Crockpot Burrito Bowls

I've written this again and again, but I love cooking with my crockpot!  I love the fact that I can throw a bunch of ingredients in a slow cooker and have dinner ready at the end of a long day!  This crockpot recipe is a very healthy take on a burrito!  It also makes a ton of food!  We can easily get 2 meals out of this! 

Your Shopping List for the Crockpot Burrito Bowls:
  • 1 15oz jar salsa - you choose the spiciness level, I used "medium"
  • 1 pound chicken breasts (about 3 large pieces of chicken)
  • 1tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 2 large cloves of garlic, minced 
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 bag of frozen corn (you could use 1 can of corn drained and rinsed as well) 
  • brown rice to serve
  • shredded Mexican blend or cheddar cheese to serve  
  • additional burrito toppings of choice - like diced avocado or sour cream

Now Let's Make the Crockpot Burrito Bowls:
  1. Pour half of the jar of salsa on the bottom of the crockpot
  2. Place the chicken on top of the salsa
  3. Sprinkle tops of chicken with cumin, chili powder, and garlic
  4. Pour frozen corn and black beans on top of seasoned chicken
  5. Top with remaining salsa
  6. Cook on low for 6 - 8 hours
  7. Remove chicken, shred, and return to the crockpot and cook 1 additional hour before serving.  (If you are pressed for time just add chicken back into the crockpot, stir, and serve.)
  8. Serve over cooked brown rice 
  9. Top with shredded Mexican cheese and assorted toppings

I enjoy serving this over brown rice, but you could always change it up by serving it over chips and topping it with cheese - think nachos!  You could also just use this as filling inside of tortillas to make traditional burritos!  Have fun making this work a few different ways - the leftovers will never be boring!
