Some people forget about the slow cooker when the weather starts to get warm, but I'm sharing this Slow Cooker Chicken and Pinto Bean Burrito Bowl from The Perfect Pantry to remind you how you can make seasonally-appropriate food in the slow cooker all year round. Lydia is one of those experienced cooks who's learned to use her slow cooker when she doesn't want to heat up the house, and even if it's not quite that hot yet, this sounds like a perfect season-spanning dish.
In this dish boneless chicken cooks in a tomato-chile-lime mixture until it's falling apart tender, and then beans are added to soak up the flavor. The chicken and pinto bean mixture is served over rice with toppings like avocado, grated cheese, cilantro, and lime juice to add at the table. Doesn't that sound good?
Ingredients for this CrockPot Recipe:
- boneless, skinless chicken breasts
