Shredded Chicken Burritos
As you can tell from my recipe blog, we LOVE Mexican food. My kids can’t get enough and it’s the same for my husband and me. I wasn’t in the mood to cook a big meal (90 degrees outside) so I decided to make quick & easy burritos because they turn out good every time! The shredded chicken is very tasty with subtle hints of cumin, chili, & garlic. These shredded chicken burritos are quick & easy to make and taste fantastic.

So simple, but hearty and delicious at the same time. I love recipes like this!

These look so yummy and so easy!
This is Friday night food for us and today is only Thursday,,aaaaahhhhhhhh!!!!!
I love this recipe! I make it almost every other week. Instead of 20 minutes, I cover and leave the chicken boiling for 1 hour and a half to get the chicken tender enough to just fall apart. After shredding the chicken, I put some of it back in the broth and add some noodles for chicken soup.
OMG, these are so good! I can’t believe I’ve never made shredded chicken before. Thank you! I see so many other great recipes on your site, that I’m going to have to make a list of ingredients and head over to the store. Thanks again!!!
