Easiest Chicken Burrito

A perfect busy night meal.  You don't need sides with this, because it is filling all on it's own....and delicious as leftovers.

I've been craving Mexican a lot lately so I decided to step out of my taco/quesadilla comfort zone and do something different.

I totally cheated on this one and bought some boxed products...I never buy boxed products...however, when I'm out of the house for 10 hours a day 5 days a week, I figure it's okay to do this from time to time.

Okay...are you ready?  It's super easy...it goes quick so pay attention.

In the morning throw some chicken breasts into your slow cooker with chicken broth and salsa.  You can add some taco seasoning if you want.  I added cumin, paprika, cayenne pepper, chili powder, garlic powder and onion salt.  I left it alone for the day and shredded it when I got home.

Follow the box directions to make some Mexican rice...or make your own from scratch, if you're like that.

Then heat up some refried beans...

Clean some chopped up lettuce....and if you're classy like me, serve it in the salad spinner.  I keep it real around here.

Shred some cheese.  I would of rather done some monterey jack, but cheddar is what I had.  Also....if you're serving your lettuce in the spinner, serve your cheese in the container you grate it into....it helps with the effect of it all.

Make some pico de gallo....I love pico de gallo.  You can add jalapenos to yours but I didn't have any.

Put the hot chicken, rice and beans in a warmed up tortilla wrap.  I added way too much here...

Add your lettuce, cheese and pico de gallo...

and enjoy. 

You can totally serve it up with sour cream, if that's how you roll.

This was so good!  I loved it!

Let me know if you try it.

    Haven't tried it yet --- but I will! Looks very tasty!

  2. When you slow cook the chicken - how much broth/salsa do you add for one pound of chicken?

  3. good question. I don't know weights of meat very well, If it's chicken breasts, I just make sure they are covered with liquid. I don't measure...I just dump it in. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.

  4. Sounds good - that's pretty much what I did. Can't wait for my husband to get home so I cant eat it!! Ty!

  5. let me know how it turned out and if it was a hit or not!! did you follow it like i did or do your own version? i like feedback!!
