  • Total Time 2 Hours 35 Minutes
  • Prep Time 35 Minutes
  • Servings 2
  • Ingredients 9


  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch strips
  • 1 red or yellow bell pepper, seeded, cut into rings
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced, separated into rings
  • 4 Old El Paso™ flour tortillas for burritos (8 inch; from 11-oz package)


Step 1 In medium bowl, mix chili powder, cumin, salt, garlic and lime juice. Add chicken, bell pepper and onion; stir to coat. Cover bowl; refrigerate at least 2 hours to marinate, turning once.

Step 2 Heat gas or charcoal grill. Cut 2 (18x12-inch) sheets of heavy-duty foil. Remove chicken and vegetables from marinade; discard marinade. Place half of chicken and vegetables on center of each sheet. Bring up 2 sides of foil so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again, allowing space for heat circulation and expansion. Fold other sides to seal. Cut another sheet of foil; wrap tortillas securely in foil.

Step 3 Place packets on grill over medium heat. Cook chicken and vegetables 10 to 15 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center and vegetables are crisp-tender. Cook tortillas 2 to 3 minutes or until warm. Open foil carefully to allow hot steam to escape.

Step 4 Serve each chicken and vegetable packet with 2 tortillas. If desired, top tortillas with shredded lettuce, sour cream, guacamole, shredded cheese and salsa.
