Chicken Burrito Bowls loaded with rice, chicken, black beans, corn, salsa, and spices all made in one pan in under 30 minutes!
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 by 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 much more affordable making the bowls at home and tastes 1000x better too!
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.
To Make One Pan Chicken Burrito Bowls:
To begin, gather and prep all your ingredients so they are ready at hand.
Next, Simply cook down the chicken, onion, and garlic until lightly browned then go in with the black beans, corn, tomatoes, green chiles, salsa, jasmine rice, and seasoning.
Top off with the chicken stock and simmer until the recipe is soft and fluffy. That’s pretty much it!
Serve with avocado, sour cream, salsa, shredded lettuce, or toppings of choice!
