Creamy Chicken Burritos

Creamy Chicken Burritos (Serves Four to Six)

3 chicken breast halves cooked and cubed
1 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese
1 Cup Salsa
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 15 oz can pinto beans drained
1 ½ Cup shredded cheddar cheese
6 flour tortillas

Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 9×13 baking dish. Add cream cheese and salsa to large sauce pan. Cook over medium heat until cheese is melted and blended with salsa. Add garlic, beans and chicken. Mix well. Fill tortillas, roll up and place in baking dish. Mixture will be a bit runny so be careful not to burn yourself filling tortillas. Sprinkle burritos with cheese, cover with foil and bake 20 minutes.
Remove foil and bake an additional 10 minutes.

Serve with the rest of the salsa & tortilla chips

Fun Ideas for This Meal:

Make a Mexican topping bar with all of your favorite toppings (sour cream, lettuce, tomatoes, & salsa). Each family member can dress their burrito in their own special way. Yet another great way to get some veggies on their plates!

A yummy chip dip can be made by simply blending one brick of softened cream cheese with a jar of salsa. Blend with your hand mixer and serve with the tortilla chips. If you are in a time crunch, simply pour the salsa over the brick of cream cheese and serve with a spoon.

    I tried this recipe the other night. It was great. Only thing I changed was I used black beans instead of pinto beans. Could only get a 30 oz can at Aldi near me. We even had enough left over for lunch the next day. Thanks for the great recipe.
