Chicken Burrito Bowl (Crockpot)

Burrito Bowls. Who isn’t infatuated with these? Cook it in a crockpot and you have a no hassle, healthy, flavorful dish! I adore burrito bowls. Its the comfort of a burrito, but without the guilt. Burritos themselves really can be quite nutritious, but its usually that tortilla that can kill your diet adding up a ton of calories! (My favorite tortilla is from Pancheros and its a whopping 500 calories for just the tortilla! But man… its so good!) I love a good burrito bowl. They’re easy to make and have an abundance of veggies with help with all that wonderful nutrition our bodies need. You can add cheese, avocado, and/or sour cream if you want to as well, but you by no mean have to in order to enjoy this dish! Lets face it though, everything is better with all of those ingredients. 😜
