Slow Cooker Chicken Burrito Bowls

  • Author: Caitlin
  • Total Time: 6 hours 5 mins
  • Yield: 5 1x


  • 1/2 pound chicken (dark meat for the win!)
  • 1/2 medium onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 jar salsa (about 1 cup)
  • 1 cup water or stock
  • 1 can black beans (2-2.5 cups cooked beans)
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp oregano
  • salt, pepper
  • optional toppings: cheese, avocado, cilantro, tomato, lettuce, lime


  1. Roughly chop onion and place in bottom of slow cooker. Add chicken thighs and sprinkle with a little salt and pepper.
  2. In another bowl, mix together the remaining ingredients and add to slow cooker. You want the chicken mostly covered. (If you use white meat chicken, you probably want to add a little more liquid to cover them completely.)
  3. Cook on low for 6 hours, or as long as 10 hours. Shred with a fork, and serve over cooked rice with a bunch of delicious toppings.
  4. Note: If you have a rice cooker with a steamer, just toss the rice in there when you get home, and fill the steamer with vegetables. Super easy complete meal!
