Instant Pot Chicken and Rice Burrito Bowl

This chicken and rice burrito bowl is a new twist on taco night. For one, I’m using chicken and two, you eat it in a bowl rather than with taco shells of some sort. I didn’t know that “bowl food” was a thing until I heard that Meghan and Harry were serving that type of food to their wedding guests. Crazy huh? I am so like the royal family. Ha ha!

Royal or not, this is a quick meal that you can throw together on a weeknight and everyone can pile on the toppings to make it their own.

If you’re following a ketogenic diet, this is perfectly low carb as is. You can up the fat content with whatever toppings you choose.

I hope you make this one and really enjoy it!

Instructions
  1. Combine all spices and set aside.
  2. Set Instant Pot to Saute more, add oil, onion and salt and stir. Cook until onions are translucent.
  3. Mince garlic. Chop chicken into bite-sized pieces, approximately one inch square.
  4. Once onion is translucent, add garlic and stir. Cook for just about one minute then add the chicken.
  5. Add two tablespoons of the spice blend. Save the rest of your spices for another use. Stir well and allow chicken to brown, about 3 minutes.
  6. Add riced cauliflower and stir to combine all ingredients.
  7. Pour in salsa. Rinse the salsa jar to get that additional 1/3 cup of water and add that to your Instant Pot.
  8. Seal lid and set pot to manual high pressure for 12 minutes.
  9. Once cooking time has finished, you can quick release or slow release depending on your time frame.
  10. Dish up some chicken and "rice" and add toppings of your choice.
  11. Enjoy!
Recipe Notes

*You can certainly use real rice if you prefer that over cauliflower rice (still use 2 cups). Just be sure to add 2 cups of additional liquid rather than the 1/3 called for in the recipe.
