    Why I Love These Chicken Taco Bowls…

    •  You can throw it all in a crock pot (in less than 5 minutes).
    • It’s some-what healthy!
    • You can use brown rice or quinoa to make it healthier.
    • You can freeze the leftovers. Just place the chicken in a freezer zip lock bag and pull it out when you need a quick meal.
    • The leftover shredded chicken also works great in tacos or burritos!
    • You can customize with your favorite toppings.
    • My kids love them (which is the main reason I love to make these so often).

    Recipe Notes

    When I’m in a hurry I’ll throw a brown rice bag in the microwave (they’re from Costco and they only take 3 minutes to cook)… but if I have some time I will make cilantro lime rice (the BEST).
