Fresh Burrito

I was at my friend, Kendall's, house for dinner a couple of weeks ago. She made these burritos for dinner and they were so delicious! In the past couple of weeks, I've probably eaten one of these burritos at least every other day. Once I cook the chicken, it lasts for about a week in the fridge. I can then throw together a burrito in about 3 minutes! Here's how to make it:

Shredded Chicken:
Add about 3 chicken breasts to your crock-pot with half a jar of salsa (I prefer the green salsa but use whatever you have) Great way to use up those jars of salsa that get opened and linger in the fridge once the chips are gone! Turn your crock-pot on high and cook until you can shred your chicken with a fork. Use a little for your burrito and store the rest in the fridge.

Organic, whole wheat burrito size tortilla
Shredded chicken, warmed up
Shredded cheese
Sour Cream

Warm your tortilla in a pan and flip. Make sure it stays soft and doesn't become crunchy. Remove and add a little of all of the above ingredients. Fold in sides and roll up. Eat immediately!! This burrito tastes so fresh and is so quick and easy to make.

Variation: My husband prefers to make chicken tacos. He heats up small corn tortillas, adds chicken and then tops it with pico de gallo. Also delicious!
