Prepare the Ingredients
1 Prepare the Ingredients

Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Drain and rinse the beans. Cut off and discard the stems of the bell peppers. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then medium dice. Halve, peel, and medium dice the onions. Halve the tomatoes. Grate the gouda and cheddar on the large side of a box grater; combine in a medium bowl. In a separate bowl, combine the sour cream and guacamole. Quarter the lime. Cut off and discard the stems of the poblano peppers. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then medium dice. Thoroughly wash your hands, knife, and cutting board immediately after handling. In a bowl, combine the crème fraîche and the juice of 2 lime wedges; season with salt and pepper.

2 Roast the vegetables

In a large baking dish, combine the diced bell peppers, diced onions, diced poblano peppers, and halved tomatoes. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and the Mexican spice blend. Stir to coat and arrange in an even layer. Roast 18 to 20 minutes, or until lightly browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven; evenly top with the juice of the remaining lime wedges.

Cook the rice & beans
3 Cook the rice & beans

Meanwhile, carefully rinse the rice (sifting through for any small stones or impurities). Drain thoroughly. In a medium pot, combine the rice, weeknight hero spice blend, a pinch of salt, and 2 cups of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 13 to 15 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork. Stir in the drained beans. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

4 Cook the chicken & spinach

Meanwhile, pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the chile paste, honey (kneading the packet before opening), and demi-glace. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until combined. Add the spinach; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the spinach is wilted and combined. Transfer to a large bowl. Rinse and wipe out the pan.

5 Make the burrito filling

To the bowl of cooked chicken and spinach, add the cilantro sauce, monterey jack, 11/2 cups of the cooked rice and beans, and half the roasted vegetables (leaving the rest in the baking dish). Stir to combine. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

6 Assemble the casserole

Add the remaining cooked rice and beans to the baking dish of remaining roasted vegetables. Add half the grated gouda and cheddar. Stir to combine. Top with the chorizo (tearing into bite-sized pieces before adding) in an even layer. Top with the remaining grated gouda and cheddar.

7 Assemble & crisp the burritos

Wrap the tortillas in a damp paper towel and microwave on high 1 minute, or until heated through. Transfer the warmed tortillas to a work surface and carefully unwrap. Evenly divide the filling among the centers of the tortillas. Tuck in the tortilla sides over the filling, then holding the sides tight, roll up into a burrito. In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Working in batches, add the burritos, seam side down, and cook 1 to 2 minutes per side, or until browned and slightly crispy. Transfer to a plate.
