this green chili chicken burrito bowl Inspired by a slow cooker green chili chicken burrito bowl I made years ago, but this version made in the Instant Pot has a few twists. Changes I think made this chicken burrito bowl even better I hope you like it! Since I reworked the recipe, I’ve been making it regularly, so here it is in my favorite picks for this Friday!

How could the recipe have been improved? First, I left out the black beans to make this a low carb recipe (you can do the slow cooker version as well). Second, I used frozen cauliflower rice this time for ease of preparation. Make your choice on that. And third, I had some cherry tomatoes that I wanted to add to the avocado salsa, so it made the dish tastier and more colorful.

I tested this recipe with Jake and Kara and it took me two tries to get the winner, but I love the final version of these burrito bowls! We hope you like this chicken burrito bowl idea for a cool summer dinner!
