My Healthy Not Really Burritios, Not Really Enchiladas Dinner

Well if you are wondering.... the suggestion to blog the recipe happened after the fact, hence the empty dish from our scrumptious dinner!
So I make this chicken with salsa, that I LOVE, but thought....mmmmm burrito!!! Well, as is half of America, I am avoiding starchy carbs...so here are my burritos!
This was a best guess recipe made from my mind, wanting to combine that great chicken, and yum...GUACAMOLE!!! I am Texan, afterall!

2 Chicken Breasts
A jar of Salsa
2 Avacados
6 Corn Tortillas
Light Sour Cream
Lemon juice
Lime Juice
Garlic Salt
Shredded 2% Cheddar

1. Take the 2 Chicken Breasts, put it in oven safe dish, and cover with foil. Cook on 325degrees for 1 hour. After it is done, the chicken should pull apart when stabbed with a fork. Pull apart into chunks.
2. Make guacamole- I cut the avacados in half, pull out the pit, spoon out the green, and put it in a dish. Then add a teaspoon of lime juice, a teaspoon of lemon juice, and 1/2 teaspoon of garlic salt. Take a fork, and mash up the avacado and mixings. Keep doing this until in a slightly smooth, slightly clumpy consistency.
3. Heat up Corn tortilla (I microwave in a tortilla warmer slightly wet for 35 sec...you can do this in between 2 plates...top one turned upside down).
4. Now assemble. I had corn tortilla, with a layer of guacamole, a little daisy light sour cream, a little dusting of 2% cheddar cheese, and then some chicken with salsa spooned into the center.
5. Fold up and Eat it!

I also had some Snyders Multigrain Tortilla Chips with a spponful of guacamole. This could go great with a lime cactus Michelob Ultra. Not a perfect South Beach meal, but one that is healthy, tasty, and not deprived!!!
