Chicken Burritos

One of my new years goals was to cook at home more. For someone who runs a food blog I was shocked at how many nights I do not cook. I figured I needed some quick and easy crock pot recipes to get me in the flow of things. Luckily this recipe was both (as well as super healthy).

Chicken Burritos

1 medium garlic clove- minced
14.5 oz canned diced tomatoes
15 oz. canned kidney beans
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. oregano
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast (cut into pieces)
3/4 cups chicken broth
12 medium wheat tortillas
3/4 cup reduced fat cheese

In a crock pot combine garlic, tomatoes, beans, chili powder, salt, oregano, pepper, chicken and broth. Stir well. Cover and cook on low for 5 hours. Drain off liquid. Spoon 1/2 cup of burrito mixture onto each tortilla. Top with 1 Tbsp. cheese. Makes 12 burritos.

1 burrito = 5 pts. (points plus)



  1. Looks great! I will definitely have to put that on my menu list for next week.

  2. SUCH a great idea! I <3 the crock pot. However, I have heard that you should always cook chicken on high only...apparently low is not enough to kill the bacteria and you could get sick....not sure if this is 100% right though

  3. Ahhh! I love that you are putting points plus values! So great, I will have to try this one ;)

  4. I have been following your blog for awhile. I LOVE LOVE your down home recipes. So YUM! I was so excited to see that you have added the points plus value! THAT IS AWESOME!!!!! As I have just recently joined WW too, I will be checking VERY frequently for more points plus recipes. THANKS again!

  5. Looks good! I'll have to try this one. We LOVE anything mexican. :)
