These slow cooker chicken burrito bowls made are with cauliflower rice and will keep you full for hours. They're the perfect burrito bowl recipe and a great substitute for a burrito when the craving hits!\r\n\r\n\r\nI'm pretty sure I've mentioned before that I love burritos. \u00a0Like love love them. \u00a0A lot.\r\n\r\nAnd, while we're on the topic, I love Mexican food, too.\r\n\r\nAnd chocolate. \u00a0And coffee.\r\n\r\nAnd ... wait, where was I going with this?\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nAh, burritos! \u00a0Right.\r\n\r\nBurritos are like a cozy, delicious, blanket of goodness wrapped around more pieces of a delicious puzzle of flavors and textures. \u00a0I mean, what's not to love about that?\r\n\r\nExcept...\r\n\r\nThe tortilla. \u00a0Sadly, the tortilla isn't the healthiest of blankets. \u00a0Err...if blankets were food, that is.\r\n\r\n \r\nAre Burrito Bowls Healthy?\r\nHaving a burrito bowl instead of a burrito can often mean a difference of a few hundred calories. Given this, I have come to love burrito bowls as a delicious, healthier alternative to burritos. Like these slow cooker chicken burritos bowls, for example. \u00a0Each bowl is full of lean protein from the beans and the chicken, plus fiber from the cauliflower and tomato. Add chopped avocado for an extra hit of healthy fats.\r\n\r\nAnd, oh my, the flavor combo is amaze-balls.\r\n\r\nSo, what goes in a burrito bowl that\u2019s healthy and tastes great?\r\n\r\nFirst off, the juicy,\u00a0shredded chicken is braised all day in the\u00a0slow cooker with vibrant flavors like onion, tomatoes, and Mexican spices, like oregano, cumin, cayenne, and more. \u00a0And, while I\u2019m on the topic of chicken, I should also mention that I\u2019ve discovered this AMAZING way to guarantee juicy, flavorful chicken every time.\r\n\r\nAnd the secret is very simple: Combine chicken\u00a0breasts\u00a0with chicken\u00a0thighs.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nThis little trick ensures the juiciest of chicken, but you also keep the leaner white chicken breast meat for a delicious combination. \u00a0I know, life changing, right?\r\n\r\nWell, it was for me, anyway.\r\n\r\nNow, let's take these slow cooker burrito bowls and kick them up an even healthier step, shall we?\r\n\r\nLet's replace the rice with....cauliflower rice!\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nYep, cauliflower rice makes a pretty darn good substitution for rice and is a great, healthy "blanket," if you will, for these yummy slow cooker chicken burrito bowls. \u00a0I like to add extra flavors to the cauliflower rice, like garlic, salt, and pepper...or even cilantro and lime, sometimes.\r\nHow to Make Cauliflower Rice\r\nCauliflower rice is actually crazy easy to make (with either a\u00a0kitchen grater\u00a0or a\u00a0food processor) and is a great, lean, healthy veggie substitute to have in your pocket. Once you\u2019ve got your cauliflower rice ready, just saut\u00e9 it with olive oil in a large pan. Then continue cooking until the cauliflower\u00a0steams and becomes tenderer, after about 10 minutes.\r\n\r\nIf that\u2019s just a little too crazy for ya, I get it. \u00a0I\u2019m already making you say farewell to your\u00a0tortillas. \u00a0And now, this crazy lady wants you\u00a0to give up your\u00a0rice? \u00a0Nuuupe.\r\n\r\nIf that\u2019s the case for you, you could use steamed brown rice for a higher fiber, less-processed, and nutritious\u00a0option -- or make your own corn tortillas or sweet potato tortillas.\r\n\r\nSlow Cooker Chicken Burrito Bowls With Cauliflower Rice\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nASPC on Instagram\r\nIf you give this recipe a try, let me know what you think by leaving a comment and rating it.

Chicken is ready when can easily be pulled apart.When tender, remove the chicken from the slow cooker and shred into bite-size pieces using your fingers or two forks.In a medium bowl, combine the drained beans and enough of the juices from the slow cooker (besides the chicken). This will heat up and flavor the beans for serving.Return the shredded chicken to the slow cooker and mix with remaining juices.For The Cauliflower Rice:There are two ways to turn the cauliflower into rice-size pieces: (1) using a kitchen grater on the larger holes or (2) in a food processor. (The food processor makes this way quick and easy so I recommend it if you have one). If using a grater, keep the cauliflower whole and grate as you would cheese. If using a processor, break the cauliflower into florets - it may be necessary to do this in 2-3 batches.Heat the olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat.Add the cauliflower "rice" and cook, stirring occasionally, until the cauliflower rice is tender and just slightly golden brown, about 7-10 minutes.Mix in the remaining salt, pepper, and garlic powder into the cauliflower rice and stir to combine.To serve, add the cauliflower rice to a bowl, followed by the shredded chicken, black beans, avocado, diced tomatoes. Top with additional desired toppings, such as a dollop of greek yogurt.\t\n\t\n\t\tCan substitute cauliflower rice for brown rice, if desired.\n\t\n\n\r\n\r\nThis post contains affiliate links for products I use all the time in my kitchen and highly recommend.
