can Old El Paso™ enchilada sauce
corn or flour tortillas
In a medium saucepot, bring water to a boil and gently drop in your chicken tenderloins and cook through, about 7-10 minutes.
In the meantime, chop up your ingredients (olives, red onions).
Preheat oven to 425°F and take a muffin pan and flip it over on its underside. Place a tortilla in between 2 cups to form a 4-leaf clover type shape. You can get about 3 on a muffin pan.
Place in oven and bake for 7-10 minutes, until golden brown and shape holds. Remove and set aside.
Once chicken is done boiling, remove and put in a bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Turn it on medium speed to shred the chicken.
Once chicken is shred, pour the enchilada sauce all over, stir to mix.
Assemble your bowls by layering on the chicken and ingredients.
Chipotle Chicken Enchilada Bowls
Whenever I am doing a Whole30 and want to eat something (like enchiladas in this case) I always find a way to get my fix. One of the best ways around it is to make it into a “bowl.” And these are delicious Chipotle Chicken Enchilada Bowls.
There is nothing like a big bowl filled with all of the goods to satisfy you for dinner. In fact, this enchilada bowl is so dang good, it might actually be better than these enchiladas! Actually, it’s probably a tie…but you get what I’m saying. It’s good.
I sometimes like to stuff poblano peppers enchilada style however, in this case, there was already plenty of heat from the chipotle enchilada sauce that I decided to just make them into delicious bowls. Which I also find perfect for summer!!
Cinco de Mayo is Friday and if you’re doing Whole30, try setting up an “Enchilada bowl” bar with these Chipotle Chicken Enchilada Bowls if you’re entertaining. Make a beautiful arrangement of things people could add to their bowl and let them fix their own. Fun!!
Keto Chicken Enchilada Bowls
Keto Chicken Enchilada Bowls are quick and simple to prepare, super comforting, low carb meals.
I kept hearing about and seeing ads for those Panera grain bowls, and of course, via their subliminal mind control, I started craving one, lol.
So, the natural solution was to create a keto, grain-free version of my own.
Keto Chicken Enchilada Bowls was my quick to assemble solution.
Wanting this to be a quick and easy recipe, I purchased some time-saving items at the store to make prep a breeze.
- I used simple to prepare frozen pre-riced cauliflower from the frozen food section at the grocery store to save preparation time.
- I also used organic pre-cooked grilled chicken breast strips from the deli section at the grocery store.
- This lower-carb, gluten-free, Hatch Red Enchilada Sauce is delicious, easy to find, and a real time saver as opposed to making homemade enchilada sauce.
But, if you want to make your own low carb enchilada sauce, this low carb red enchilada sauce recipe is a good one.
The best part is always the toppings! You can adjust these or omit these to suit your taste.
The toppings I used are:
- Grated cheeses
- Sliced black olives
- sliced jalapenos
- avocado slices
- sour cream
I love how the cauliflower rice sops up the enchilada sauce and oh the deliciousness of melted cheeses with the creamy avocado and sour cream. Yes, this is a healthy fat meal!

Chicken Burrito Bowls Recipe
Does anyone have a secret for learning to love vegetables? Especially raw?
I have tried, I really have. I am turning 30 years old and still don’t eat enough vegetables. It is very much still a work in progress!
The only way that I can eat all my vegetables is if they are stacked in a big yummy salad, thrown into a soup, or dunked in a creamy dip.
Thankfully, this recipe falls into one of those categories and I can get all my daily servings of vegetables in one quick fix! And bonus- it tastes amazing!
My kids liked it because they could choose what “colors” went on their plates and I liked it because it let them try lots of different vegetables. I added chicken, but this would be perfect for a meatless meal too- you could even add extra beans if you want.
Chicken Shortcut for your Chicken Burrito Bowls
We’re all about shortcuts if you can’t tell! One of our favorite shortcuts is using a rotisserie chicken from the deli, especially in recipes like this one.
This recipe calls for chicken that’s already cooked, so buying cooked chicken is obviously the easiest method! Most deli’s will sell a rotisserie chicken already pulled off the bone, so make sure you check there before you buy yourself a whole chicken.
If you’re wanting to make it at home, throwing a few chicken breasts in the slow cooker with some chicken broth is another great and easy method.
Cook your breasts for about 3-4 hours, or until no longer pink. You can chop, shred, or leave them whole and use them throughout the week in recipes just like this one.
How to Meal Prep Chicken Burrito Bowls
Whether you’re trying to eat healthy, or just looking for a way to save time, meal prepping is always a good idea. This meal can easily be used during your meal prepping by following these basic steps:
- In your meal prepping container (we LOVE these ones —-> Meal Prep Containers) spoon chicken, black beans, corn, tomatoes, pepper, onion, and any additional desired toppings on one side.
- On the other half of your container, fill it with chopped romaine lettuce.
- Place the lid on your container and keep in the fridge for up to 3-4 days. Any longer than that may result in wilted lettuce.
- When ready to eat, top with Chipotle or dressing of your choice, shake up container, and you’re good to go.

The sauce mixture and chicken can also be frozen and prepared ahead of time so when it’s time to reheat ( On the stove top I would probably let it thaw and then heat in a pot ) you can just add your fresh toppings and a steamer bag of cauliflower rice. So Easy! Pretty simple!
