2)Stir in BBQ sauce and beans. Sprinkle with cheese; cook 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Warm tortillas according to package directions. Spoon about 1/2 cup chicken mixture down the center of each tortilla; top each with 1 TBSP sour cream, and roll up.

My new favorite and easy is Cafe Rio Chicken

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 of small bottle Kraft Zesty Italian Dressing
1/2 T chili powder
1/2 T cumin
1 1/2 gloves minced garlic

Put in the crock pot on low setting for 3 hours. *Add a tiny bit of water, just enough to cover the bottom of the pot. Then after 3 hours shred chicken in the pot and let cook for 1 more hour. Super easy moist chicken! Add with your normal taco beans, tomato, avacado, etc. Enjoy!

*This is the recipe after I have halved it which Im sure you would do for the two of you anyways so no need for you to half it yourself!
