    Deb's Recipes's Note:

    Each bite bursts with flavor as it practically melts in your mouth! The tasty burrito filling can also be used for tacos, enchiladas, or nachos. Leftovers, that is IF you're lucky enough to have any, freeze well.

      Although I always have shredded chicken (usually breast meat) in the freezer, I opted to make this recipe as written & used the chicken thighs! Although I had the garnishes available, for myself I used only a homemade salsa, some rice & cheese, & I was very happy with them that way! Others (2 guests & my other half) did them up with everything & were just as happy! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick A Chef]

      This is a great base recipe. By itself, we thought it was a little on the bland side. However, served with some salsa, sharp cheddar cheese and sour cream and that helped improve the flavor and make it tasty dish. The chicken turned out extremely moist and it fell off the bone. Mine did come out a little soupy, but I used a slotted spoon when serving it in the tortillas. I did not really taste the bacon in this. I would add some more chili powder and cumin next time to make it more spicy.
