Slow Cooker Chicken Burrito Bowls with Spiralized Sweet Potato Rice

Slow Cooker Chicken Burrito Bowls with Spiralized Sweet Potato Rice

Now that Thanksgiving is over and hopefully the leftovers are finished, it’s time to get back into the healthy swing of things!

Since I refuse to “detox” (aka juice cleanse or eat raw veggies for a day or something crazy like that), I instead stick to eating whole, real ingredients and focus on nourishing myself properly so my body’s digestion and basic function resumes normalcy.

Yes, I ate a little too much pie. :)

And now, it’s totally slow cooker season, and I’m so excited to develop some more slow cooker recipes for you all. To start the slow cookery, I present to you this healthy version of a chicken burrito bowl, fully loaded with all the good stuff, and minus the stuff that doesn’t do much for you (like a flour burritto and white rice.)

Slow Cooker Chicken Burrito Bowls with Spiralized Sweet Potato Rice

I love burrito bowls – I always ask for my burrito in a lettuce bowl. Not as satisfying as a true burrito, but it gets the trick done.

However, this new version with spiralized sweet potato rice let’s you have all the great same textures and flavors of a burrito bowl without the carb coma afterwards! And, it fuels you with every bite.

If you don’t eat chicken, just omit that part of the recipe and focus on the veggies – I’d add some extra veggies like spiralized bell peppers, but other than that, follow the recipe!

Slow Cooker Chicken Burrito Bowls with Spiralized Sweet Potato Rice

This is definitely going into our monthly dinner rotation – it’s flavorful, colorful, hearty, and seasonal, thanks to the sweet potatoes.

Top with some avocado and you’ll never go to Chipotle (or wherever you get your burrito bowls) again!

6 hrTotal Time

Save Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 to 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 14.5-ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup chicken stock, divided, plus more if needed
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • 3 large sweet potatoes
  • 1 15-ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro, to garnish
  • 2 avocadoes, peeled, pitted and diced
  • ¼ cup diced scallions

Instructions

  1. Combine the chicken breasts, diced tomatoes, half of the chicken stock, chili powder, salt, cumin, and oregano in the bowl of a slow cooker. Make sure the chicken is covered, and add additional stock if needed. Cover with the lid and cook on high for 2 hours.
  2. Meanwhile, peel the sweet potatoes. Spiralize them with Blade D. Then, transfer the sweet potato noodles to a food processor and pulse until rice-like, working in batches. Rice all of the sweet potato noodles and set aside.
  3. Remove the lid and add the sweet potato rice, black beans, frozen corn, and the remaining chicken broth. Replace the lid and continue cooking on high for another 2 hours. Cooking is done when the rice is tender.
  4. Using tongs, remove the chicken from the slow cooker and shred, using two forks. Add the shredded chicken back in and stir to combine. Taste and adjust the seasoning, if needed.
  5. Divide the burrito mixture into bowls and top with cilantro, avocado, and scallions.

  1. oh yes!! excited to hear you will be developing more slow cooker recipes :)

  2. Michele DeVinney :

    Am I completely missing the “print” icon?

  3. Judy Heffelfinger :

    No print button again? Please fix this problem. I really want to try this dish. I guess I’ll have to write I’d down like last time. I’m looking forward to trying a slow cooker recipe!

  4. Sounds lovely.could you also put instructions for those not using slow cooker.
    Thanks for all amazing recipes.

  5. Hi i am in the UK and also no print button sounds silly but makes life easier :)
    keep up the good work Ali i am a big fan
    XX

  6. All you have to do is highlight the recipe with your mouse and then choose print option :)

    • Michele DeVinney :

      The format is screwed up if you do that. It’s also possible to copy/paste, but even that isn’t as clean as the “print” versions she’s had in the past. (I.E. when I right-click on the recipe, it’s 8 pages!)

  7. I REALLY WANT TO PRINT THIS RECIPE! CAN YOU ADD A PRINT BUTTON? THANKS!

  8. what do you do if its too soupy/watery after cooking for 4 hours?

  9. I made this today. CANNOT wait for more slow cooker recipes! Thank you Ali!❤️

  10. This looks very tasty.
    That said, what is the advantage of spiralizing?
    I get the same tast and look of food when I give it a light chopping in my chopper!!
    .
    Just wondering why I need this??

  11. The beginning instructions say 6-8 hrs cook time but the detailed instructions only say 2 and 2, am I missing something? I really want to make this and don’t want to mess it up! Looks delish! :-)

  12. Hi Ali, I’m a fellow downtown Jersey City resident (living in Dixon Mills) and was wondering where you get your avocados? I love JC, but I’ve yet to find a good place for avocados nearby–everywhere I’ve tried the fruit is either rock hard or already past ripe/mushy. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

  13. stacey Campbell :

    Can you put the sweet potato rice in with the chicken from the beginning? Or would it be too mushy? Just thinking about making this on work days and wouldn’t be able to start it for 2 hours and then come back to it to add sweet potato.

  14. This looks delicious. Can’t wait to try it. You have the best recipes! We haven’t eaten rice or pasta in months!

  15. I made this for my very picky kids tonight and they liked it. I ending up starting the chicken in the crock pot on low for 6 hours. Then i added the other ingredients on high for two hours and was great!!!

  16. do you have any alternative cooking times for a working mom?

  17. I almost want to say this is my favorite recipe so far! Amazing !

  18. Judy Chevalier :

    Hi Ali. Love the variety of recipes you are offering. So inspiring – and delicious! The problem I am having is with the sweet potatoes. Here our large sweet potatoes are heavier than 1 1/2 pounds – or we can have very small ones! Would you be able to let us know either the volume of spiralized items we should have or give an idea of the weight that, for example, 3 large vegetables should weigh? Thanks so much,

  19. This says 6-8 servings, but could you specify what amount goes into each serving, in case I am not cooking for 6-8 people? I’m cooking for 2-3. Is it about 1/2 cup?

    Thank you!

    • I should have added that I’m saving the leftovers, so I wouldn’t be dividing it into 6-8 servings — probably 2 or 3 right away. Just trying to calculate my nutrition/points! Thank you
