Knockoff Chipotle

I'm usually keen on DIYing knockoff versions of home decor items, but when I saw this recipe on Pinterest, I knew it was time to try my hand at a knockoff version of one of my favorite foods: the burrito bowl from Chipotle.  Honestly, this dish doesn't taste exactly like the Chipotle version (although in fairness, it never claimed to...I just decided it looked like it!), but it is pretty darn close and soooo easy to make (just stick everything in the crockpot for 8 hours or so) that it's well worth it!
sorry for the less than fantastic picture, but trust me...this is pretty tasty

Crockpot Chicken Taco Bowl
  • chicken breasts (raw)
  • 16 oz. can black beans
  • 15 oz. jar salsa
  • 8 oz. frozen corn
  • 1 tbsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 tbsp. cumin
  • 1/2 tbsp. minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp. oregano
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • rice
  • cheddar, sour cream, cilantro, guacamole, or whatever else you like to top your southwestern fare with
To make, put everything in the crock pot...chicken at the bottom and cover with remaining (except rice and toppings).  Make sure chicken is well covered, and then turn crockpot on low for 8 hours.  When there is about a half hour left, shred chicken with a fork (it will be very easy to do!).  Make rice, and serve chicken over rice with toppings of your choice.  Enjoy!
PS: I have seen recipes for the Chipotle rice floating around on Pinterest, so if you're feeling particularly ambitious, you could conquer that at the same time.


  1. I need to fix this without the chicken yum.

  2. This sounds delicious! I've been dying for a recipe for Chipotle's chicken!

  3. Great recipe! I've tried making knock-off versions, too.
