Recipe by Kzim4
SERVES: 8-10




  • Boil chicken in water (or broth) until cooked through.
  • Let cool enough to handle, and then shred. Place in large mixing bowl.
  • Saute green pepper and onion in a small amount of butter or oil until pepper is tender and onion is translucent.
  • Add to chicken in bowl.
  • If you have a deep fryer, fill it up and turn it on. If not, heat up 2 inches of oil in a large fry pan over medium-high heat.
  • While the oil is heating, make sauce. Combine cream cheese, sour cream, jalapeños, half and half, and garlic cloves together in a blender. Blend on high speed until smooth.
  • Add half of the sauce mix to the chicken mixture.
  • Add 1/2 cup of cheese to chicken mixture, and stir to combine all together.
  • Place approximately 1/2 cup of chicken mixture on a tortilla and roll up "burrito style". Repeat for remaining mixture.
  • Fry "burritos" in oil until golden brown, turning once if frying in a fry pan.
  • Remove to paper towels to drain.
  • Preheat oven to 325°F.
  • Place chicken "burritos" in a large glass pan (9x13 is recommended).
  • Pour remaining sauce over the top (you can reserve about 3/4 cup, if desired, for serving on the side).
  • Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  • Place in oven for approximately 15 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
