Heidi's Smothered Chicken Burritos

These were absolutely delicious :) Nom nom nom.

What you need:
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and shredded (I used chicken from Fauxtisserie Chicken recipe I'll be sharing soon)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2-3 cans diced green chiles
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp oregano
  • 1 cup cream
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 cups Jack cheese, shredded
  • 10-12 flour tortillas

Preheat to 350. In a skillet, melt butter to saute onions. 

Add chiles and spices, cook for 1 minute.
Add flour for 1 minute.

Add broth and cream.

Cook until thickened, for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and add 1 cup cheese. Stir until melted.
Mix chicken and half the sauce in a large bowl.

Place chicken in tortilla and roll. Place seam side down in a 9x13x2-inch baking dish.

Cover with other half sauce and sprinkle 1 cup cheese.
Bake for 20 minutes.
