Mock Chipotle Chicken Taco Bowls!

Mock Chipotle Chicken Taco Bowls 
We love Chipotle in this house. But we are on a budget (or trying to be) and eager to stick with our healthy lifestyles. This was way easy and fool proof! I served mine over spinach and Kyle served his with brown rice next time he is going to add his to a tortilla to make it a burrito. He loved it and we will definitely be making again! 

  • 1½ lbs. chicken breasts (we used chicken tenders because they were on sale and they get super tender in the crock pot!) 
  • 1 (16 oz.) jar salsa (we use the Pace restaurant style)
  • 1 (15 oz.) can black beans, drained (50% less sodium)
  • ½ lb. (8 oz.) can corn (no salt)
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder (next time I will be adding more chili powder)
  • ½ Tbsp cumin 
  • 2tsp garlic powder
  • 1tsp cilantro 
  • ¼ tsp salt 
  • to taste cracked pepper 
  • 2 cups dry rice (optional)
  • 8 oz. shredded cheddar 
  • Whole wheat tortillas (optional) 
  • Fat Free Sour Cream (optional) 
  1. Add everything until the rice into the slow cooker along with ¼ cup of water (for good measure). Give everything a good stir and make sure the chicken is covered in the mixture.
  2. Secure the lid on your slow cooker and cook on low for 8 hrs.
  3. After 8 hours shred your chicken with two forks (should be super tender by now) and add back into crock pot 
  4. Serve however you would like! I served mine with spinach as a salad and my fiance served his with rice and cheese. 
Have a beautiful, positive, healthy day!
