My version of Taco Time's Crunchy Chicken Burritos
I made a similar recipe under chicken quesadillas....
Crunchy Chicken Burritos
2 cups diced cooked chicken (or 2 large cooked chicken breasts) (approximately)
1 8-oz package cream cheese, brought to room temperture
1 heaping Tablespoon diced jalepeno peppers, (I used the ones that come in the jar)
1 Tablespoon of the jalepeno juice
1/2 of a small can of diced green chilis
1/4 cup grated cheese (any kind, I used cheddar, but pepperjack would be good too)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Burrito size flour tortilla's
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, stir the cream cheese, jalepeno juice, salt and pepper together till there are no lumps. Add the chicken, cheese, jalepeno's and green chili's , stir to combine. Taste to see if you need more salt and pepper.
Put a spoonful or two of the chicken mixture down the middle but more towards one end of one tortilla, and fold over end and roll up like a burrito, but leave the ends open. Place on a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Keep making burritoes until the chicken mixture is used up. It will depend on how full you make them as to how many you get. I made mine kind of skinny, like the ones you get at Taco Time. Brush the tops of the burritos with melted butter, or spray with a bit more non-stick cooking spray to help with browning.
Bake in a 400 degree oven for about 10 to 12 minutes or until the tortilla's start to brown and are crispy.
Serve with sour cream, salsa, or guacamole for dipping! Yum!!
**you can just use green chili peppers instead of jalepeno's, depending on how hot you like things. We like ours a bit spicy.
