This Shredded Chicken Burrito with Guacamole Filling is not only an easy family meal to prepare, it is brimming with bold Mexican flavors that your family will crave!
Did I tell you I'm auditioning for a feature on the hit TV show, "I Shouldn't Be Alive"? Well, at least that is what my mother thinks. Truth be told, I'm doing a 30 mile solo backpacking trip through Death Valley in a couple weeks, and I couldn't be more excited. Though, in my mother's defense, there are a few ways I could die. Such as:
Bitten by snake, running out of water, getting lost, buried by an avalanche of sand, impaled by my trekking poles, abducted by aliens, choking on beef jerky, or being run over by the Wandering Stones.
Whatever my ultimate demise, please let my obituary reflect I capitulated half-heartedly.
In the rare chance my fastidious studying, map & compass skills, and overall preparation for the environment should prove life sustaining, I will survive to enjoy another Shredded Chicken Burrito with Guacamole Filling!
Oh an don't worry, you will be reading about my Death Valley adventure too. However, right now we celebrate the rich flavors in this shredded chicken burrito!
I love this recipe because the chicken is easily cooked in one pan, and the guacamole can be prepared as the chicken cooks. It is a pretty hassle-free supper that doesn't skimp on flavor.
I typically pair this shredded chicken burrito with my easy Spanish Rice with Salsa recipe. It takes little time to prepare and it can be used as a filling or a side! Make it once, and it will soon be a favorite staple!
I've been shredding chicken with forks, or these bear claws for ages. However, I have now been completely won over by shredding chicken with a hand mixer. Seriously. Buy a hand mixer and give it a try. It is an amazing multi-tasker!
