Chicken and Black Bean Burritos

We came home from vacation a few days ago and we had nothing to eat in our fridge. So I had to use what I had in my food storage. I actually came up with this on my own. I'm usually scared to do that because I'm so structured and not creative at all. I'm always afraid that if I put random ingredients together it's going to be gross. This was actually really good. I was very proud of myself for creating this. I think I'm starting to get a little more daring.
