Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken is the best burrito filling! Makes a ton of filling to stretch your buck.
I couldn’t believe how good the flavor was in this Slow Cooker Sour Cream Salsa Chicken. These burritos are so nice to make for a crowd because all the toppings for the burritos are in the Slow Cooker! But how can you go wrong with chicken, salsa, seasonings, black beans, rice, sour cream, and cheese!
This recipe makes a ton of filling for your tortillas, I bought medium-sized flour tortillas, and I swear, it could have filled about 12-15 burritos. What a budget-friendly recipe, the rice really stretches your dollar!
