Begin cooking the chicken tenders in a little bit of canola oil over medium high heat. While they are cooking, mix the package of taco seasoning with 1/4 cup of water. Mix until well blended. Pour seasoning in with chicken, turn down heat to medium and cook covered for 10 minutes. While that is cooking in a small bowl, mix refried beans with black beans and salsa. Mix until creamy. Remove chicken from pan, place on cutting board. Put bean mixture in pan with leftover sauce. Stir until well blended. Cook on low. Shred chicken with fork. Put chicken back in the pan with the beans, stir. Heat on low until all ingredients are heated through. Put chicken, bean mixture on tortillas, top with sour cream and cheese. Roll into a burrito.
