I like Mexican food. I feel like I say that a lot on Drugstore Divas, but it’s true. My favorite place to go out to eat was a small, hole in the wall Mexican restaurant in Myrtle Beach (that eventually closed due to the state of the world).

Now that it’s closed, I have to create my own Mexican recipes. Sometimes they leave a little to be desired; other times, they are amazing like this Chicken Burrito Bowl.

As Pete would say, this was a “home run hitter.”

The recipe is pretty quick to make. I simplify my life by making my rice in a rice cooker (which is my second favorite kitchen gadget — and that’s a close second to my slow cooker). By the time the rice is done, everything else is ready to go.

The only complaint you might have about this is there are a lot of pots and pans to make it. I really wanted everything to be separate for presentation purposes, so I had to cook almost all of it separately. Personally, I don’t mind a little extra clean up for a pretty plate (or, in this case, bowl).

How To Make A Chicken Burrito Bowl:

Make your rice in the rice cooker (a good rule of thumb is a 1:2 ratio of rice to water).
