made burritos for our batch cooking day, the chicken burritos were a bit, ahem, bland.
Never fear! The Cruise Director decided to kick it up a notch this time. She told me to "stew the chicken."
I was like, "Wha...?"
She came to my house and did it for me. What a friend. Here's what she did (I took notes for you.)
Cook and debone a whole chicken. Since mine was cooked in the crock pot, the meat went back in the same crock (without washing it.)
Add a can of Rotel (or 10-16 ounces of tomatoes and chop up a jalapeno). She also chopped up a jalapeno and added it. Add spices to taste...approximately 1T cumin, 1T chili powder, 1T salt, a bit of pepper and anything else that sounds good and Mexican-y to you. Stir it all around and it will probably appear a bit dry. Add about 1-2 cups of broth, preferably with lots of fat. If you don't have fat on the top of your broth, bacon grease would be super-yumma-lish.
Give it another stir, taste, and turn crock on low for 4-6 hours. Taste again and adjust seasonings.
Bye-bye bland burritos.
