Combine the water, salsa and garlic powder in a large pot. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring occasionally.

After 5 minutes, check the consistency of the rice. If it is soft and tender, it is done. If not, cover and continue to let sit for another 2 minutes.
Remove the pan from the burner. Add the black beans, shredded chicken and cheese. Mix until combined.

Place the burrito filling in the center of each tortilla, leaving about ½ inch of space from the edge.
Roll the burrito and place in the pan, seam side down.
