Chicken & Veggie Baked Burritos

(NC)-Pantry staples like canned beans and pasta sauce are combined with fresh shredded veggies to create a delicious and nutritious baked burrito that kids and adults will love.

Shopping Tip: Look for "no fat" and "no added oil" when shopping for healthier pasta sauce options. Plus, stock up on spices; cayenne pepper adds the Mexican flare without adding sodium!

Healthy Cooking tip: Want to quickly add more protein to your Burritos without the extra sodium? Use downtime to roast a whole chicken. Remove meat and store in your fridge. Freeze the bones for when you have spare time to make your own, low-sodium chicken broth.
