Menu Monday - Chicken Chile Verde Burritos




Every Monday, I'm bringing a new meme and it's going to be one of my family's favorite meals that we will be having that week.  I love to cook and sharing that love and our special recipes is one of my favorite things to do.

Chicken Chile Verde Burritos

This hearty main dish is not only healthy and easy to make but is now a family favorite.  It is easy to change a few ingredients around to make it to best suit your family.

1 pound of boneless, skinless chicken breasts or leftover turkey
4 oz of diced green chilies
8 oz of sour cream
1 tsp. garlic (crushed or powdered)
1 tsp. dill weed
1 tsp. basil
3 oz of creamed corn (you can also do 3 oz. of olives in place)
1/2 cup cheese (you can use mozzarella or really any kind that your family loves the best)
3 cups of cooked rice
Tortilla shells

Place the chicken and the rest of the ingredients (except your rice and tortillas) in your slow cooker.  Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.  You can also cook this on high for 5 hours. 

Warm your tortilla shells. Add your rice to the center of the tortilla.  Place your chicken mixture on top of the rice and roll your tortilla. 

Add a salad and you have dinner with only about 15 minutes in the kitchen!
