Slow Cooker Pulled Chicken Burrito Bowls

After a friend recently asked for this recipe it occurred to me I don’t even think I’ve shared it with you..which is an absolute disgrace considering how much I utilize this one.

I make this meal no less than once every two weeks..sometimes it squeezes its way into the rotation weekly, even…for several reasons.

1) It is hands down the easiest…you just throw the ingredients into the slow cooker and let it go, then all that’s left to do  is a quick assembly of the bowls at dinnertime. Chances are you always have these ingredients on hand, too, which makes it perfect for days that you don’t have a meal plan.

2. They taste really stinking good….the chicken is hands down my favorite flavor and texture that comes out of the slow cooker. And it’s  is so versatile…use it for nachos, tacos, quesadillas or salads. I’m just sharing it in bowl-form here because that’s how we eat it most frequently.

3. My kids beg for this for dinner! There just aren’t a ton of meals that both of my two big kids adore…usually one loves something and the other can’t stand it..and visa versa. But these burrito bowls are such a sure thing…we just never get sick of them!

Make them twice and you’ll have the recipe memorized, they are that simple. Hope these sneak their way to your table soon!
