Crock Pot Chicken & Bean Burritos image

My kids loved tacos and chili, so I thought, "Why not burritos?" I started dumping things in the crock pot and my "famous" recipe was born.

Categories     Chicken Breast

Time 6h15m

Yield 10 burritos, 10 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 14

1 1/2 lbs boneless chicken thighs (may use breasts)
2 (15 1/2 ounce) cans black beans, drained
1 (16 ounce) jar salsa
1 tablespoon cumin
1 (10 ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chilies
1/4 cup tequila or 1/4 cup beer
0.5 (16 ounce) package frozen corn
2 tablespoons vinegar
1 (15 1/2 ounce) can refried beans
10 burrito-size whole wheat tortillas
3/4 cup taco sauce
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
sour cream (to garnish)
sliced scallion (to garnish)


  • In a crock pot add all ingredients EXCEPT vinegar, refried beans, tortillas, taco sauce, and cheddar.
  • Cook on low 6-8 hours.
  • Add vinegar and shred chicken with forks (I find a potato masher works well too).
  • In two 9x13 baking dishes spread half of the taco sauce and spread evenly.
  • Assemble burritos by smearing a tortilla down the middle with refried beans. Add approximately 1/2 cup of the chicken mixture, roll up and place seam-down in baking dish. Repeat until baking dish is full (usually 5 burritos in each dish for me).
  • Pour remaining taco sauce over burritos, sprinkle with cheddar cheese.
  • Bake at 350 for 10 minutes, or until cheese melts.
  • I love making a double batch of this and save the "guts" in a ziploc in the freezer for another day.
