Slow Cooker Chicken & Rice Burrito Bowls


Chciken Burrito Bowls in the Slow Cooker Hip2Save.com

If you’re looking for an easy and crowd pleasing slow cooker meal, try making chicken and rice burrito bowls in the slow cooker!  The chicken gets cooked first in a flavorful broth, then just add in rice about 45 minutes before you’d like to eat and it comes out fluffy and yummy.

    Thank you for posting this! We were able to try the Evol bowls for 50¢ each (thanks to your teachings). We love them, however they are rather spendy if there’s no deal. This looks like a thrifty and yummy alternative 💗💗💗

  2. Tracy

    Looks yummy! Thank you!

  3. Kelly

    Yum! I will make this!

    Does the rice become mushy? Or make the dish thick?

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      No I was glad to see it comes out great! – not mushy

  5. Melissa

    Wow thanks so much for posting! I’ve been a loyal reader for years. Have ya’ll heard of Crockingirls.com? I love their website and videos but they haven’t, (i dont think) done a video for slow cooker rice meals. I’m thinking of trying to convert this into a “Fried rice” slow cooker recipe! Super excited! Thanks for posting Lina and Collin!

    • Just Me

      I am curious about this fried rice. Pls share!

    I am definitely trying this recipe! Looks delicious! Are you able to use regular brown rice instead of instant? I have 2 bags of regular brown rice that I didn’t know what I was going to use them for because I have never cooked brown rice before so this is a perfect recipe for me to use it for.

  12. Missy

      Ahh thanks for the sweet comment Missy!

  13. Beth

    Yeah! Just got my husband to eat something from a crockpot !

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Haha my family feels like that too sometimes! That’s great news Beth!

  14. Amber

    Made this last night. Can’t figure out what went wrong but it came out sticky and mushy. Wrapped it in tortillas and made enchiladas so it wouldn’t go to waste. Tasted pretty good just mushy.

  16. jennifer honaker

    how many servings does this make? i’m looking for a recipe for 7 adults, and 3 kids. can it be doubled? and if so, how will that change the cook time? thanks. 🙂

  17. jamielynthompson4110

    I made this today and I used two cans of rotel with chilis instead of the can of diced tomatoes and can of green chilies. I also added a package of taco seasoning instead of all the other spices. My house smells amazing! Can’t wait till dinner!

    • Jayne

      I’m interested in knowing how this turned out with the changes you made. Thanks!

  18. Sheri

    I forgot to drain my diced tomatoes! Does anyone know if this will mess it up or if I should add a little extra rice??

  19. Linda

    This was great and loved everything could be thrown into crockpot. I added a cup of corn when rice and beans were added. Love the texture of rice made this way. We ate spicy tortilla chips with it and will definitely make it a regular in my meal planning.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      That is so great! Thanks for sharing 👍🏻

  20. Rey Torguson
