Chicken Burrito Bowl
Here's get another delicious recipe using my Slow Cooker Pulled Chicken...it's quick, loaded with protein, and will give Chipotle a run for their money any day!
Makes 1 Burrito Bowl 🍲...You will need:
3 ounces Slow Cooker Pulled Chicken (link for recipe below)
1/2 cup prepared brown rice (I used my rice cooker to make 3 cups total, adding 4 crushed garlic cloves and a dash of salt)
1/4 cup black beans
1/8 tsp homemade Sazon (link for recipe below)
1/8 avocado, cubed
1/4 bushel cilantro, chopped
2 tbsp red onion, chopped
1/2 green onion, diced
1/2 Roma tomato, diced
2 tbsp prepared salsa (I used Muir Glen Cilantro Garlic)
1/8 cup low fat sour cream, or plain yogurt (Stonyfield Plain Low-fat Yogurt)
1/8 cup shredded cheese (Horizon Organic Cheddar)
1/4 can sweet corn, drained
1/2 lime, cut into wedges
Putting it all together:
First, place the black beans in a small saucepan with the Sazon seasoning and the juice of half of the lime wedges: turn heat to low and stir occasionally as you prepare the rest of the ingredients. Next (if necessary) reheat your chicken in a pan on low heat, making sure to add about 2 tbsp liquid (I added some of the reserved "stock" I kept after making the chicken). You can now heat up store bought prepared brown rice to save time, but if you decide to cook it yourself, just be aware that it takes about 30-40 minutes to cook completely through.
Once the chicken, beans and rice are ready, and toppings are chopped, it's time to assemble! Place hot ingredients into a large bowl then top with veggies, onions, cilantro, avocado, salsa, corn, sour cream and cheese. Try not to devour it too fast!
Multiply this recipe to meet your serving needs ❤️ It also works great in a tortilla or Flatout Wrap, just note the nutritional info is for the ingredients above alone 😉 I hope you will enjoy this as much as we did!
