Spicy chicken burritos

So from my previous post I had a lot of left over chicken, and I just couldn't let that go to waste so here is what you will need for about 6 burritos...

1 Chicken breast
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1/2 cup salsa Verde
1/2 medium onion diced
1 Serrano Chile diced
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper

For the salsa:
you can use store bought or you can make it like I did.
Get a small can or tomatillos from the grocery store & throw them in the blender ( or you can buy about 4 fresh tomatillos peel and wash them. Boil them until soft then add them to the blender, add 2 cloves garlic, 1/2 tsp pepper, 1/2 tsp chicken bouillon, 3-4 Serrano Chile's. (add the Chile's 1 at a time to your liking. we like it kind of spicy so we use about 3-4) and blend.

In a large pan add about 1 tablespoon of oil and fry the onions and Serrano Chile together until the onions are soft

Now add in your left over chicken breast and season with salt and pepper

Cook together on high heat for 2 minutes then add in your tomato sauce and salsa verde

mix well and cook together for 1 minute then your done! Now heat up a flour tortilla on the stove or in the microwave ( I used the microwave because its just that much faster)
if you use the microwave, I find it best to wrap the tortilla in a paper towel before microwaving

Now add the chicken closer to one side of the tortilla, add some of the Mexican cheese blend we used for the Buffalo Chicken Dip, and some avocado slices and fold the bottom portion of the tortilla in like so

Then fold the tortilla up and over tightly and continue rolling until you cant anymore =)

Then your ready to eat!
