Chicken Burritos

I wasn't sure what I would think of this recipe, but I am so glad I tried it out. Super tasty! I found this recipe and the photo below here. I made some alterations to the recipe to make it my own. And using corn tortillas makes it gluten free if you substitute in some GF flour. 

Chicken Burritos
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 35 min.YIELD:12 servings
6 tablespoons butter
1 large onion, chopped
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3 cups chicken broth
1 can green chilies, undrained
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1 can (15 ounces) chili with beans
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, cubed
8 cups cubed cooked chicken
24 corn tortillas, warmed
6 cups (24 ounces) shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese


1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large skillet, heat butter over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook and stir until tender. Stir in flour until blended; gradually stir in broth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir 2 minutes. Reduce heat; stir in seasonings. Cook 5 minutes. Add chili and cream cheese; stir until cream cheese is melted. Stir in chicken.

2. Spoon about 1/2 cup filling across center of each tortilla; sprinkle each with 1/4 cup Colby-Monterey Jack cheese. Fold bottom and sides over filling and roll up. Place in two greased 13x9-in. baking dishes.

3. Bake, covered, 35-40 minutes or until heated through. If desired, serve with salsa. Yield: 2 casseroles (6 servings each).
