  • To Make Rice: In a large saucepan, bring rice and remaining 2 1/4 cups broth to a boil. Reduce heat, cover pan and simmer for 20 minutes. Stir in remaining 1 1/4 cups picante sauce, cover and simmer for another 5 to 10 minutes or until rice is tender.

  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • To Assemble Burritos: Stir chicken mixture into rice, then add olives and 2 cups of the cheese. Mix well. Spoon 1 cup of filling onto each tortilla, off center. Fold sides and ends over filling, then roll up. Arrange filled tortillas in two 9×13 inch baking dishes and sprinkle remaining cup of cheese on top.

  • Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 10 to 15 minutes, or until heated through.
