Chicken mushrooms ranch burritos


This was one of those meals where I knew I had chicken for dinner and that was about it. I went through about 14 things to make in my head and decided to just open the cabinet and go. This is what I came up with.

5 boneless skinless chicken thighs (or 3 breasts)
2.5 tbsp ranch powder (see below)
.5 tbsp garlic powder
1 tsp pepper
2 cups mushrooms
.5 cup yellow onion diced
olive oil for pan
3 cups shredded Monteray Jack Cheese (Pepperjack would be fun too)
3 flour tortillas
6 tbsp mayonnaise (I KNOW I KNOW BUT....)
1 cup good ranch dressing

Preheat oven to 350. Season chicken with ranch, garlic powder and pepper. Place the chicken in a skillet over medium heat. Brown on both sides and add mushrooms and onions. Increase heat to medium high and cook until mushrooms and onions are soft and chicken is done. Remove chicken from pan and slice into bite size pieces. Place tortillas flat and divide 2/3 cheese between the three tortillas. Divide your chicken mushroom mixture between the three tortillas and top with mayonnaise. Fold in both ends and wrap. Place seam side down on baking sheet. Bake until tortilla begins to brown. Top with remaining cheese and bake until bubbly and melted. If you want to get fancy you can drizzle the ranch over the top. I just put it in bowls for everyone to tip in. Husband loved this meal.

I know your thinking mayo in a wrap that is heated BUT DUDE YOU NEED TO TRY IT. You can leave it out if you're a wimp though!




Last month someone bitched because I said that I use ranch powder "like" Hidden Valley. I don't actually use Hidden Valley because I hate it. I use this stuff:

I got it at a craft fair one year and fell in love. The recipe for ranch dressing has ruined me for life and no ranch will ever compare to this stuff. You make it with buttermilk and oh my fuck. You can mix it with sour cream for the craziest low fat dip EVER IN THE WORLD, or you can put that on potatoes and just die from goodness. So. When I refer to ranch dressing this is what I'm talking about. If you are interested in having a mouth orgasm, tasting the best home made ranch ever or knocking your potato socks off you can order this here:
