Ingredients

  • 3 chicken breasts
  • 5 1/2 cups chicken stock divided
  • 3 teaspoons onion powder
  • 3 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 3 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne powder
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 15 ounce can black beans drained and rinsed
  • 15 ounce can corn drained
  • 15 oz can petite diced tomatoes drained
  • 4 cups Instant Minute brown rice
  • 2 large jalapenos diced - stem, seeds, ribs removed
  • 2 limes juiced (plus more for squeezing)
  • 1/2 cup cilantro chopped
  • 6 green onions diced
  • tortilla wraps, cheese and sour cream (optional)

Instructions

  • Easy! To make this Slow Cooker Burrito Bowl, add chicken breasts, chicken stock and spices to your slow cooker and cook on High for 4 hours or on High for 6 hours if you are like me and you are grabbing chicken from the freezer. 
  • After the cook time has passed, remove the chicken and using two forks, shred into bite sized pieces. Do not add the chickent back into slow cooker yet, just set it aside for now. 
  • Adding to the existing liquid in the slow cooker, add 1.5 cups of water or chicken stock, uncooked brown rice, black beans, jalapenos, tomatoes and corn into the slow cooker and cook on High for 30 minutes. 
  • Add chicken back into rice mixture along with the juice of two limes, cilantro and green onions and cook for another 10 minutes. Serve your Slow Cooker Burrito Bowls up as burrito bowls or in wraps topped off with cheese and sourcream, if you like.

Notes

Be sure to check the sesonings of your Slow Cooker Burrito Bowl before ringing the dinner bell .. I usually find myself adding another 1/2 teaspoon of salt and a teaspoon of cayenne to the slow cooker and stirring it in before serving but that is just to my taste.
