Southwest Chicken Burritos

With back to school (and all the other activities) back in swing, I’m sure most moms feel like they are living in their cars, shuffling kids around from place to place. Finding time to cook seems impossible so I thought I’d share an old favorite that a friend of mine shared with me years ago. It’s healthy, easy and you can make a big batch in advance to whip up for a quick lunch or dinner. ⠀
