FAQs About This Recipe

Should this recipe cook covered or uncovered?

You’ll want to keep the lid on your jumbo cooker while this recipe is cooking. Open it every few minutes to give the recipe a quick stir. This will prevent the ingredients (especially the rice) from sticking to the pan and burning. As this recipe gets close to finishing and/or when there isn’t much liquid remaining in the pan, you’ll want to make sure you’re stirring the pot more regularly.

How’d you store this recipe?

We use 3.4 cup meal prep containers to store these burrito bowls. We’d recommend using airtight glass meal prep containers if you’re planning to store this in the refrigerator for more than 1-2 days.

Tips From the Kitchen

Adjust to your preferences: In this recipe, we basically just throw everything in it. Feel free to omit any ingredients you want… Or add any ingredients you want to. 

Use more chicken: We used 2 lb of chicken in this recipe. If you’re looking for more meat and/or a higher protein burrito bowl, you could safely double the amount of chicken in this recipe without making any additional changes.

Control your spiciness level: We used mild diced tomatoes and medium salsa for this recipe. If you’re looking for more heat, definitely go with the hot versions.
