Crockpot Chicken Burritos!

Do you crave mexican food often?
like me? WAAAY too often...

Crockpot Chicken Burritos!!!


Easy, peasy, recipeasy!

All you need are these goodies, 3 frozen chicken breasts and tortillas and/or rice

Shack it all up in here.
Cook on low for 6-8 hours!
(I bought some of the slow cooker liners, no mess!)

Let it cool for 30 minutes and it will thicken.
Scoop it right up and put in your tortilla
(or serve over rice)

My sweet neighbor Jill is a foodie and she loved it.  
She also said it could use some taco seasoning for a kick.
I agree!  My mom added it to her batch and they loved it.

YUMMY!
The hubs ate three!

Even K ate a mini burrito, but she likes to call them tacos!

I give it a BIG thumbs up and thanks to my friend Kristen (she is my BFF's SIL) 
for the recipe 
(on facebook of course)


GIVE IT A TRY 
(and let me know if you like or have modifications, etc!)

  1. Yum. So did you not cut up the frozen chicken when you put it in the crock pot? Did you instead just shred it after it was cooked?

  4. love my crock pot, love the liners and i think i am going to love this receipe. i curious though, there seems to be a little bit of emphasis on "FROZEN" chicken breasts...i am inclined to thaw them and cut them up (and maybe season them a little)...thoughts? what did you do?

    1. Frozen is better to use in a crock pot for slow cooking (5 or more hours). Thawed and cut up will not take as long.

    2. Your acting bitchy. Maybe she made the recipe before this blogger did so what chill out. And if you really made this recipe many years ago then why even look at this one when you have your own recipe?

    3. Seriously, was there a need for such a rude reply? Pat yourself on the back a little harder, the only person you impressed was yourself.

  7. I'm going to try this...and add the taco seasoning. Looks great. Never knew they had crock pot liners. I must live under a rock lol. I'm trying another crock pot recipe I saw on another blog. Roast beef, bottle of beer and two packets of italian seasoning mix. It's in the crockpot now!

  8. I made this several years ago and my family didn't like it (picky kids) so now I make it without chicken and serve it as a dip with fritos! It's always gone when I take it somewhere and I love it!

  14. this looks absolutely scrumptious! Another similar recipe calls for 1 block of cream cheese, 3-4 chicken breasts, and 1 can of your favorite salsa; same cooking time... Easy Mexican Chicken! Top on rice, throw in a burrito, or spread in a taco... it's all GOOD!

  18. Made this the other night...too funny you did too! Loved it!!! I'm a cream cheese in anything kind of girl...Yummy

  19. I made this last week and am making it again tonight. My husband and I LOVE IT! I make it with just normal cream cheese and 3/4 pk of taco seasonings. I serve it over plain white rice with some taco shells crunched up. this is seriously the BEST and easiest meal I've ever made! Not to mention it feeds us 3 full meals! <3

  20. I recommend homemade taco seasoning rather than store bought. I make a batch and keep it in a jar with my spices. Batch is:
    2 Tbsp chili powder
    1/2 tsp garlic powder
    1/2 tsp onion powder
    1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
    1/2 tsp oregano
    1 tsp paprika
    1 Tbsp cumin
    2 1/2 tsp salt
    2 tsp pepper

  21. I just made this for dinner and it was a big hit!! But for some reason I thought it said to add a ranch dressing packet instead of a taco packet... it turned out really great with the ranch packet!!! Next time I'll have to try it with the taco packet.

  22. I will definatly try this.it sounds totally yummy

  23. This is just FANTASTIC! So great, that I've made it twice for my family in the last week and a half. Changes I've made:

    6 large chicken breasts (we're a family of 6 and there was no way three breasts would cut it!). An additional can of corn and Rotel and I sprinkled Spicy Taco seasoning over the chicken breasts. I did not change the amount of cream cheese or beans in the recipe. I served it with fresh cilantro, fresh sliced jalapeño peppers, shredded cheese, lettuce and tomatoes and twist of fresh lime juice. Leftovers heat up beautifully.

  24. I just made this and it is great! I used the taco seasoning and added some sour cream too.
    Well, it turns out I made WAY too much for my husband and me. Can I freeze it?

    ReplyDelete
  25. I make this recipe all the time! It's a favorite in my house....although the only thing I do different is use about 15oz. of salsa (or a jar of salsa). I'm going to try this sometime this week with Rotel since I'm out of salsa! I'm sure it's just as good :) I eat it over brazilian rice and inside corn tortillas! YUM!
