Shredded Chicken Burritos (Freezer Friendly!)

I have a confession about these burritos.  This recipe isn’t mine, but I don’t remember where I got it.  I just wrote it down and put it in a folder with all the other recipes I collect.

If whoever created this recipe just happens to come across this blog, please let me know so I can give credit where credit is due. I wouldn’t want someone stealing credit for my recipes either!

P.S. These are delicious and easy and freezer friendly! The holy trinity for this busy mama!

Shredded Chicken Burritos

1 T canola oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium onion, chopped
1 T ground cumin1 t chili powder
2 T lime juice
1 15oz can pinto beans
1 15oz can chopped tomatoes
shredded cooked chicken (about 4 cups) You can use a store-bought rotisserie or you can make your own with boneless skinless chicken breasts
shredded cheddar cheese

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook until soft. Stir in garlic, cumin, and chili powder. Add tomatoes and lime juice; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer for about 10 minutes. Add chicken and beans and stir together. Let simmer for another 10 minutes.

Add mixture to a tortilla and top with plain greek yogurt (or sour cream) and shredded cheese.

FREEZE IT!  You can let the mixture cool and put it in freezer Ziplock bags in batches. When you are ready to eat, just take a bag out of the freezer and put the mixture in a pan over medium low and reheat until thawed and hot. Then make your burritos.
