Crispy Chicken Burrito

I rarely feel the need to post something as soon as I make it but a couple nights ago it was a different story. I had to post this one next and I had to share this one with you. I was going to post something else, but I had to scratch that idea because this was so amazing. I was looking for something to make and I just couldn't make another pasta dish, casserole or plain old meat dish. This is the thing I was looking for and I definetely wasn't dissappointed.

This recipe tastes like it came from Taco Johns or for you people that aren't blessed with those I'd say Taco Bell! The burrito shell is crispy and the inside is packed full of creamy chicken yuminess. It's a bit of a mix between a Taco joint and a Chipotle. I live in the middle of no where so it's a special occasion when I get to a Chipotle and I usually hit one up everytime I have a chance.

The best thing about this recipe is that you can easily adapt it to your wishes. Don't like chicken? Use some beef instead. Don't like beans? Leave them out (which my hubby just informed me he might like them better without them!). Want some peppers in there. Add them in! See the possibilities are endless. Enjoy!
