How to make Slow Cooker Chicken Burrito Bowl

Step 1: In a slow cooker, place the chicken and sprinkle it with taco seasoning. On top, add the corn, black beans, and onions. Then, pour the salsa over along with the canned tomatoes. Set to cook for 4 hours on high or 6 to 8 hours on low.

Step 2: Before serving, shred the chicken using two forks. Then, add the cilantro and stir well.

Step 3: Serve the Chicken Burrito over brown rice with your favorite toppings if desired. Enjoy!


This Chicken Burrito is also an amazing appetizer. Skip the rice and serve this instead with whole-grain tortilla chips.

This dish is fridge friendly. You can save this for another meal, and also great for dinner preparation.
