Recipe Ingredients for Chipotle Chicken Burrito Filling

48 ounces skinless chicken breast
1 large red bell pepper
1 large yellow onion
1/4 cup lime juice
6 ounces salsa verde
6 ounces salsa
6 chipotle peppers
1 teaspoon oil

Recipe Directions for Chipotle Chicken Burrito Filling

Pour oil in pan. Place chicken breasts in a large pot and cover with both salsas, lime juice, and fajita-cut vegetables. Seed the chipotles and place in pot whole. You may use canned chipotles in adobo sauce. Add some of the adobo if desired. Cover and cook over medium heat until chicken is cooked through. Simmer over low heat for about an hour, removing the lid to allow sauce to reduce. Pull chicken apart with two forks and stir to combine with sauce. Simmer for about twenty minutes until vegetables cook down and sauce is fully integrated with pulled chicken. Serve in tortillas with lime juice, cilantro, and chopped onions.
