Slow Cooker Chicken Burrito Bowls

These burrito bowls are packed with protein at 34g but only 19g carbs and 8g fat for a total of 294 calories! Plus, all you have to do is dump the ingredients in the slow cooker before work and it’s ready to go after! Especially if you use the Ready Rice. 🙂

Recipe:

  • 2lbs boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 8 oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup corn, drained and rinsed
  • 8 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 cup cooked rice of choice (I used Uncle Ben’s ready rice, 2 cups if dry)
  • 1 cup reduced fat Mexican shredded cheese
  • Seasoning of choice (I used salt, pepper, cumin, red pepper, and garlic powder)
  • Garnish of choice (I used avocado and cilantro, not included in macros)

Throw all ingredients in the slow cooker accept for the rice and cheese. Add in a cup of water or broth, stir ingredients, and set on low for 8 hours. If you’re using dry rice cook rice about 30 mins before the slow cooker is ready. Top with cheese when garnishing. Would be great garnished with sour cream, guacamole, salsa, or crushed up tortilla chips.

Macros (yields about 6, 2 cup servings, includes rice & cheese): 291 calories, 8.5g fat, 20g carbs, 34g protein, 3g fiber

    Do you throw the uncooked rice in for the last 30 mins or cook seperately and then add to the crockpot?

    This was so so tasty! Thanks for sharing. Is it really only 291 calories with cheese and rice included? If so, I think this is going to be my new favorite meal.

      You likely used different brands, you cannot rely on my macros when making it on your own. It is only an estimate on what yours will be.
