"Quick, easy burrito/taco filling that is delicious and freezes great! I serve this with tortillas, shredded Cheddar cheese and little sour cream. You could fill the tortillas and put them all in a baking dish and then cover with salsa and cheese and bake for about 10 minutes, if you don't want a mess at the table."

  1. 2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

  2. 1 (4 ounce) can tomato sauce

  3. 1/4 cup salsa

  4. 1 (1.25 ounce) package taco seasoning mix

  5. 1 teaspoon ground cumin

  6. 2 cloves garlic, minced

  7. 1 teaspoon chili powder

  8. hot sauce to taste


  1. Place chicken breasts and tomato sauce in a medium saucepan over medium high heat. Bring to a boil, then add the salsa, seasoning, cumin, garlic and chili powder. Let simmer for 15 minutes.

  2. With a fork, start pulling the chicken meat apart into thin strings. Keep cooking pulled chicken meat and sauce, covered, for another 5 to 10 minutes. Add hot sauce to taste and stir together (Note: You may need to add a bit of water if the mixture is cooked too high and gets too thick.)
