Everyone in my family loves it when I make this Slow Cooker Chicken Burrito Bowl Recipe. It’s taste better than the ones from a restaurant and we can easily adapt this recipe to fit out families’ preferences.
This Slow Cooker Chicken Burrito Bowl Recipe is a simple and delicious meal.
I have a serious love of my crock pot. This appliance helps me prepare delicious meals for my family in no time at all.
This recipe for crock pot chicken burrito bowls allows me to throw all the ingredients in my slow cooker in the morning and have an amazing meal for my family by that evening or even sooner.
A great crock pot is a must for this Crockpot Chicken Burrito Bowl Recipe.
You might think I’m crazy but I currently have 3 different types of slow cookers. However, out of all of these, the Ninja crock pot is hands down my absolute favorite. I cannot recommend it enough!
This slow cooker has a stove top feature that in results allows you to brown the meat and slow cook it in the same crock pot. Genius! I wish I would have created this appliance.
My sister has this other model of the Ninja slow cooker. It is slightly less expensive but doesn’t have all the same features that mine does. However, it does have the cooktop feature (which we both love). She recommends her as well.
Trust me, Ninja knows how to make a great crock pot!
Also, the remove-able insert on both of these slow cookers makes clean-up a breeze! The insert is non-stick so it’s easier to clean than a traditional crock pot.
I also own and like this crockpot. Being able to lock the lid down is the best feature on this slow cooker. I use this slow cooker for when I have to bring food somewhere so I don’t have to worry about anything spilling in the car.
Another favorite is this programmable crock pot for when I am am not at home all day. The programmable feature allows me to come home to a nice meal ready for dinner after I have been gone all day. Since this slow cooker shuts off after a certain time, it ensures that the food does not burn when I’m away.

Have you tried making your own taco seasoning yet? I promise that it’s not as hard as it seems. This is probably one of my favorite recipes!
It’s a mix of basic spices like chili powder and garlic powder. Items that you probably already have in your pantry. I like to make a large batch and keep it in a mason jar so I always have some of hand.

How do you make crock pot chicken burrito bowls?
You are not going to believe how easy this recipe is. If you have been following me for awhile, you know that I love simple yet delicious meals.
First you put all the ingredients except the rice and lime in the crock pot and cook on low for 6-8 hours. You can also cook on high for 4-6 hours if you need it ready quicker.
Once this cook time is done, remove the chicken and use forks to shred the chicken and put it back in the crock pot. Then stir in the cooked brown rice and squeeze the limes over the chicken mixture.
Mix it all together, top with your favorite toppings and serve hot. Yum, yum, yum!!!

What is the best way to cook brown rice?
This recipe does require cooked brown rice. My favorite way to cook brown rice is in my pressure cooker. This way saves me about half of the time as cooking it on the stove top.
Also, I prefer the way it tastes when it’s cooked in my pressure cooker.
Did you know that you can also cook rice in the slow cooker? I like to cook a ton of rice in my crock pot and then freeze it for recipes like this one.
This way I always have some cooked rice on hand for recipes that require it or for a quick side dish in not time at all.
Freezing rice is so easy and saves me tons of time in the kitchen.

This way my family will eat two completely different meals with one great crock pot recipe.
