    To assemble burritos, spread 1/4 cup of the beans horizontally across the bottom third of a warm tortilla, leaving room on bottom and sides to fold. Layer with heaping 2/3 cup of the chicken, 2 tablespoons of the cheese, 1 tablespoon of the pico, and 2 tablespoons of the avocado.

    To roll burrito, turn tortilla so that filling side is closest to you. Grasp tortilla at 8 o’clock and 4 o’clock position and fold in to cover ends of filling, forming a ‘v’ at the bottom of the tortilla. Then, fold up bottom of tortilla over topping and tuck underneath to secure. Fold in sides of tortilla (9 o’clock and 3 o’clock positions) to form a pleat, then continue to roll from the bottom up, tucking in sides as you go. Serve with extra Cholula Hot Sauce!
