Salsa Chicken Burrito Filling

Salsa Chicken Burrito Filling


"Quick, easy burrito/taco filling that is delicious and freezes great! I serve this with tortillas, shredded Cheddar cheese and little sour cream. You could fill the tortillas and put them all in a baking dish and then cover with salsa and cheese and bake for about 10 minutes, if you don't want a mess at the table."

  1. Place chicken breasts and tomato sauce in a medium saucepan over medium high heat. Bring to a boil, then add the salsa, seasoning, cumin, garlic and chili powder. Let simmer for 15 minutes.
  2. With a fork, start pulling the chicken meat apart into thin strings. Keep cooking pulled chicken meat and sauce, covered, for another 5 to 10 minutes. Add hot sauce to taste and stir together (Note: You may need to add a bit of water if the mixture is cooked too high and gets too thick.)

The best way to shred this is to put the chicken in the crockpot. I used 3 frozen chicken breasts. Mixed all of the ingredients(decreased the taco seasoning and cumin per the reviews) and poured...

I make this in the crockpot, only make sure to use low sodium taco seasoning mix. I think McCormick makes it. This is one of my favorite easy recipes!

I made this today in my Lil' Dipper Crockpot. I used homemade salsa, homemade taco seasoning and california ground chili powder. Even cooked in the crockpot it turned out juicy and flavorful--pe...

Too salty with the multitude of seasonings. I'd suggest the chili powder and cumin and leave out the taco seasoning.

I just have to say that this recipe had the most amazing flavor. I couldn't stop eating it before the rest of the food was done! I didn't use it as a burrito filling though. I came up with a ...

This was a HUGE hit with my husband! I ommitted the hot sauce and used only 3/4 of the taco seasoning. Still very flavorful! Added white rice flavored with chicken bouillon, fat free refried b...
