“I made this recipe up by taking some chicken and some basic Mexican spices and throwing them all together for burrito night. It turned out great so we have them frequently.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place chicken on a cutting board and chop into bite-sized strips. Place in a crockpot on high.
  2. Stir in the broth, onion, garlic, jalapenos, corn, salt, pepper, chili powder, cayenne pepper, cumin, lime juice, oregano, and cilantro.
  3. Simmer on high for 5 hours.
  4. Remove chicken from crockpot and shred with two forks; and place back into crock pot.
  5. Place sliced red and green pepper into crock pot, cover and cook another 30 minutes (we still like to have a little crispness to our peppers so if you want them softer cook longer)
  6. Place equal portions of chicken mixture in the center of the tortillas. Sprinkle with whatever toppings you prefer, such as diced tomatoes, sour cream, lettuce and cheese.
  7. Fold burrito up 2/3 of the way to the other side over the chicken mixture. Fold sides in towards the center.
