RECIPE: Make The Tasty Chicken Poblano Burrito From 'Flip My Food'

If you're a fan of Mexican food and Tex-Mex flavors, you'll love chef Jeff Henderson of Z Living's popular show Flip My Food's recipe for a tasty chicken poblano burrito. The dish is inspired by Tumbleweed Tex Mex Grill & Margarita Bar's similar popular recipe, and even plated to match, all from a visit that took place during an episode of the show. Think peppery chicken and jack cheese topped by sour cream, and served with seasoned corn rounds (mmm). Try it yourself today! 



  • 1 10” flour tortilla
  • 1 chicken breast
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 2 oz. jack cheese
  • 2 oz sour cream
  • 1 poblano pepper
  • Dash of vegetable seasoning
  • 1 ear of corn
  • 1 tbsp. margarine
  • Dash of paprika
  • Dash of salt and pepper

  1. Cut chicken breast or cutlet into 1/2 strips and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and chili powder.

  3. Lay the 10” flour tortilla on the cutting board.
  4. Place the chicken strips on the tortilla to within 1” of the edges.

  6. Roll burrito.
  7. Warm in microwave for one minute.

  10. Chop the roasted poblano pepper into 1/2” -1” squares
  11. Place the peppers atop the burrito (end to end)
  12. Sprinkle the entire burrito with veggie seasoning to taste.
