    kineline's Note:

    " Quick, easy burrito/taco filling that is delicious and freezes great! I serve this with tortillas, shredded Cheddar cheese and little sour cream. You could fill the tortillas and put them all in a baking dish and then cover with salsa and cheese and bake for about 10 minutes, if you don't want a mess at the table

      Turned out great! I don't like chicken as it usually turns out dry, but this was perfect. I left out the hot sauce as my mom doesn't like too spicy and we thought that might give it too much of a kick, but even without the hot sauce this had so much flavor. It's definitely something I'll be making again and again. I also added rice with the mixture (cooked on the side) and it was a nice addition in the burrito. (raw rice, not the minute rice.) Thanks for sharing!

      I used some leftover rotisserie chicken (legs & thighs) to make this so it didn't have to be cooked. The initial chicken and tomato sauce seemed a bit dry so I added some chicken broth and then the rest of the ingredients until everything warmed up and I was able to easily shred the chicken. The magical ingredient, IMO, was the addition of a few shakes of Frank's Red Hot Sauce which took it from pretty good to outstanding!<br/>What a great use for leftover chicken. This goes on my favorite list. Thank for posting this.

      Excellent! I didn't have any cumin... and only now do I realize I forgot the garlic... but since I used spicy tomato sauce, I didn't notice a problem. Served with cheese and refried beans in a tortilla (which I overstuffed terribly, but the Salsa Chicken Burrito Filling isn't too runny, so it held up fine. Cooked them seam-side down at 350 for 20 minutes and they turned out perfect. Froze them and have been reheating for about 4-5 minutes in the microwave for lunch.
      Will make these again!
