Vegan Copycat Chipotle Chicken Burrito Bowl

Vegan Copycat Chipotle Chicken Burrito Bowl

Cilantro-lime rice, chipotle chicken, and savory beans makes for an even more flavorful version of the fast-casual favorite.

Serves: 4

If you’ve gotten a little bored of the same few vegan options at Chipotle, this vegan chicken bowl from the Vegan Fast Food cookbook is reminiscent of the original, with much more flavor and vibrancy. Add toppings such as grilled bell peppers, pico de gallo, roasted corn salsa, black olives, or pickled jalapeños.

What you need:

For the vegan chicken:
1 tablespoon mushroom seasoning
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon ground cumin
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 tablespoons chipotles in adobo
3 cloves garlic, peeled
Juice of ½ lime
½ cup vegetable stock
¼ teaspoon salt
1 (8-ounce) package vegan chicken, chopped into bite-sized pieces

For the beans:
2 (15-ounce) cans black beans, drained
1 jalapeño, diced
1 tablespoon taco seasoning 
Juice of ½ lime
¼ teaspoon salt

For the rice:
4 cups cooked rice
Juice of 1 lime
⅓ cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons vegan butter, melted
2 cloves garlic, minced
¼ teaspoon salt

For assembly:
1 avocado, cubed
1 cup pico de gallo
1 cup roasted corn
½ cup vegan sour cream
Hot sauce, for serving

What you do:

  1. For the chicken, to a blender, add mushroom seasoning, coriander, cumin, cinnamon, chipotles, garlic, lime juice, stock, and salt, and blend until smooth. 
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook chicken until lightly browned, then add sauce. Cook for 5 minutes, or until chicken is cooked thoroughly and sauce is fragrant and slightly thickened.
