Crockpot Chicken Burrito Bowls

It’s seriously going to be almost 80 degrees here guys!  It only March!  I still need at least one more good day of snowboarding in the mountains.  It makes me sad to think I might have to wait until next season.  One of our favorite things to do during spring skiing is take our portable grill up and have a BBQ in the parking lot.  It may sound a little rough, but hey,  Colorado is a different place, and we all have a little redneck in us.  I guess all this warmer weather does get me excited for camping.

Easy Crockpot Shredded Chicken Burrito Bowls

I’m alway up for easy.  Who isn’t?  I know you work long days and just want something quick, healthy and delicious to throw together after work.  I made this recipe the other day because its easy and seemed to hit the spot.  Shredded crockpot chicken can be used for a ton of recipes.  For this one, I was craving one of those burrito bowls from  Chipotle.  I wanted a healthier and lighter version that didn’t make me feel weighed down after eating it.  The best part about making this chicken is the leftovers.  I plan on posting several other recipes where I use this easy crockpot chicken.  I hope you enjoy!
