I made this recipe up as I went, and it came out pleasing to even my pickiest eater.  I used home canned items, but feel free to substitute purchased items in the same measurement.  It's a very forgiving recipe to use what you have on hand and vary to suit your own tastes.

Chicken Burrito Filling

1/4 cup butter
2 quarts canned chicken thighs, shredded
1 quart chicken broth
1/2 a yellow onion, diced small
4 roma tomatoes, diced into small chunks
4 cups cooked white rice
1 quart pinto beans
2 Tbsp pickled peppers
1 cup flour
2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder

 Melt butter in pot. Saute onion until soft.  Add 2 cups chicken broth.  Whisk in flour to make a roux. Add in remaining chicken broth, and all other ingredients.  Heat through, stirring often.  Serve with salsa, shredded lettuce, cheese, olives, etc, as desired.
