How to make shredded chicken burritos

To make this recipe start with the ingredient that takes the longest. Take a whole chicken and rub it with Mexican seasoning or chili powder.

Cook the chicken in a slow cooker, Instant Pot or Crockpot Express for 3 hours on HIGH or 6 hours on LOW.

While the chicken is cooking make the Mexican rice. Follow the recipe and first soften the onion and garlic in olive oil.

Stir until translucent and soft then add the basmati rice.

Stir before you add the tomato sauce, stock, and scallion. Put to a low simmer and let the stir absorb the liquids for 10-15 minutes until the rice is dry.

Fluff the rice with a fork. Then boil the green beans in water for 10 minutes until they are done.

When the chicken is done put the chicken under the broiler for 5-10 minutes to crisp up the skin. Shred the chicken apart with two forks which is the easiest way to pull apart chicken.

Then construct your burrito. Take a big tortilla and put three to four tablespoons of Mexican rice in the middle.

Add the shredded chicken on top of the rice and add green beans to the tortillas. Drizzle some burrito sauce on top and roll up the big tortilla burrito-style.

Keep warm in a warm oven, about 200℉. Repeat for the remaining burritos and your pulled chicken burritos are ready to serve.
