Chipotle Chicken Burrito Bowls are a quick and easy dinner idea that the whole family will love because everyone can build their own bowl, just how they like it.
Have you gotten into the burrito bowl trend yet? It’s one of my favorites because everyone can pile on what they like and how much of it they like.
The chipotle chicken comes out so tender and so full of flavor too. The best part is that you can make it in the Instant Pot OR the slow cooker which means I think just about all of you can make it today. You only use a few tablespoons of chipotle sauce but it adds so much flavor! I found the sauce in a can at my little store and it came in medium heat. If you don’t like it too hot, add one tablespoon; if you like it really hot, add up to 6 tablespoons.
Did you know that chipotle peppers are just smoked and dried jalapeños?
That’s a good way to gauge the heat – one tablespoon is about like using one jalapeno pepper in my experience. There’s so much added flavor, though, because the peppers are smoked. I love using this chipotle sauce in recipes like this because with a base of something simple like rice, it adds a lot of flavor to the whole dish and not just the meat that is cooked in it.
I love adding fresh corn on the cob, removed from the cob, to burrito bowls. It adds a great sweet crunch!
