As a foodie, I would probably never advertise recipes that call for canned chicken! It’s not that I’m above canned chicken- it’s just that it’s usually a last resort for when you’re out of time. But here’s the thing; We’re all out of time sometimes, and life happens, and it’s great to have something decent to feed our families in just a few minutes. Enter canned chicken! I learned that if you add enough taco seasoning to the chicken, then it’s actually pretty yum! And in these burritos, baked in a crispy tortilla with a cheesy filling, it’s downright delicious and I am pretty sure you AND your kids will love it!
