Chicken Burrito Bowls

Confession: I'm a little obsessed with all these smoothie bowls, burrito bowls, anything in bowls! It's so fun and I've enjoyed trying new combinations. Last night's dinner did not disappoint. You can eat it plain or just add cheese, or go all out and add all the fixings you can come up with. 

For the kids, we just added cheese and plain Greek yogurt (instead of sour cream). I topped my burrito bowl with lime, salsa, peppers, avocado, and plain Greek yogurt ( I skipped the cheese since I wanted avocado). We all went to bed with happy tummies. 

Then today, I made a salad out of the left overs. It was delicious that way too! 

Crock Pot Chicken Burrito Bowls
1-2 lb chicken breasts
1 16 oz can chicken stock
1 cup salsa 
1 tsp chili powder 
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 cayenne pepper
pepper and sea salt to taste
1 16 oz can black beans, drained thoroughly
2 cups brown rice
3 cups water
Any toppings you may want to add 

In crockpot, pour chicken stock over chicken breasts. Cover with salsa and add seasonings. Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours. Remove chicken, add rice, water, and beans. Increase heat to high, replace lid, and cook for 40-60 minutes. In the mean time, shred the chicken and place in microwave or oven to keep warm. Return chicken to crockpot and let it reheat for 20 minutes. 

Add a scoop to a bowl and top how you desire. Makes 6-8 servings. Counts as 1 yellow, 1/2 red, and whatever other containers for your toppings.
