These Chicken Quinoa Burrito Bowls are a quick and easy meal to make for dinner. Bursting with amazing flavor, these Chicken Burrito Bowls are always a hit when I make them for dinner.
Chicken Quinoa Burrito Bowls
It is no secret that I love my crockpot meals, they make life so much easier with a crazy busy schedule. However there are times where our mornings are so crazy that I forget to put dinner in the crockpot. When that happens I need a quick and easy healthy dinner that everyone will love. That is when I whip out these amazing chicken burrito bowls.
When making these easy chicken burrito bowls I like to use my homemade taco seasoning. You can use the package stuff, but I prefer not to. I like how much fresher homemade taco seasoning tastes then the packages.

Chicken burrito bowls are perfect because everyone can change them up to how they want them if they would like to. Some of my family members like to top the chicken burrito bowls with Homemade Guacamole, others stick to just adding some Creamy Chipotle Sauce. I always have homemade salsa in the fridge, but if you do not then jarred salsa will work just fine too.
I always have black beans, and salsa to put on top. But if you want to add more veggies things like sliced avocado, corn and sour cream also make great toppings too. My youngest is also a cheese addict so she adds a bunch of shredded mexican style cheese on top of hers.
For those who do not like spicy, just omit the jalapeno peppers, or if you are going for a mild spice only add a few jalapenos to the bowl.
To make my life easier I put all of the toppings on the table, everyone starts with a bowl of Quinoa (that is mixed with the seasonings and tomatoes) and the chicken. From there they get to have at it with whatever they want to put on top of theirQuinoa burrito bowl!
If I actually get to meal planning like I prefer to on Sundays and I know I will have a busy week, there are times I make the chicken and Quinoa ahead of time and store it in the fridge. Then I just reheat it when it is time for dinner.
