Tasty Tuesday - Crock Pot Chicken Burritos

I got this recipe from a friend at a recipe exchange.  It is so easy and really healthy!  It's full of veggies, whole grains, and lean protein.  Yum!

Spicy Chicken Burritos
A Crock Pot Meal

1 medium zucchini, halved lengthwise and cut into slices
1 green or red pepper, chopped (I used a red and love the color it brought to the dish!)
1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 cup chopped celery (I didn't have any, so I skipped this)
1.5 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast, uncooked and cut into strips
1 bottle (8 oz) green taco sauce
1 tsp instant chicken bouillon granules
1 tsp cumin
1 cup instant brown rice
toppings (cheese, salsa, guacamole, sour cream, etc.)


  1. In a slow-cooker, combine zucchini, peppers, onions, and celery.  Top with chicken strips.  
  2. In a small bowl, combine taco sauce, bouillon and cumin. 
  3. Pour over chicken.  
  4. Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours or high for 3-4 hours.  
  5. Stir in rice.  
  6. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes.

Divide the chicken mixture evenly among tortillas, add toppings, and fold!  Secure with a toothpick if necessary.
