Easy Weeknight Dinner – Chicken Burrito Bowl

I have a love affair with Chipotle burrito bowls. Oh, they are so good. The problem is I can not go out to eat every day because it gets expensive quick. So I wanted to make a Mexican burrito bowl that I could have any time I wanted it. Of course, since I want dinner to be as easy as possible, I am using my Instant pot, for an Instant Pot Chicken Burrito Bowl.

Variations to Mexican Burrito Bowl

When making this chicken burrito bowl, I am using the typical ingredients that I would get with a take out burrito bowl. You can certainly change it up and add more or less of the ingredients you like.

  • Another way to change this recipe is to use different meat ideas. I am using chicken breast but you can use chicken thighs, steak, pork, even ham. If you wanted to make this a vegetarian burrito bowl, eliminate the meat and add tofu or “meatless” meat, available in most freezer sections.
  • Make it a Breakfast Burrito Bowl. Swap the meat for eggs and create a healthy breakfast that you can reheat for a few days. I don’t mind the idea of having rice in my eggs, kind of like fried rice, but if you don’t like it, simply remove the rice from this recipe.
  • Make it a burrito. I know the point of this is to be a burrito bowl, but you can decide to add it all into a tortilla to make it into a burrito. After filling the tortilla, you can brown each side, like you would with grilled cheese. This takes the flavor to a new level. Eat it then, or freeze it for grab and go meals.

What to Serve with Chipotle Burrito Bowl

This recipe is a complete meal all by itself. So while the Instant Pot is doing its thing, why not concentrate on dessert. With a meal this healthy, you can afford to splurge on some dessert. Here are just a few of my favorite dessert recipes.

  • Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars Recipe – This moist, delicious, and easy to make pumpkin chocolate chip bars recipe is one of the best things you will ever taste. Is there seriously anything better than combining pumpkin and chocolate? No way!
  • Lemon Blueberry Coffee Cake – Moist, delicious lemon blueberry coffee cake is mindblowing good. The aroma of baking the lemon blueberry dessert will make you drool and wish that time could go faster.
  • No Bake Oreo Pie with Chocolate Ganache Recipe – This no-bake oreo pie is out of this world amazing! Decadent, creamy, sweet, and a perfect dessert to end a meal with. You can never go wrong with an oreo pie recipe no bake because you don’t even have to heat the house.
  • Easy Millionaire Pie Recipe – Fresh, light and scrumptious millionaire pie is just what you need in your life! You won’t be able to get enough of the creamy filling in this millionaire pie recipe.
  • Pina Colada Pie Recipe – This Pina Colada Pie is beyond amazing! Every bite is filled with toasted coconut with a graham cracker crust and a creamy coconut filling with crushed pineapple, crunchy pecans, and maraschino cherries.

How to Store this Healthy Burrito Bowl

If you have leftovers of this healthy burrito bowl after eating it for dinner, you will need to store it in the refrigerator. Store it in an airtight container, storage bag or in the Instant Pot inner pot. If you are not storing this in a container with its own lid, make sure that you cover the pot or container with plastic wrap so that it doesn’t go bad.

How Long Does a Chicken Bowl Recipe Last

When stored properly, this chicken bowl recipe will last for up to 4 days. If the chicken bowl recipe will not be eaten by the time it goes bad, simply transfer it to freezer bags and freeze it for another time. It will stay good for 3 months. This is a great idea for a freezer meal.
