These Chicken Burrito Bowls are brought to you by Hidden Valley Ranch. All opinions are my own.
Fiesta Ranch Chicken Burrito Bowls piled with tender, marinated fiesta ranch chicken, cheesy one pot Cilantro Lime Rice with black beans, guilt free Chipotle Ranch Avocado Crema and all your favorite burrito fixins’. You are going to want a very big bowl.
Once upon a time, as in long before I started my blog and just last week, I used “dry ranch seasoning mix” AKA Hidden Valley Ranch dry ranch seasoning mix in a lot of my recipes. And when I say a lot. I mean A LOT:
And clearly I also used it with a lot of bacon.
Needless to say, I have been a long time fan of Hidden Valley ranch seasoning packets, but now, I am an even BIGGER fan because they have a new Greek yogurt ranch salad dressing mix and dip! All those cremas I make just got a whole lot healthier, so you can pile them on.
I kicked off the making of these Fiesta Ranch Chicken Burrito Bowls with Chipotle Avocado Ranch Crema with the newest, latest and greatest Hidden Valley Greek Yogurt Ranch Salad Dressing Mix by adding it to the Ranch Chicken Marinade along with a bevy of my favorite Mexican spices such as chipotle powder, chili powder, cumin and smoked paprika. You can let the chicken marinate for as little as 30 minutes or up to 8 hours to drink in all the fiesta ranch goodness. And this chicken is good. Its tender, moist, tangy and simply fiestalicious!
The chicken sits on a bed of One Pot Cilantro Lime Rice with Black beans infused with cumin, lime, green chilies, and jalapeno that you will have to exercise all your self control not to eat on its own. Especially once you add the cheese. Oh. My. Yum. Cheesy Cilantro Lime Rice and Black Beans. Does it get any better?!
Yes. Yes it does.
Top the cheesy Cilantro Lime Rice with your Fiesta Ranch Chicken and desired toppings such as tomatoes, avocados, mangos tortilla strips, lettuce, etc. I personally looooove mangos and the robust, earthy tangy fiesta ranch chicken together. The sweet with the tangy is match made in heaven. And if you are intimidated by cutting mangos – do’t be, just check out my How to Cut A Mango Post that teaches everything you could ever want to know about mangos!
Now finally, the crowning Chipotle Avocado Ranch Crema. This crema is divine! It’s a simple 3 minute blender concoction of chipotle powder, avocado, lime juice, a hint of mayonnaise (optional), Greek yogurt and Hidden Valley Ranch Greek Yogurt Salad Dressing Mix. You are going to want to douse your bowls in it. And to tell you the truth, I did just that the second after I took my last picture and proceeded to eat every last morsel.
Thank goodness it was guilt free dousing. Thanks to Hidden Valley’s brand new Greek yogurt mix formulation, we get to enjoy the same great ranch flavor but with less fat, more protein and lower calories. Douse away. Douse away and make these Fiesta Ranch Chicken Burrito Bowls ASAP.
Now go claim your bowl. I suggest of serving bowl proportions.
