken over medium-high heat until no longer pink, breaking into crumbles, 4-6 minutes; drain and remove from skillet.
In the same skillet, saute peppers and onion in oil until lightly browned and crisp-tender, 2-4 minutes. Add jalapeno pepper and garlic; saute 1 minute longer. Stir in beans, tomatoes, corn, seasonings and chicken. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until liquid is evaporated, about 5 minutes. Serve in tortillas, with optional toppings as desired.

Test Kitchen tips :
This recipe is easy to adapt to whatever ingredients kids (and adults) most enjoy.
Leave the seeds in the jalapeno pepper for extra heat.
