Slow Cooker Chicken Burrito Bowls
Here is a meal the whole family can get excited about! This Slow Cooker Chicken Burrito Bowls recipe is the ultimate savoury and delicious dinner recipe that will be sure to be a hit any night of the week! Who doesn't love Mexican inspired foods? I know I am a fan for sure, and it is definitely in my top five favourite types of cuisine. All of those enticing, robust herbs and spices, are enough to make anyone's taste buds burst with exceptional flavour. Mexican recipes are always filled with the best chillies, which bring the spice, cumin, which gives it a very earthy flavour, and paprika that sometimes gives a little bit of a sweet heat to the recipe. The other thing about Mexican food recipes is that most of them are very healthy for you and could be eaten daily. Places like the American restaurant called Chipotles does a great job of offering burritos and burrito bowls so that people can have a little taste of American-Mexican cuisine. This Slow Cooker Chicken Burrito Bowls recipe was inspired by Chipotle's burrito bowls, which are filled to the brim with a bunch of great, healthy ingredients in it like corn, chicken, brown rice, tomatoes, onions, cilantro, Greek yoghurt, chilli powder and more. So if there are no Chipotles within a reasonable distance to you, then you can try this out right at home!
This Slow Cooker Chicken Burrito Bowls recipe is also extremely easy to make, and the best part is, that it can be cooked in your slow cooker. So this recipe can be put together first thing in the morning, and will then cook all day long while you work or go to school, so you will have this beautiful meal to come home to when you have had a long day. There is nothing better than coming home to a fresh, home cooked meal at then end of the day... You add all of the main ingredients into the slow cooker and then cook it on high for three hours, or cook it on low for seven hours. Once you return home, all you have to do is add the rice to cook for thirty minutes, which is not too long at all. In the meantime, while you wait for the rice to cook, you can get all of your favourite burrito toppings prepared. I usually like to do fresh tomatoes, cilantro, red onion, greek yogurt or sour cream - Greek yogurt is just a little lighter, and some avocado. You can even add some cheese if you like! The fun part is that everyone can make up their bowls to their preference so it could be a great recipe for kids that are particular about what they eat.
