Instant Pot Chicken Burrito Bowl (Paleo)

Is there anything better than just tossing everything in the Instant Pot and letting it do it’s thing? Before I went Paleo I used to make Damn Delicious’ 20 Minute Burrito Bowls ALL THE TIME. But now I can’t have rice, corn or beans. What’s a gal to do? Maker her own Paleo 20 Minute Burrito Bowl recipe obviously. This Paleo version is packed with veggies and replaces the white rice with cauliflower rice. To be honest with you, I’m typically not a huge fan of using cauliflower as a rice replacement in most recipes because it ends up tasting too cauliflowery to me. But with this recipe it really absorbs the salsa and taco seasoning flavors.

*This recipe obviously tastes the best with real taco seasoning and salsa, but I’ve added notes on how to make it AIP compliant if you haven’t started any reintros yet.

  • While Instant Pot cooks, steam both bags of cauliflower.
