Looking for quick and easy dinner recipes? This Chicken Avocado Burritos come together with just 15 min prep! If you are in a big hurry to prepare a beautiful lunch or dinner, maybe it’s time for you to try the healthy and easy Chicken Avocado Burritos. I consider this a real „trick up my sleeve“ for situations like this just like this Chicken Avocado Salad Roll Ups .
You know that I rarely put up recipes for savory dishes. When I started with the blogging story, the intention was for this to be a classic baking blog. But, there are a few savory dishes which simply had to have their place on this blog along with all the desserts. Those are dishes that my family members and I simply love and it is very hard for me not to leave a recording with a few photos and a short post on the blog
Well, exactly one of those recipes is Chicken Avocado Burritos. I really love tortillas and I often prepare them with all sorts of fillings. But, lately, tortillas have become my „joker“ dish when I have really little time for preparation. Of course, my husband helps me wholeheartedly in decisions like this because he simply adores tortillas and burritos.
„Hmm, I have only half an hour to make something quickly. Got any ideas? “ I would often ask my husband in situations like that.
„Well make something with your tortillas “ would be one of the most frequent answer.
Yummy!!! What is even better for this dish is that you can serve it for lunch and also for dinner. Not rarely, my husband would devour what was left of the burritos as a snack.
The only question in that moment is which of the numerous burrito variations to prepare. One of my favorite tortilla combinations is with fried chicken and avocado. Just Imagine: fried chicken, sliced avocado, grated mozzarella cheese and cilantro. Really tasty and healthy as well. You cut all that into little pieces, fold it into a tortilla coated with sour cream, and fry it in a pan for a few minutes. And here it is on the table in front of you, the very tasty Chicken Avocado Burritos!
And so if you want to make your life in the kitchen a little easier and have a very tasty dish, this Mexican Chicken Avocado Burritos might just be the solution for you.

[…] I made these Chicken Avocado Burritos last night and they were amazing! Topped with some salsa and a spoonful of sour cream, they are […]
These were fabulous, even the husband, who doesn’t think he likes sour cream loved them. A bit of salsa on the top was the perfect finish. Thanks for posting an easy, delicious receipt.
I am wondering if they freeze well? Thanks!
Hi Mandi, I didn’t try so i can’t help you with that.
I was wondering the same thing. I’m having my third baby in April and am looking for healthy foods for myself to freeze for when after baby gets here.
From some quick research online, I think the avocado would freeze ok. Might work better to possibly puree the avocado(?) and use it as a spread on the wrap and then freeze. All the other ingredients are definitely freezable. I would probably defrost the whole burrito first before straight re-heating. I haven’t tried this to say whether it will work or not, but worth a try.
I freeze avocados all the time. Should work well. Go for it!
These would freeze really well. Just remember when you are reheating then I’m the microwave to wrap them in a DAMP paper towel when cooking them. It will stop the tortillas from getting rock hard and it will help the burrito to cook all the way through
They probably do freeze well. I freeze my burritos and they do well! Mine don’t have avocado in them, but why not…you can freeze avocado sliced in half, so I say go for it! This recipe looks wonderful! I will need to try it.
These are the most amazing burritos I have ever made.
Thanks Cinthia 🙂
I made this for dinner tonight it is very delicious!
will keep it in my recipe box. only change i made was used mayo instead of sour cream and mashed it with avocado and cilantro. So good!!
I make a couple changes; I leave out the sour cream and use 1/2 avacado per burrito. Rotisserie chicken, avocado, cheese (pepper jack to mix it up), cilantro, and I spray with Pam to cook. So easy, it’s a go to whenever I need an easy dinner.
That sounds amazing AND easy! Thanks for that tip! I cannot wait to try it. 🙂
Do these re-heat well? Was thinking of making them and then taking them for lunch everyday. LOOK SO GOOD!
Hi Lori, I’m sorry but I really can’t help you because I did not try to re-heat them.
These do reheat really well. I make a big batch, freeze them, then reheat them at work for lunch!
I was just wondering if I could use small tortillas instead, this recipe looks great!
[…] If you have only 30 minutes and you want to make a savory dinner, the chicken avocado burritos recipe is what you need! Everybody loves tortillas and burritos so you can be sure that this healthy recipe will be much appreciated, moreover this recipe is super cheap as all you need is minced chicken, avocados, cheese and tortillas. You can find full instructions and ingredients for the recipe on omgchocolatedesserts.com […]
its looks, easy and quick to serve it. I will give it a try
this is great, I will make them in the evening, put them in my lunch box and throw them in a pan at the office to have a great work lunch 🙂 Chicken/Salsa would also be worth a try. Or peppers, salad, cheese … so many ideas!!
I made these into quesadillas. My family loved them. Thanks for sharing.
Delicious! I added more cheese (Mexican blend) more avocado, a bit of low-salt chicken broth to the mixture, and used no sour cream. It was great!!
Made these last week – delicious! The cilantro and the mustard really make the recipe. They froze well too – I froze them pre-pan frying, then pulled them out the night before to thaw in the fridge. Worked great. Froze like a dream. I’ve tried baking them and frying them post-freezing, and both have worked well. Thanks for the recipe!
Thanks Emily 🙂
You could freeze them without the avocado and then just top with fresh avocado when you are ready to eat.
This was so easy I hesitated but desperate time shortage made me a believer…awesome stuff
When I set out to make this recipe I expected it to be delicious and it blew my expectations out of the water. Absolutely delicious. I used 4 large chicken breasts, 3 avocados, 4 cups of Mexican cheese and cilantro. So far I’ve made 4 good sized burritos, and I have leftover filling. I’m full and can’t wait to load up another tortilla tomorrow!! Absolutely amazing!!

[…] I’ve never actually rolled a burrito in my life until now. (I always figured I’d have a hard time because I would want to over-stuff it, so meh.) Hope you enjoy these though! Recipe adapted from here! […]

Do you have the calories per serving info?
You can very easily figure this out… 🙂
It depends on what brands of stuff you use. When I calculated it up it was around 300-350 per burrito but I used low carb tortillas, reduced fat mozzerella, and fat free sour cream.
Hi, these look great can’t wait to make them ! What kind of mustard did you use in this recipe. Thanks
Hi Niki, use classic yellow mustard or Dijon mustard.
Oh my goodness, my mom and I just whipped these up and they were DELICIOUS!! Would have never thought about mustard on chicken… but it was so so good! Such fresh ingredients and so easy to make! (We also added in freshly squeezed lime juice into the mixture just for fun) We made a few extras and put them in the freezer so that we can take them for our lunches this week! 🙂 Will definitely be making again. Yummy!
This looks so good, so I gave it a try tonight. It was very bland, even though I added seasonings to the chicken as it cooked (garlic, onion powder, cumin and chili powder). I also shook a little lemon juice and salt on the avocados. Still bland and unexciting. I won’t be making this again.
[…] Chicken Avocado Burritos […]
I love your site, and all the yummy recipes and look very forward to them, for some reason lately I haven’t been receiving any e-mails from your site can you please check and correct the issue if any, miss seeing your goodies!!!
This recipe sounds good but, you really should proofread your step-by-step instructions. You have mistakes that I think if you proof read you would have found them.
Can anyone provide the nutrition per serving or WW+ points?
Can you please provide nutrition or WW+ for this recipe? Thanks!
Hi Natosha, I’m sorry, I can’t provide you that info.
WW points – 14 Figured without the cilantro
Made them today for dinner…Awesome!
[…] PM – We sit down for dinner. These burritos are on the menu for the […]
What sides do you make with this? I’ve already made rice, beans, and corn last night 🙁
Hi Kelly, I usually make some fresh salad, but you can serve what ever you like with chicken.
Because this is so calorie dense and I was eating it for lunch I ate it with pineapple rings as my side.
[…] Chicken Avocado Burritos via OMG Chocolate Desserts […]
I made these tonight and also made some changes. I used chicken fajita seasoning while letting the chicken boil, shredded iceberg lettuce, queso fresco “la vaquita” brand for fresher flavor, and instead of cilantro I used dices yellow raw onion. AMAZING!!!
What you made was an entirely different recipe.
I am considering making this recipe for myself and my parents this weekend. I was wondering if the mustard was necessary or just a taste preference? I personally do not prefer it and I am wondering if removing the mustard would affect the recipe? Thank you! I am excited to make this!
Hi Alysha, you can skip the mustard, although it doesn’t tastes too much in this recipe.
Thanks for a wonderful alternative to typical Mexican fare!! Due to diet restrictions, I can no longer eat most of what goes into the usual burritos (tomatoes, onions, spices….) and I miss them. While this will taste a bit bland to most folks, it’s a great alternative – especially for kids who don’t like spicy. Thanks!!
Thanks Mari 🙂
YUM. I made these tonight and they were delicious. I had to make some modifications because of what I had on hand, but followed the basics. Even my PICKY husband and toddlers liked them.
-I used some pre-cooked chicken I’d already shredded. I sautéed some sweet peppers first, then added the cold chicken and mustard, and also one slice of cold bacon I’d cooked earlier in the day. I also added a few halved cherry tomatoes.
-I used Cilantro paste instead of fresh cilantro.
-I only had one tortilla, so I scooped the inside out of a loaf of French bread, loaded up the chicken mixture in it, sprinkled a little more cheese on top, and baked it at 350 degrees F until the cheese melted. I also followed the directions to make the one burrito I had on hand. My husband said both options were really good.
[…] Dinner Idea: Chicken Avocado Burritos. Anything + Avocados = Happy […]
Love this – what a great use of avocados when they are in season. Have made it multiple times and now I double the avocado and cilantro and use my own seasoning blend on the chicken – no mustard (personal taste). It’s a fantastic recipe as is, but also gives you a great jumping off point for personal creativity. Thank you.
my husband despises cilantro…is there another ingredient you can recommend to substitute? thank you
Hi Beth, you can skip cilantro, add any seasoning you like.

I used non fat Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. Delicious!
I used this recipe to base my dinner off tonight. I made some changes. I used a rotisserie chicken and medium cheddar. Sauteed it in 2 tablespoons lime juice. Added a teaspoon of cumin. Used 2 tablespoons dried cilantro, love it. Used small tortillas, because that’s what I have on hand to cut down my carb intake. Just rolled them with the end open and fried in Pam. I am cutting down my food intake too, but enjoyed these so much I ate 2. Which isn’t my usual. Will deal with the guilt of “over eating”. I know it wasn’t really but I recently lost 25 lbs. By eating smaller portions. Need to lose 25 more to get myself down to a size 10. That’s why I say guilt.
Just made this for dinner and followed the directions exactly… it was delicious!!! Thank you for our new go to burritos! 🙂
I can’t wait to try these, they look amazing! How about a recipe for the shells?
Came across this recipe via Pinterest. My fiancé and I Tried it this evening, swapped in wholemeal seeded tortillas and went easy on the cheese to lower the kcal. Amazeballs!
[…] 1) Chicken Avacado Burritos […]
I made these yesterday for my fiancé and myself, and WOW! They were ridiculous! I didn’t use as much cilantro, went light on the sour cream, and used shredded colby jack AND mozzarella. I will definitely be making these again soon! Thanks for the recipe!
love the recipe but HATE all the ads on this site! Not sure I will visit the site again there were so many ads!
[…] Recipe from OMG Chocolate Desserts. […]
Made these for dinner and they were WONDERFUL! Husband and I both loved them. Highly recommend!
Thank you so much for this amazing recipe! Made these for lunch today….love, love, love!! So yummy and filling. I think next time I’ll make a monster batch to freeze.
For those requesting nutrition info….use a calorie calculator for recipes. I never trust the calories listed on websites, etc., as they are made based on the specific ingredients and brand the author used. I use the Lose it app, but there are many out there. But to give you an estimate: I used one chicken breast vs two, subbed Greek yogurt for the sour cream, and my tortillas were 105 calories each (these vary widely) and had a total of approximately 305 delicious, healthy calories each.
This looks great! I am so going to try this. I’m thinking of adding some mango and a little bit of chili to this – I can imagine that would taste amazing.
[…] Chicken Avocado Burritos: Mmmmm. […]
This sounds really quick and tasty! Just one question: Will the frying process also heat the avocado? Cause I´m not very fond of heated avocado. It always turns out somewhat bitter …
Hi Janne, it won’t heat to much for couple of minutes on medium-high heat.
Amazing!!!!!! Used Greek yogurt as a sour cream substitute to make it a bit healthier.
Great recipe! I used Greek Yogurt instead of sour cream, pulled pork that I made in the crockpot, slices of Swiss cheese and added lemon juice. SO good. Thank you for sharing
[…] via Oh My God Chocolate Desserts […]
These sound wonderful! However, my husband doesn’t like sour cream or mayo. Any suggestion for a substitute?
Hi Ruth, maybe you could use greek yogurt, many people said that they used it as a substitute in this recipe.
Try it with pork tenderloin instead of chicken….awesome
[…] Chicken Avocado Burritos via Oh My God Chocolate Desserts […]
If you can’t eat mustard what can you use in place of it.
Hi Beverly, you can just skip it.
OMG – this was FANTASTIC!!! I skipped the mustard and seasoned the chicken with cumin and smoked paprika. I used a combo of mozzarella and cheddar cheeses. Made a batch of salsa to have on the side with chips, but it was good on the burrito too. Hubby thought it was tasty as well. Will definitely be making these again.
These look wonderful! What brand of tortilla did you use for this recipe?
I Michelle, i’m sorry but I can not remember what brand is it.
LOVED THESE! I was looking or a quick and easy dinner for me + my boyfriend last night and came across this recipe on pinterest. I put extra dijon mustard on the chicken while it cooked (probably about 4 Tsp) and it really gave the chicken a great flavor. I also noticed that there was a mustard kind of sauce in the pan after cooking the chicken so I threw some of that in with the avocado/chicken mixture.
We also subbed sour cream for greek yogurt that we mixed with lime juice and lime zest. It’s our go-to sub for any kind of creamy sauce. I definitely recommend trying it!! This burrito is definitely a new quick and easy favorite for me!! 🙂
made this for my domino girls tonight with shrimp instead of chicken. It was awesome! Thank you!
[…] This is a new family favorite that I found on Pinterest. What I like is that these burritos are different that traditional burritos that are often loaded with beef and beans. The avocado adds excellent flavor, and I usually add extra mozzarella cheese inside. When I make it I slightly change the recipe to make the burritos smaller and serve more. I buy fajita sized tortillas (8-10 in a pack), and I fill the tortillas with less mixture. I still usually have left over mixture at the end. Here is where you can find the recipe for Chicken Avocado Burritos. […]
Made this tonight and it was a hit. Hubby didn’t care for the avocado so next time I will know not to add it to his burrito. I will be making them again!
Hi do you cook the chicken (grill, oven) before putting in the frying pan?
Hi Chelsea,grill the chicken in the frying pan.
ok thanks, so you put raw chicken in the frying pan and only cook about 10 min?
More than 10 minutes, roast 5 minutes one side then 5 minutes on other side , then add just a little water and continue cooking as needed (it depends on how big chicken breasts are)
These were very good! I used leftover rotisserie chicken and it was a big hit. Even the picky 9 yr old ate all of hers.
Thanks alot for the recipe! I earned my dad’s applause for this, and he is a chef . I changed a couple things though, instead of cilantro I used parsley and I added a little bit of rice to make it bigger.Again, great recipe and super easy too!
OMG! A restaurant in Napa has something very similar. I’m so excited to have a recipe for this! Thanks 🙂

I’ve made these twice now! They are perfect for a weeknight meal as i usually use a rotisserie chicken! I leave out the sour cream and let people add it after to their preference. I also add some garlic to the avocados before mixing, it just gives them a bit more flavor. And the hubby LOVES them! They’re also great cold for lunch the next day when there happen to be leftovers!!
Absolutely Delicious! Thank you for sharing this recipe. My husband has requested these once a week! To save time, I heat up coated chicken from Costco so its nice and crispy. I thought they would be bland with the lack of spices but these pack full flavor and are addictive. They are great for dinner, and lunch the next day but the avo’s don’t last longer than that which is okay because these get eaten very quickly!
[…] one was far from perfect. My family really likes avocado, so I added more than the recipe called for, and as a result the burritos were mushy and a bit overstuffed. They were still edible, […]
Hello…delicious but I wasn’t happy with the tortillas I bought…yours look so light and flaky and delicious in your picture. Did you make these from scratch or can you please share the brand you buy.
Thank you so much…I really appreciate it.

Thank you very much! I didn’t have at the moment big flour tortillas so I used regular ones, instead of burritos tacos and they turned out delicious!
I’m not sure if it is because of my altitude being over 6,000 ft or what, but the cooking time for the chicken was not sufficient. I cubed the chicken and finished it off in the broiler for 2 mins on each side. Then, cooking the burritos for 2 mins on each side was entirely too long, as they burnt to a crisp. So instead of 2 mins I cooked them for 10 secs on each side, thus achieving that nice golden brown texture.
I add a jalapeño and some shrimp to the mix it was awesome.. Thank you for the recipe..
I added line for more flavor. My husband and son loved it!
thank very much …very useful for me your tipps
I will try next time
Good but bland for sure. Needs spice,
Mustard? Interesting…I have everything but the cilantro so I’m going to give these a try tonight. (My cilantro went to seed) 🙁
Hi, these look so GOOD! I will have to make them sometime soon. 🙂
Always tasty and easy to make.This has to be the one recipe I don’t have too look up every time I make it. I like to add red pepper (softened when I cook the chicken) and spinach. You can’t even taste the spinach so win win!
Thanks Nicola 🙂

Hello and thank you for sharing your recipe it looks delicious. I am a little confused however because at the top of the directions it says to use shredded chicken and then in the lower directions it says cook the chicken as a whole piece then to slice into spears or something close to that.

Hi Shelly thanks for pointing that. But you can use any kind of chicken, leftovers, fresh baked chicken breast, you can shred it with fork or slice with the knife in thin strings.
