Southwestern Tabbouleh Burritos

Southwestern Tabbouleh Burritos
Bulghur wheat is the base for tabbouleh, which gets a zesty Southwestern flair when wrapped in tortillas with chicken and beans.
1   tbsp (15 mL) canola oil, divided
3/4   cup (175 mL) uncooked bulghur wheat
3-4   limes
1   small chipotle pepper in adobo sauce plus 1 tbsp (15 mL) adobo sauce, divided
1   garlic clove, pressed
12   oz (350 g) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2   plum tomatoes, seeded
1/2   cup (125 mL) canned black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2   cup (125 mL) chopped fresh cilantro
1/3   cup (75 mL) chopped red onion
4   (11-in./28-cm) low-fat, low-sodium flour tortillas, warmed (see Cook’s Tip)
   Salsa, fat-free sour cream and lime wedges (optional)
  1. In (3-qt./2.8-L) Saucepan, bring 1 cup (250 mL) water and 1 tsp (5 mL) of the oil to a boil; stir in bulghur. Cover and remove from heat; let stand 25 minutes or until water is absorbed.
  2. Meanwhile, for marinade, zest lime using Microplane® Adjustable Fine Grater to measure 1 tbsp (15 mL). Juice limes using Citrus Press to measure 1/3 cup (75 mL). Combine zest, juice, adobo sauce, pressed garlic and remaining 2 tsp (10 mL) oil in (2-cup/500-mL) Prep Bowl; mix well. Reserve 1/4 cup (50 mL) of the marinade for tabbouleh. Place chicken and remaining marinade in large resealable plastic bag; turn to coat. Refrigerate 20 minutes.
  3. For tabbouleh, dice tomatoes and finely chop chipotle pepper to measure 1 1/2 tsp (7 mL) with Santoku Knife. Combine bulghur, tomatoes, chipotle pepper, beans, cilantro, onion and reserved marinade in Classic Batter Bowl; mix well.
  4. Heat Grill Pan over medium heat 5 minutes. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Cook chicken 5 minutes on each side or until internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C) in thickest part of chicken and center is no longer pink. Thinly slice chicken crosswise. Add chicken to tabbouleh; mix well.
  5. Spoon tabbouleh evenly down centers of tortillas. Fold in ends of tortillas and roll up tightly. Cut burritos diagonally in half. Serve with salsa, sour cream and lime wedges, if desired.

Cook's Tips: Bulghur wheat is made from whole grain wheat. It is low in fat and has a mild nutty flavor.

Warming tortillas will make them easier to roll up. To warm tortillas, place them between paper towels. Microwave on HIGH 30-45 seconds or until warm.
