Slow Cooker Cream Cheese Chicken Burritos

I love chicken burritos, especially from Chipotle. However, the burritos don't love my waistline! Ha Ha.  What I love about these Burritos is that I was able to make them a little healthier and still feel like I was indulging in a full fat burrito. For those who follow weight watchers, I know 11 pp is on the high end but compared to a traditional burrito I must say that is pretty good! They were a hit and very simple to make!

Slow Cooker Cream Cheese Chicken Burritos
Makes 4 Burritos
WW PP=11
Cal 485, Carbs 50.7, Fat 14g, Fiber 5g, Protein 29.5

16 oz. boneless skinless chicken breasts
4 oz. reduced fat cream cheese
2 tbsp. chili powder
2 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 cup enchilada sauce
1/2 cup reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup fat free re-fried beans
1 can rotel
4 large flour tortillas

Spray the bottom of your crock pot with non stick cooking spray. Place chicken in the bottom and sprinkle with chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Top with 1/4 cup of the enchilada sauce and cream cheese. Cover and cook on low 4 hours. Remove chicken mixture. Shred and place in a large bowl. Mix well.

Assemble burritos by spreading chicken mixture down the middle of the tortilla. Add in your re-fried beans, shredded lettuce, and any other toppings of your choice. (I used some light sour cream) Fold burritos and place into a baking dish. Pour remaining enchilada sauce over the burritos and sprinkle with cheddar cheese.

Broil for 5-10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Enjoy!

  1. Never thought to make burritos in the crock pot. Looking forward to making this!

  2. Sounds delightful! I love enchiladas any way at all!

  3. I'm with you when it comes to chipotle burritos. Making them at home in the slow I really like that and being able to control the size of the burrito is a plus.

  4. Those look delicious, love crockpot recipes like this!
