Baked Chicken Burritos AKA “skinny chimichangas” are restaurant delicious without all the calories!
These Chicken Burritos are made super easy by stuffing them with the BEST slow cooker Mexican shredded chicken, baking to golden perfection and smothering in most incredible Cheesy Green Chili Sour Cream Sauce. You can make the chicken and sauce ahead of time and then reheat for crazy fast assembly!
Three moths ago, I mentioned in my Slow Cooker Mexican Chicken post that the recipe for these insanely delicious shredded chicken burritos was coming soon – my goodness, how time flies! I got so caught up in holiday recipes that these beauties didn’t get their time in the deserved spotlight – until now. So over 90K Mexican Chicken pins later, I finally bring you Smothered Mexican Chicken Burritos that are ssssooooo worth the wait! They remind me of my Creamy Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas with the most luscious sauce except they get nice and crispy on the outside before they get smothered – yassssss!
These chicken burritos are my personal favorite way to devour my Mexican Chicken that is slow cooked with Mexican spices, salsa and green chilies for amazingly flavorful chicken that is just begging to be piled in a tortilla, loaded with cheese and baked until golden crispy deliciousness. And because every burrito, taco, etc., is better with either sour cream or more cheese – or both, these Baked Chicken Burritos get smothered in velvety Cheesy Green Chili Sour Cream Sauce that is oh so lick the pan worthy.
Proceed to pile your easy shredded chicken burritos high with avocados, Pico de Gallo , Homemade Salsa, Salsa Verde or tortilla strips, etc., and serve with either Cilantro Lime Rice or Restaurant-Style Mexican Rice. and enter Smothered Baked Chicken Burrito Heaven. So worth the wait.
