#Dairyfree Chicken Burritos {#recipe}

A couple of posts ago I talked about our new found affinity with roast chicken.  Roast chicken, the easy no fuzz dinner that's economical as  - at least in this house - it yields at least two different meals, chicken pot pie, chicken enchiladas, chicken soup…and burritos.

I know that umpteend different ways to make burritos can easily be found on the web however most use lots of cheese.  The shredded cheese surely can easily be swapped out with vegan shreds but not everyone in this house - that would be Ron - is a fan so something different was needed.  So yes, here is yet another Chicken Burrito one that is dairyfree and as all burritos should be fuzz free, plus delicious as in no leftovers ;).  These have a jerk flavor as some delicious jerk hot sauce by Pirate Johnny's which  I recently received was added. Let me tell you so that the jerk hot sauce along with the cilantro give these burritos their fantastic flavor.  Yes, I know the pictures do not really show just how good they are..better pictures were just not in the cards.
