How to: Make Shredded Chicken Burrito Bowls

These shredded chicken burrito bowls are the best kind of cooking. It’s so lowkey and easy to make, and we have it at least once a week!

In a small pot, heat the rice and add lime juice and some cilantro. Stir and set aside over low heat.

Drain the black beans and corn well. Heat a medium sized pan over medium heat. Mix the rotisserie chicken, black beans, corn, cumin, oregano, salt, and pepper. Heat for roughly 10 minutes until warm, stirring regularly.

Place a scoop of rice into each bowl. Top with the chicken and vegetable mixture and various toppings. My favorites are avocado and pico de gallo.

Garnish with remaining cilantro and serve with chips and salsa. Enjoy!

    I make a lot of rice bowls with salad, cheese, chicken and sauce. Which are guess are similar to these! This looks lovely. I might have to add avocado into mine!

  5. Your posts just make me hungry. That looks so good right now. Pico di gallo? YUM! And that perfect avocado half. A squeeze of lime juice and some sour cream and I am happy! Oh, how I wish we could just touch the screen and then the food would appear. If you figure that out, you’ve really made it! Thank you for the share and the inspiration for dinner. Now, I just need to shop.

  6. I can’t say I’ve ever had that sort of a meal before but it sounds absolutely delicious! What’s there to not love. The only thing there that I don’t like, is the cilantro. Is it just me? No one in my family will go near any food with that in!
    Great recipe to try out though.

  7. Wow!! This looks so good.
    I love recipes where you can use leftovers like chicken.
    I like to make a big batch of chicken for Friday night dinner and then use it in different forms all throughout the week. This is such a great idea!
