I found this in an old magazine and Keaton, my husband, said it's an 8... and an 8 means it can be eaten once a week! WOOT WOOT for a good one!!
Fiesta Chicken Burritos
1 1/2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 can (15 1/2 oz) whole kernel corn, drained
1 can (15 oz) black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can (10 oz) diced tomatoes and green chilies, undrained
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
3 tbsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. pepper
dash cayenne pepper
dash crushed red pepper flakes
1 pkg. (8 oz) cream cheese
8 flour tortillas (8 inches), warmed
Optional fillings: sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese, shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes
1. Place chicken in greased 4-qt. slow cooker. In a large bowl, combine
the corn, beans, tomatoes, jalapeno and seasonings; pour over chicken.
Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours or until chicken is tender.
Remove chicken, cook slightly. Shred meat with two forks and return to
the slow cooker. Stir in cream cheese. Cover and cook 15 minutes
longer or until heated through.
3. Spoon 3/4 cup chicken
mixture down the center of each tortilla; add fillings of your choice.
Fold sides and ends over filling and roll up.
Editors note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
did I do different....I used 2 chicken breasts and 1 thigh... they were
what I had in the freezer and it was PLENTY of meat in the finished
product. I put them in the crock pot frozen, straight from the
freezer. I left out the jalapeno. #1, I aren't really into super spicy
and #2, I didn't have one! I also left out crushed red pepper flakes
but used a little more cayenne. Again, no red pepper flakes in my
cupboard! I cooked 2 1/2 hours on high before shredding the chicken.
Let's face it, I always forget to start dinner early enough to cook on
low 5 hours soooo I pretty much cook on high about 1/2 the time anytime I
make anything in the slow cooker. When I added the cream cheese I used
it straight from the refrigerator and just cubed it and mixed it into
the corn/beans/tomato mixture when I added the chicken back. Our
fillings were sour cream and shredded Mexican mix cheese. Lettuce would
have really added something to it but again, didn't have any on hand.
If you like Chipotle you'll probably like this recipe. If you haven't ever had Chipolte this will be a new experience :)
