  • Assemble your Queso Smothered Chicken Burritos however you please! I placed some cilantro lime rice on the tortilla, a spoonful of black beans followed by some chicken. Rolled up my burrito and poured Ricos Queso Blanco Cheese Sauce over the top. Place some lettuce topped with guacamole and sour cream on the side. Place a spoonful of pico de gallo on burrito and eat!
