Begin by placing the chicken inside your
Then pour the salsa over the chicken and place
the two cubes of chicken bouillon on top of the
salsa. Cook on high for 3 – 4 hours or low for
6 1/2 – 7 hours until the chicken is cooked.
When the chicken is finished cooking, take it
out and shred it with two forks. Then put it
back in the crockpot with the rest of the sauce
on warm till you need it.
At this point you will want to preheat your
oven to 350 degrees. Place about 1/3 c. of
chicken filling in the middle of each tortilla.
Then fold the bottom end of the tortilla over
the middle, fold the sides, over, and roll it
up like a burrito. Repeat with all of the
tortillas and chicken (or however many you’re
You can either FRY them next or BAKE them next.
Heat the oil in a medium sauce pan (about 1/2
inch deep) until hot. Place the prepared
burritos one or two at a time in the oil,
flipping over after about 30 seconds. Once
golden brown, pat them dry on a paper towel or
let them dry on a cooling rack. Then place them
on a cookie sheet for the cream cheese step
Place the prepared burritos on a greased cookie
sheet and bake them for 15 minutes at 350
degrees. I baked mine and they still ended up
nice and crispy.
You can prepare the cream cheese now or you can
prepare it early-it’s up to you! To do so,
soften the cream cheese then mix in milk,
jalapenos, chicken base, and garlic salt. I did
this in my food processor to mix it faster and
easier. You can also do this in a blender.
Next, spread the cream cheese mixture over the
baked or fried burritos. What I did above
wasn’t enough for even me, the hater of cream
cheese. I would slather that stuff on that if
you like cream cheese! If you want to be safe
with it you can always add more later.
Finally, place the cheese slices over the cream
cheese layer. Then top with a couple of slices
of jalapeno if you’d like. Put them back in the
oven for about 5 minutes or until the cheese is
all melted and yummy.
You can serve these by themselves or with rice
and/or beans. Or whatever you’d like! They are
great on their own as well. Enjoy!
