In Main Course 289 views

These Smothered Burritos are filled with shredded chicken, cheese and spices, baked until crispy, and then smothered in the best homemade green chile sauce.

These Smothered Burritos are loaded up with destroyed chicken, cheddar and flavors, prepared until fresh, and afterward covered in the best natively constructed green chile sauce.

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT GREEN CHILI BURRITOS:

  • Without any preparation. They’re made with genuine, new fixings (no canned enchilada sauce or canned “cream of” soups!) since we should all concur at this point that everything tastes better without any preparation! ūüėČ
  • Eatery quality. They’re similarly just about as great as anything you’d get at your #1 Mexican Restaurant! Serve them with Authentic Mexican Rice, refried beans or charro beans!
  • Freezable! I like to twofold the formula and serve half for supper, at that point freeze the other half for one more evening.

Notes

  • Tortillas:¬†I prefer to use¬†uncooked flour tortillas, but regular flour tortillas work as well.¬†Make ahead Instructions:¬†The chicken filling and green chile sauce can both be made a day or two in advanced, making dinner prep super easy! Store them separately, covered in the fridge.¬†Freezing Instructions:¬†¬†Make the burrito filling as instructed and roll up in tortillas (either uncooked or regular tortillas). Place in a freezer ziplock bag. Make the sauce but do not add the sour cream. Freeze sauce in a separate container. To bake from frozen place frozen burritos on a lined baking sheet, cover with tinfoil and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Uncover and bake for an additional 15-20 minutes or until warmed through and crisp on the outside. Add frozen sauce to a saucepan and warm. Stir in sour cream. Serve over cooked burritos.
