20 min


  • Agave Chicken
  • 1/2 cup Cholula® Original Hot Sauce
  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 2 tbsp orange juice
  • 2 tbsp agave nectar
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • Ultimate Burritos
  • 1 1/4 cups warm black beans or hot cooked rice, divided
  • 5 burrito size (10-inch) flour tortillas, warmed
  • 10 tbsps shredded Mexican cheese blend, divided
  • 5 tbsp fresh pico de gallo, divided
  • 10 tbsp chopped avocado, divided


  • 1 For the Chicken, mix Hot Sauce, lime juice, orange juice, agave, cilantro and salt in small bowl until well blended. Reserve 1/4 cup marinade for basting.
  • 2 Place chicken in large resealable bag or glass dish. Add remaining marinade; turn to coat well. Refrigerate 30 minutes, or longer for more flavor. Remove chicken from marinade. Discard any remaining marinade.
  • 3 Grill over medium heat 6 to 8 minutes per side or until chicken is cooked through, basting with reserved marinade during the last few minutes of grilling. Transfer chicken to clean cutting board. Let rest 5 minutes. Chop into bite-size pieces.
  • 4 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.
  • 5 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!
