Chicken and Avocado Ranch Burritos — Damn Delicious

Chicken and Avocado Ranch Burritos

These come together with just 15 min prep! You can also make this ahead of time and bake right before serving. SO EASY!

Living in Los Angeles for the last 16 years, it’s no surprise that I love a good burrito. And when I say a good burrito, I mean one of those burritos from a street vendor – the ones where they pile on the cheese, the sour cream and the avocado.

So that’s exactly what we have here – in moderation. Except let’s pile on the avocado and Ranch dressing while we’re at it. You always need a good dosage of Ranch dressing in a burrito, right?

And since it’s Memorial Day and all, go ahead and serve this up with a pitcher of margaritas.

Chicken and Avocado Ranch Burritos

Yield: 4 servings

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

These come together with just 15 min prep! You can also make this ahead of time and bake right before serving. SO EASY!

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch chunks*
  • 1 (1.25-ounce) package taco seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 burrito-size flour tortillas, 10 inches each
  • 2 avocados, halved, peeled, seeded and diced
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup Ranch dressing
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves

Directions:

  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Season chicken thighs with taco seasoning. Add chicken to the skillet and cook until golden, about 3-4 minutes; set aside.
  2. Heat tortillas according to package instructions.
  3. Working one at a time, place chicken, avocado, cheese, sour cream, Ranch and cilantro in the center of each tortilla. Bring the bottom edge of the tortilla tightly over the filling, folding in the sides. Continue rolling until the top of the tortilla is reached. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
  4. Heat a grill pan over medium high heat. Add burritos and cook, pressing gently with a spatula, about 3-4 minutes per side, or until golden brown and the cheese has melted.*
  5. Serve immediately.

*Boneless, skinless chicken breasts can be substituted.

*This can also be baked at 375 degrees F until heated through, about 15-18 minutes.

These sound incredible! Gorgeous pics too . . .

You can never have too much Ranch and avocado. LOVE this burrito..it looks incredible!

I’m going to make these for dinner soon! We love anything bacon and ranch, so this would be perfect for an easy weeknight dinner.

Can I just say that I absolutely love your blog! Your food turns out so delicious all the time. Your my favorite blogger. My parents never taught me how to cook and you have helped me a lot. I’ve learned how to not be so scared in the kitchen anymore. And thanks to you my husband and kids love me even more, or the food atleast. Thank you Chungah…I love you!

This looks so yummy, as always. Thanks, must give it a try.

AMAZING. I make for dinner last night. I love all the flavors!. THANK YOU! I told everyone about this recipe!
Thanks again for sharing

This looks so delicious and I love the pictures of the ingredients and the preparation.
and love the CHICKEN AND AVOCADO recipes so far! thank you so much for this delicious recipe blog

When you prepare ahead of time, won’t it be soggy by the time you grill it, after you’ve already added the sour cream and ranch ? Want to make sure I get it right. I’m planning to make it tomorrow for last-minute guests and would rather do-ahead! Thanks so much 🙂

Great question! If you pack in the sour cream and Ranch in between the ingredients, you can avoid any kind of sogginess.

This looks damn delicious! Thanks for recipe

Hey Chungah,
Can you freeze the pre-assembled burritos?

Unfortunately, I cannot answer this with certainty as I have never tried freezing this myself – there were no leftovers left to freeze! Please use your best judgment for freezing and reheating.

Damndelicious.net is my favorite ! We loved this recipe! I just added this to our list of your
recipes to make over and over! Thanks so much!

Made these tonight. They are outstanding. We ended up making 8 but I used a bit more than one lb of chicken.
Great recipe!!

I made this for dinner tonight and they were so great! My 2 year (shockingly) picked her half of burrito over her beloved mac and cheese.

Tried this recipe last weekend, the result was absolutely DELICIOUS. Can’t wait to make these again very soon! Combining chicken and avocado is my new favourite thing, I would love to see even more recipes like that!

These came out amazing, I used white cheddar and added black beans – the beans were a great touch. My two teenagers were very happy 🙂

Thank you for including the nutritional facts on the post. Never know how healthy a recipe really is.

These look amazing..

Tried these tonight; added black beans, kidney beans and onion to the chicken. The whole family loved them – a new favorite! Thanks for a great recipe! 🙂

Not a fan of ranch dressing but I’m going to try these and improvise

I tried this last week for my family and I … since my body movement is limited due to a broken ankle , this was perfect! Did not take long at all and my family loved it. One thing I did add to it was bacon and omg it was DELICIOUS

Made this last night and it was a success! So easy & so much flavour! My husband and brother in law loved it ! Thanks!

Instead of slicing the avocado, I made it into guacamole and it was delicious!

I liked the idea of using my panini press to grill the burritos. I made the recipe as written, but sub’d vegetarian chicken strips. Next time, I’ll use salsa instead of ranch dressing for a more authentic taste.

So the calorie count is 759. Whoa that’s a lot.

I have been using so many of your recipes. They are delicious (damn delicious!) and I have been using them on my website. The photography is gorgeous as well.

What kind of taco seasoning would y’all recommend ?!

Ortega is good but I have even substituted with chili or fajita seasoning based on whatever I had in the cupboard at the time. Just add as much to your liking.

Thanks for the recipe. IT WAS DELICIOUS. I didn’t change a couple minor things. We used whole wheat tortillas. Instead of using sour cream and ranch dressing, I put dry ranch seasoning mix in plain greek yogurt. Also, I put the taco seasoning mix on the chicken (we used chicken breasts) after I cooked it. I did put a small amt of olive oil on the outside of the rolled up burrito and grilled it in a regular pan. We will definitely be making this again and again. Thank you!

*DID change…… I mean…..Oops!

I think that there is way too much salt in this recipe. For healthier version I would suggest eliminating the taco seasoning and make your own with less sodium. Also, you can shave calories by omitting sour cream. Otherwise it sounds fabulous.

They were a hit with my boys. Seconds were a must! I will try grilling the wrapped burritos to melt the cheese next time.

Yum, that’s a good idea. Thanks for sharing Celeste!

I consider myself a pretty terrible cook so I’m always looking for easy recipes that I can’t mess up. These are AWESOME! Even my picky husband liked them. So yummy.

Oh we love that you enjoyed it!
