Do you love getting a big burrito from Chipotle, Freebirds or (here in Texas) Bullritos?

Oh my gosh, it is one of my FAVORITE things to eat! So filling, so many flavors.

Burritos make this Texas girl’s heart happy.

(FYI, if you like Salsa Chicken, you might check out these Ridiculously Easy Chicken Tacos!) 

However, have you ever calculated the nutritional info on those bad boys?

Well, if you want to continue eating them…I recommend you do NOT.

You might get more nutritional bang for your buck by simply omitting the tortilla, but you still have the 2 + cups of rice to deal with.

You might say, just get a salad?

The thing is, if I wanted a salad…I would have gone some place to get a salad. I want a burrito darnit!

This Salsa Chicken bowl combines all of my favorite parts of a restaurant quality burrito bowl with a fraction of the carbs!

It comes together SO quickly too!

Salsa Chicken Bowl with Cilantro Lime Cauliflower Rice

Ingredients:

  • Steamable cauliflower rice in a bag
  • 3 limes
  • Cilantro
  • Butter (1 Tablespoon)
  • Chicken breast
  • Jar of salsa
  • Guacamole
  • Sour cream
  • Shredded cheddar

Directions:

  1. First off, you need to make the chicken. Just throw your chicken breasts (I used 5 thin sliced chicken breasts) into your slow cooker (4-6 hours on low), Instant Pot (just press the chicken button) or Ninja Foodi (15 minutes) with the jar of salsa (you can reserve a bit of salsa if you want some to top your burrito bowl!).
  2. Meanwhile, go ahead and steam your cauli rice per the directions on the bag.
  3. Melt the butter and then add your cauli rice to a saucepan
  4. Next, add lime juice and salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Top with cilantro (this is by taste!) and put your lid on, keep warm on low until your chicken is finished.
  6. Shred chicken in your kitchen aid (or with 2 forks)
  7. Open cauli rice pot and stir
  8. Add cauli rice to your bowl, then top with chicken.
  9. Now top with guacamole, sour cream and cheddar   

Voila! Enjoy!

You can also use the carnitas recipe from this post in lieu of chicken and it tastes amazing as well!
