If you haven’t noticed, we love Mexican food around here. When we were living in Philly, we lived in a neighborhood with lots of Mexican restaurants and food carts, so we certainly enjoyed the authentic Mexican food there. After moving to the DC area I was shocked how expensive Mexican food is here. Other than Chipotle or qdoba, you pretty much won’t find anything under $10.
A few months ago I began making my burrito bowls at home. A few of my favorite homemade burrito bowls include the Chipotle’s CopyCat Chicken Burrito Bowls and the Qdoba Copycat Chicken burrito bowls. It’s really fun and much more affordable making the bowls at home.
This one pot chicken burrito is even better. It’s delicious, cooks in under 30 minutes and cleanup is a breeze! It’s perfect as a weeknight meal 🙂 We’ve had this recipe on our dinner routine for a few months now because of how delicious and easy it is to make.
