Slow Cooker Chicken and Bean Burritos

I really need to use my slow cooker more. I love being able to toss everything into the pot and let it go. It is hard to use during the week though because I start work pretty early. So I generally only use it on the weekends. Phil and I wanted to go see a movie today so this was perfect. I put this recipe together, we went to the movies and ran a couple errands, came back and dinner was ready.

I got a Campbell's Soup day by day recipe calendar this year and this was one of the recipes. I have never used Campbell's cheddar cheese soup for anything before. It was really good in this recipe. Using boneless skinless chicken thighs in the slow cooker is always a good idea too, because they do not dry out as fast as chicken breasts do. You could always spice this up too by adding in some green chilies. I will for sure be making this one again.
