These Slow Cooker Smothered Chicken Burritos from Slow Cooker Gourmet start out in the slow cooker by combining boneless, skinless chicken breast with a few simple ingredients including fire roasted tomatoes and chopped green chiles. After it cooks all day you simply shred the chicken and it's ready to go.
This is a great base recipe that gives you options for several dinners during the week. I'm thinking of tacos, enchiladas, or on a salad. And if by chance you had leftovers, they could easily be frozen for use at a later time.
Jennifer filled burrito sized tortillas and baked them just long enough to get them crispy. While they were baking she made a homemade cheese sauce to top them with. Sounds like a winning combination to me. Slow cooker smothered chicken burrito anyone?
