Build your own Burrito Bar

This is a super yummy burrito bar recipe. Below you will find the recipe for all the components of the burritos, adding in all the extra spices and such make this so good! Once you make the following recipes, you will "build" your burrito as you would like! Enjoy! P.S. Read the entire recipe first (including all toppings listed at the bottom) so you make sure you buy all needed ingredients. There is a lot to it, but well worth the extra work! These flavors are so good together! I make up the sour cream and salsa mixtures earlier in the day and put in the fridge. The black beans can be made ahead of time, and then just re-heated before serving to cut down on prep time as well!

Black Bean Filling:
Using a small food processor or chopper, combine the following and chop:
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded
1 clove garlic
1/2 small onion
In a deep skillet pan, put 1 T of olive oil and saute mixture for 2 or 3 min. Then add to the pan:

2 cans black beans, drained slightly
1 tsp or so of Cayenne Pepper sauce
Coarse salt

Reduce heat to low and simmer.

Chop and set aside:
1 clove garlic
1 red bell pepper

In skillet pan, add:
1 T olive oil
3/4 - 1 lb chicken breast tenders, diced
Coarse salt
Cook chicken in oil until lightly brown. Add garlic and peppers and saute another 5-10 min. until chicken is done.

Roasted Salsa:
4 Roma Tomatoes
1 jalepeno pepper, seeded
1 small onion, peeled and cut into 3-4 thick slices
Cilantro Leaves (we leave this out, cilantro is yucky in my opinion :)

Heat a skillet pan over high heat. Add whole tomatoes, jalapeno, skin side down, and onions. Allow the tomatoes, pepper and onions to char on all sides. Once all blackened, add to a food processor and pulse grind the salsa with cilantro and salt.

Green Onion Lime Sour Cream:
1 container sour cream (16 oz)
1 lime, juiced and zested
2-3 green onions, sliced
Combine all into a food processor and process until smooth. Pour back into sour cream container and let sit in fridge until ready to eat.

Warm tortillas over stove top. Make your burrito using the following:
Black bean mixture
Roasted Salsa
Sour Cream mixture
Romaine Lettuce
Smoked white cheddar cheese, shredded
Pepper Jack cheese, shredded
Sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded

Serve with Rice on side (see Stacie's Spanish rice recipe)
