About Burrito

Burritos are a typical Mexican food. This dish consists of a wheat tortilla filled with various kinds of meat such as beef, chicken or pork. These cooked meats are usually the sole filling, and then rolled in the tortilla. In the United States, the contents of burritos are more varied, such as rice, kidney beans, cabbage, tomatoes, salsa sauce, guacamole, cheese and sour cream --- this causes the size of the burrito to be larger. Wheat tortillas are usually grilled or lightly warmed to make them softer and easier to roll. The word burrito, in Spanish, means "little donkey". This name was probably given because the shape of the ends of the rolled-up wheat tortillas is similar to the ears of a donkey. Or maybe a burrito is similar to the bags that donkeys usually carry in South America.

Cara's Slow cooker Chicken Burritos step by step

  1. In a slow cooker, add water, bullion cube, taco seasoning & garlic all mixed together. Top with chicken. Low 6-7hrs, high 3-4. Mine were semi frozen so I cooked them on high 5 hrs.
  2. Remove chicken & shred. Pour all broth into large bowl & reserve. Mash garlic in the bottom of crockpot & leave for now.
  3. Add chicken, beans, corn, rotel, onions, squeezed lime, fajita seasoning, cilantro plus enough broth to fill half way. Just enough to keep it moist, but not too much to make a soup!.
  4. Now this needs to cook another hour or so in the slow cooker. I did mine for 2. I wanted all the flavors to be enhanced & come together! This will also give you a chance to check if more seasonings need to be added. Also, the reserved broth is handy if more needs to be added..
  5. With a slotted spoon, scoop the mixture onto the tortilla, making sure the least amount of juice gets in the tortilla. Sprinkle cheese on top. You want to leave 3/4 to 1 inch on each end for accurate folding..
  6. Once folded, add to a med high griddle or non-stick pan. I add a tiny butter to get a crispy outer edge. Flip burritos until golden on both sides..
  7. These can be served with salsa, sour cream, guacamole or enjoyed the way they are!! I hope you enjoy!.
