The jalapeno cream cheese adds the special kick to this recipe...I've made it without and it's good, but definately use it if you can find it!! Sometimes I will double the recipe for a light dinner, or make as below for a snack or appetizer. NOTE: Sadly, I don't think they make jalapeno cream cheese anymore, so I usually just use regular cream cheese and chopped jalapenos...use as many or as little jalapenos you want for your desired heat level.
I adopted this recipe from the Recipezaar account as I am always on the look out for make ahead recipes. I think these will freeze well and I look forward to trying that. This is the original introduction: "I needed to use up some cooked chicken and also wanted something quick, so, this is what I came up with. It was a hit at my house, I hope it is at yours too!(:" (thanks cbw)
i used to make this all the time when i lived by myself, it's one of the first meals i used to make when i just starting out on my own. it makes a great authentic tasting mexican dish. it is orginally from the Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook, with a few variations. i had to refer back to it, because i am more of a "dump" cook, and nolonger use the measurements when preparing this.
Mmmmmmmmm, really delish and a comfort food for dh and I. Easy to prepare, not much time involved. My dh showed me this in our state daily newspaper and said he'd like for me to try it. I did and fix it alot now. I serve it with warm flour tortilla's w/butter and sometimes warmed nacho chips and salsa. It's very filling and if we don't want it the next day, I have frozen it with success. Also, I have used a can of green chilis instead of the adobo seasoning and think you could spice it as hot as you want with jalepenos. We just don't do hot or really spicy. Also, the last time I only had cheddar cheese and it turned out fine, but it is better with the monterey jack/cheddar blend. Thanks for trying one of our favorite dinners!
Had just a few things in the fridge the other night and came up with this. Surprisingly, it was really good and even my DSs ate every bit on their plates. I used more than 2 cups of cheese however, because in my house, everything goes better with cheese! I topped this with guacomole, more sour cream, more cheese, lettuce, chopped tomatoes and onions. I also served it with refried beans to round it out. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
These burrito's are unlike any other!! I was feeling really creative one day, and I got all of these ingredients in my head and decided to try it out. Oh my goodness! I have created a monster!! You can add a lot more things if you wish (Corn, Peas, Cilantro, beans, etc). This is just the basic recipe. Hope you like them as much as we did!
I found this recipe in a cookbook, but changed it so much to my own liking that it no longer resembles the original. My husband and I moaned at the first taste of this. It is just as yummy reheated and you can add a few more chips to make it have that crispness again. Hope you enjoy!
