Pulled Chicken Burrito Recipe
These homemade burritos are like a Mucho Burrito copy cat with delicious Mexican-style pulled chicken, pinto beans, salsa & sauteed peppers!
Mexican-themed food nights are my favourite here in the Girl on Bloor household. Sometimes, the best weekend activity is relaxing with your friends and family cooking away in the kitchen and having a few cocktails! Why go out and spend so much money when you can have a fun-filled, delicious meal at home? I've been making this DIY Pulled Chicken Burrito recipe for a few years now, and it is definitely my go-to when I don't have plans on a Saturday night and I feel like staying in.
This recipe is definitely inspired by Mucho Burrito and Chipotle Mexican Grill, restaurants where you can choose from a long line of toppings and customize your Mexican Burrito to your liking. Of course, I usually end up making all the toppings because, well…I EAT all the toppings and like to stuff my burritos til they're bursting with cheesy, tasty, spicy goodness!!
I'll even let you guys in on a little secret: my homemade guacamole and fresh salsa recipes! The key to a yummy burrito is definitely in your condiments and sauces, and I make all of mine super fresh. I might even be guilty of enjoying some chips and dip before I even get around to eating the burritos…these two make for a great appetizer beforehand!
I end up making a variety of toppings which are all fun to make and assemble. I prepare pinto beans, pan seared and sizzling vegetables, guac and salsa, chili-lime rice, and of course the famous pulled chicken. I marinate and then simmer this chicken for a long time in a blend of delectable hot sauces, cilantro and chicken broth. You'll definitely want to try out this recipe for all of your Mexican-themed food nights. I love it even for tacos.
I'd love you guys to share your Mexican food nights with me on social media. Just tag me on Twitter (@TheGirlonBloor) or on Instagram. I might even share your picture! Have a happy fiesta!
