Chicken burrito bake

Thanks to my wonderful friend Jen for sharing this very yummy recipe!

4 c shredded cooked chicken (or shredded pork or black beans)

1 c tomatillo salsa/ salsa verde

2 c shredded mexican cheese (or your own shredded cheese with pinch of cumin).

8-10 flour tortillas (I use whole wheat)

1 jar alfredo pasta sauce

Shredded lettuce or cabbage, avacado, tomato, olives and/or celantro for serving

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Place chicken, salsa and 1/2 c cheese in a large mixing bowl and stir until well combined.

Spoon 1/2-3/4 c of mixture down center of a tortilla. Fold one edge over filling, then roll and place seam side down, in 13x9 in glass or ceramic baking dish. Repeat with remaining tortillas and filling, placing burritos snigly side by side in baking dish. Place pasta sauce and remaining cheese in mixing bowl and stir to combine. Pour over burritos.

Bake the burritos until the sauce bubbles, 20-25 mins. Remove from oven and let cool 10 mins, then serve. Serve over lettuce or cabbage and top with more salsa or other toppings

Review:These tasted great.I used leftover chicken from the other night and Ragu classic alfredo sauce! great way to use up leftovers!
