Chicken Burittos! Muy Delicioso!

Chicken burittos are one of my favorite meals! When I worked, the girls used to ask me to make these for lunch pretty often! I tried something new when I made these using the crock-pot for the chicken, and I will never make them the old way again! The chicken was DELISH and SUPER easy! If you don't have a crock-pot, I assume you could cook the chicken on low in a pot on the stove until the chicken becomes tender.
(Makes 9-10 large burritos)

3-4 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts (Cut into 2-3 smaller pieces for faster cooking)
3 small (or 1 large and 1 small) can of Enchilada Sauce
1 Can Refried Beans (optional if you don't like beans.. skip em)
1 Packett Fajita Seasoning
1 Package Burrito Size Flour Tortillias
1 Package Shredded Mexican Cheese Blend
Seasoned Salt
Garlic Powder
Onion Powder

As usual, I always brown my chicken in a skillet before putting it in the crockpot.
Using a couple teaspoons of oil in a skillet- brown chicken on both sides. Season with Seasoned Salt, Garlic and Onion Powders.

In Crockpot add 1 small can of enchilada sauce, 1/2 cup of water and packett of fajita seasoning
Mix with a fork to break up the seasoning. Add your browned chicken.
Cook on low 4-5 hours until chicken is tender, and you can easily shred it with a fork.
(I did this with the chicken still in the crockpot- It just fell apart when I stirred it)
Stir chicken to mix with sauce. Continue cooking until you are ready to assemble the burritos. I don't think this can be overcooked.

Assemble Burritos
Lay out one flour tortillia
Spread 1 tablespoon of canned refried beans in the middle
Add a couple tablespoons of chicken mixture to the middle (just eyeball the amounts)
Roll the tortillia- make sure to fold the ends in so your filling doesnt fall out
Lay your burritos in a baking dish
Cover with the remaining 2 cans of enchilada sauce
Sprinkle shredded cheese over the top- However much suits your taste

Bake at 375 for 20-25 mins until cheese is bubbly

Fun Times!

I haven't blogged in a while. I really don't feel like there is enough time in the day. I can't get on the computer during the day as long as Griffin is awake, because he is a total techno-geek apparently, and tries to get my laptop every time he sees it. This also is true for remote controls, his daddy's Mac computer, cell phones, remote controls.... anything that is an electronic device- he wants!!

When I have been online in the last few weeks, it has been for me to be busy researching housing! We very recently got word that we would be transferring to another base. The one good thing about the situation is that it is still close by. We will be about 2 hours away from my family. This will be a good stepping stone for our next move! It will give me a little taste of a military move, and being a little further away from family. Who knows where we will go next!

We did finally find a house to rent. Unfortunately, Dan still has not gotten his official papers saying WHEN he really has to be there. He was told the 20th- but seeing as how that is this coming week... and he doesn't have his orders yet, I guess it will be at least a few days later. His school starts at the beginning of June, so I guess we could be moving anytime between now and June 1st or so. This whole situation has been stressing me out! I hate to move! Especially since we have only been in this house for 6 months... grrr

I have made several tasty dishes in the last few weeks... I have taken pictures of some, and not kept a "clear" recipe (I kinda eyeball stuff when I make my own recipes up- makes it hard to keep track of). A few I forgot to take pictures of.... I guess I have just had a bunch on my mind. I am going to get better! Really! As soon as we get our living situation settled... I am getting back on track!

By the way... is there anybody even out there reading this?? haha... leave me a comment- let me know that I need to actually post- and that I am not just wasting my breath... err.. um... keystrokes!

And because I shouldn't post without sharing a couple of pictures....
Here are Dan, Slayde and I with Mickey and Minnie! We had such a GREAT time at Disney! I wish I could go there everyday!

Here is my buddy Griffin... He didn't get to go see Mickey... He stayed with his meme while we were gone. I think meme snuck him some Pepsi... and Reeses...

I took this picture while at Epcot. We were hanging out in Norway.. eating Schoolbread (which was YUMMIE!!) and the sky was beautiful! This picture is straight out of camera... NOT one bit of photoshopping!

And my cute boys... just because they are cute!!

I made some KILLER chicken burittos today! OMG they taste DELISH! I WILL be posting a picture and recipe in the next few days! Stay Tuned!! And prepare to WOW yourself!!
