Sunday we hosted 50 or so people for a cook out. It was wonderful and there was mountains of delicious food. We ended up with 4 or so chicken breasts that I had cooked in the oven slathered in extra virgin olive oil and seasonings so tonight we had Chicken and Cheese Burritos.
I started by chopping up a small onion, and adding it to a hot skillet that had coconut oil in it. I then chopped up some frozen peppers that we needed to eat up.
While the onion and peppers cooked I used the bang bang chicken method (put the chicken in a ziploc bag and beat it with a rolling pin to break it into small pieces) and added the chicken to the pan.
I then added taco seasonings (homemade of course) and about a half a small jar of homemade chicken broth to the pan along with about a cup of leftover sushi rice.
tortillas made and my cheese shredded. I laid one tortilla down, in the center I put about a half cup of the meat mixture and topped it with a handful of cheese.
I put them in a 400 degree oven for about 10 minutes to melt the cheese and crisp the outside - which is how we like them. I served them with salsa and Mexican sour cream (crema) . I made 2 pans and we didn't have enough. This would make a great freezer meal to take to a mommy who just had a baby or they could be individually frozen and then reheated in a toaster oven for a quick meal.
2 TBS fat - coconut oil or lard
1 small onion diced
1 cup, diced peppers - variety -green, red, yellow, orange or whatever you have
3 -4 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
taco seasoning for 1lb meat
1.5 cups homemade chicken broth (or so, if you don't have enough, add water)
1.5 cups cold rice, cooked
Shredded cheese - 2 cups (maybe less - to taste)
Tortillas - preferably homemade
Saute onion and peppers in fat until the onion starts to wilt. Add chicken, broth and seasonings simmer for 6 minutes. Place a half cup of meat mixture to center of a tortilla in a thin line. Top with a handful of shredded cheese. Fold and put in pan. Cook in a heated 400 degree oven for 10 minutes or until toasted.

Oh, and did you notice I was using those aluminum foil pans? The kind you can just toss when you are done? Well, mine has been used over and over. You just wash and dry them and they are good to go for many more uses. Just a little frugal tip for you!
