Preparation

  1. In medium bowl, stir together Corn Salsa ingredients. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. In 2-quart saucepan, add rice (from burrito bowl kit), and water and butter as called for on package. Heat to boiling, stirring frequently. Reduce heat; cover and simmer about 20 minutes or until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat; let stand 5 minutes.
  3. In 10-inch nonstick skillet, stir together chicken, oil as called for on package and seasoning mix (from burrito bowl kit) until well coated. Cook over medium-high heat 10 to 12 minutes, stirring occasionally, until very little liquid remains and chicken is cooked through and begins to brown.
  4. Divide rice among 4 serving bowls. Top with chicken, beans, corn salsa, guacamole and queso blanco sauce (from burrito bowl kit).

Expert Tips

  • Our delicious Copycat Chipotle™ Chicken Burrito Bowls recipe needs guac on top! Homemade guacamole is easy to make. Just stir together mashed avocado, chopped red onion, jalapeño and cilantro, and season with a touch of lime juice and salt.
  • Whole or chopped fresh cilantro leaves make a lovely and delicious garnish.
  • When using raw red onions, rinsing chopped onions under cold water helps take the "bite" out of the otherwise strong flavor.
