Here we are, starting the new year off right with a healthy (I mean, depending on how much cheese you put on here) burrito bowl dinner!

I’m also starting the new year off with a big, fat, evil, cold.  Everyone is like “new year, new me” and I’m over here going “new year, new *sneeze* *cough* I’m going back to bed.”

These bowls are absolutely on my dinner menu this week….I can’t function but to do much more than put food in the slow cooker, and these are my saving grace.

Check out our video for these burrito bowls below so you can see just how easy they are!


While these are on the healthy side, they’re also flavorful and filling enough to be classified as comfort food.

All of the flavor comes from the chicken cooking with TWO delish sauces and there is always plenty of sauce to coat your rice up with if you choose.

I am all about the sauce.  When I go to any of the burrito bowl serving chain restaurants I get EXTRA salsa, guac, sour cream….anything to make it saucy, cozy, and a tad spicy.


Cheers to starting the new year off right, cheers to healthy/saucy/cozy winter dinners!
