Crock Pot Chicken Burritos & Homemade Guacamole {recipe}

Crock Pot Chicken Burritos Recipe
This recipe was inspired by "Crock Pot Chicken Burritos" 
from The Art of Comfort Baking


What You Will Need
2 large chicken breasts
2 cups salsa (your favorite)
1 can corn, drained 
1 can of diced black olives, drained
1 can of beans (black or kidney), drained
1 8oz brick of reduced fat cream cheese
2 cups cooked rice
Large flour tortillas (I use spinach)
1 cup Shredded cheese (type is your preference)


Directions

1. Turn the Crock Pot on high. Add the chicken breasts, beans, black olives, corn, and salsa.
2. Cook for 5-7 hours until the chicken is cooked through and is tender enough to be easily shredded.  
3. Shred the chicken. I do this while it is still in the crock pot; just use two forks to pull it apart. 
4.  Add the cream cheese and continue cooking on low until it is melted, about 30 minutes.  Make sure to stir mixture a few times during the melting process to make sure the cheese is spread throughout.
5. While the cheese it melting, cook the rice according to the package.  
 6. When it is all cooked, lay out the flour tortillas. Layer the chicken mixture, rice, then cheese.

Homemade Guacamole

What You Will Need
3 avocados
1 small onion
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tomato, chopped
1/2 cup black olives, diced
1 tablespoon of fresh cilantro
1 teaspoon lime juice
Salt and pepper to taste 

Directions

1. Peel and de-pit avocados. In a large bowl, mash avocados.

2. Stir in onion, garlic, tomato, black olive, and cilantro.

3. Add lime juice, salt, and pepper to taste. 

4. Chill in refrigerator before eating, at least 30 minutes.  


Add to top of burritos and use for chip dip on the side!
