The first meal I tested was Santa Fe Chicken Burritos. The filling cooks in the crock pot. They were so easy and tasted yummy. I will definitely make them again in the future.
Santa Fe Chicken Burritos
1 can Black Beans, drained
1 can Corn, drained
1 cup Salsa, divided
1.5 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breast
8 oz. block cream cheese (you can use lite cream cheese, if desired)
fresh cilantro, optional
1 package Whole Wheat Tortillas
1. Add the black beans, corn, and 1/2 cup salsa to the crock pot and stir.
2. Add the chicken breast and the remaining salsa. Cook on high 3 hours.
3. Add the cream cheese and cook 1 hour more.
4. Shred the chicken using two forks, then spoon the mixture onto the flour tortillas and roll up into burritos. Garnish with fresh cilantro, if desired.
I think the flavor of this dish depends heavily on the flavor of the salsa you use. You can increase the flavor by adding some onion, chili powder, cumin, ceyenne pepper, etc.
