Chicken Burritos


Chicken Burritos

This is one of the simplest meals I make that is so good.  I cook the chicken in a crock-pot on low for 4-6 hours covered with red chili sauce, as hot as you like it.  When the chicken is done all you need to do is shred the chicken, heat up some beans, make some salsa and guacamole, and have a feast.

Ingredients:

Chicken thighs, boneless and skinless

All-purpose spice rub

Wheat tortillas

Red chili sauce

Black beans, rinsed and heated

Shredded Cheese, your favorite, I use a Mexican blend

Salsa

Guacamole

Anything else you like inside your burritos.

Directions:

Place the chicken thighs in the crock pot, season with all-purpose spice rub, and cover with red chili sauce.  Cook on low for 4-6 hours.  Remove chicken for the crock pot and shred.  Cover the chicken with some of the red chili sauce.

Steam your tortillas and create your burrito.  We like to add the cheese first, and then beans, then chicken and salsa followed by guacamole.  Do whatever way you like, this is a meal easily made yours, enjoy.

Photos will be posted early this evening after we go to the five year old birthday party at a park and it looks like rain in lovely Southern California, hope not.

You may notice, I am back to my original menu plan for today.  My menu took a beating this week, I hope I can somewhat follow it for next week.  I will post my new menu later today.  Happy creating.

Pulled Pork


Pulled Pork

There is nothing like a good pork burrito.  Growing up I hated Mexican food, mainly due to the fact what was available in Boston in the 70’ and 80’s was not very good.  Then 22 years ago I moved my family to Southern California and boy did my opinion of Mexican food changed.  Not only did I love it but I learned to cook it and I am so happy I did.  This is my version of the ingredients for a pork burrito.

Ingredients:

1lb.      Pork loin

2 tbsp. All purpose spice rub

1 can    Chopped tomatoes

1 can    Stewed tomatoes

1 can    Black or Kidney beans, rinsed

1 cup   Frozen corn

2          Green onion, chopped

Directions:

Put the pork into a crock pot and season with the all-purpose spice rub.   Pour the tomatoes over the pork and cook on low for around 6 hours.  Pull the pork apart and add the beans and corn leaving the crock pot on warm.  Top with the onions before serving.

Makes about 8- 10 burritos.
