These easy Baked Avocado Chicken Burritos are made with Mission Gluten Free Tortillas, chicken, avocados, cheese, sour cream, and cilantro, then baked to perfection. The perfect weeknight dinner or quick and easy lunch!

A couple of years ago, I was introduced to something entirely life changing and brilliant in all its glory:

A quesadilla burrito.

It’s borderline genius. I mean, everything you know and love about a burrito with the melted cheese and crispy tortilla of a quesadilla. Genius, right?

These Baked Avocado Chicken Burritos are kind of a play off those quesadilla burritos, as they are baked-in-the-oven-burritos, giving them allllll that melty, cheesy goodness no one can possibly resist. 😉

However, there are three things that make these chicken burritos a cut above the rest:

1. They are packed with avocado. Where are my avocado lovers at?!

2. These are gluten-free, made with Mission Gluten Free Tortillas! My family has been watching their gluten intake as of late, and these tortillas have been a lifesaver!

3. They’re ridiculously simple to make. Quick and easy weeknight dinners, get at me.
