Is it kind of wrong that I want a bowl of this chicken burrito bowl with the pad thai and fried rice and drunken noodles that I’ve been having here?

Because I’m not quite homesick just yet.

But I still need a bowl of this right now. With a cold Corona. And a fresh lime wedge.

Okay, so maybe I’m getting just a tiny bit homesick. But only because this is my favorite burrito bowl ever.

This burrito bowl was the first Instant Pot recipe I ever tested that converted me to the IP cult in 0.497295 seconds.

So you know it has to be good.

The chicken comes out perfectly tender but the rice is the true hero – soaked with all the burito bowl flavors from the IP magic.

Serve with fresh cilantro leaves, a lime wedge, and crushed tortilla chips, if desired.

Or if you’re anything like Ben, a whole bag of crushed tortilla chips.

  1. How would you make this if you don’thave a InstantPot?

  2. This looks deelish. Suggestions for those of us without an instant pot?

  3. Hello…I would like to make this recipe. Suggestions on cooking time if made in a crock pot?

    Thank you…Lisa

  4. Hi. This look great! CAn I use brown rice? will that change cooking time and/or liquid needed?

  5. What if you don’t have a pressure cooker?

  6. Hi Chungah,

    I wanted to tell you I love your recipes. They taste great and are easy to make. Thank you for sharing. Is there a place where I can find the nutrition info on each recipe? I noticed some recipes have them and some don’t. I count calories so that information is helpful.

    Thanks so much!

    • Nutritional information is actually provided only for select and new recipes at this time. However, if it is not available for a specific recipe, I recommend using free online resources at your discretion (you can Google “nutritional calculator”) to obtain such information. Hope that helps!

  7. Can I make this in the crock pot if I don’t have an instant pot? It looks delicious!

    • Unfortunately, without further recipe testing, I cannot answer with certainty. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.

  8. If you didn’t want to use pre packaged taco seasoning what would you substitute it with?

  9. we just got an instant pot, so I’m totally adding this to the list of things to try soon!

  10. Is there a way to make this in a crockpot?

  11. can i use a slow cooker since i don’t have an ip pot?

    • Unfortunately, without further recipe testing, I cannot answer with certainty. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.

  12. What is an Instant Pot?

  13. I don’t see any nutrition info provided for this recipe….

  14. So I have an allergy to tomatoes – makes salsa difficult – I know a burrito bowl is not a burrito bowl without salsa but if we just call it a delicious chicken dish – do you have a suggestion for a replacement of the salsa – or failing that if I leave it out completely I assume I would need to add more liquid for the rice?

    • Unfortunately, without further recipe testing, I cannot answer with certainty. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.

    • Might you try either a salsa verde (made with tomatillos) or a mango salsa in place of the usual tomato-based salsa? Tomatillos are in the nightshade family along with potatoes and tomatoes, but I’ve known people who are allergic to one and not the others. Just a thought.

  15. looks delicious as always. you always inspire me to cook away in my tiny kitchen! thank you for sharing!

  16. thanks for this recipe and the non insta pot recipe too, I’m always happy to skip the tortilla but love all of the flavors that go into it!

    • I’m a very beginner level instant pot-ista (I’m still honestly a little afraid of it) but I saw this recipe and was excited to give it a try! Unfortunately, I think I made a beginners mistake of adjusting the recipe incorrectly. I wanted to make this dish as meal prep for the week’s worth of lunch to take to work so I added an extra cup of rice to give it a little more body. To level it out I also added an extra cup of chicken broth hoping I was introducing enough liquid. While pressurizing And before it even got to full pressure to start the 10 minute time clock it indicated that the food was burning. I followed instructions online that said cancel, vent, add more liquid, try again. Again “food burning” this time much faster than the first. I think the rice got to the bottom after adding more liquid for the second try which actually did burn a little. I’m disappointed it didn’t work as planned. On the bright side the rice and chicken were cooked so the food was salvageable and still yummy! A long winded story to lead me to the question, where did I go wrong and what should I have done differently if I’d still like a higher rice ratio?

  17. Why the no stirring after adding rice?  Should it sit on top of everything else?  Keep the instant pot recipes coming!!  We love ours!!  Busy families should get one!!!

    • Yes, the rice should not be stirred in. If it is mixed, the rice can burn. Hope that helps!

      • My rice on the top was dry and hard… what do you think I did wrong? I had to throw it all out. 🙁

        • It’s hard to say as many factors can be at play here. Did you follow the recipe exactly as written without any substitutions? What kind of rice did you use? What size Instant Pot did you use?

          • Same thing happened to me and I had to throw the whole dinner out as well. I have a 6 quart Instapot and I followed the recipe to the T.

          • When you do the recipe, do you rinse your rice at all? Do you press it so it is touching the liquid after adding it to the pot? I had the same issue with a dry uncooked rice, I did mine in a 6qt instant pot.

          • I’m so frustrated – I don’t think anyone has been able to make this recipe. I tried TWICE and both times it burned. I also followed your recipe exactly. Altho first time I did stir the rice and the second time I did not both resulted in burned rice on the bottom of my instant pot. I think you should try your recipes more than once before posting. This was such a disaster and so much food was wasted. Best of luck to you and anyone trying to make this fiasco. 

          • Sara, this recipe has been made at least a dozen times by myself and my team as I only post recipes that have been professionally tested. I am sorry you had a terrible outcome but again, there are more than a dozen reviews with successful results here. If you also watch the instructional video, the recipe is made exactly as written, and it worked! 🙂

            Please keep in mind that user error can be the culprit here. Even you admit that you did not follow the recipe exactly as written by stirring in the rice the first time. Also, let’s try and spread some kindness here.

        • I had the same issue. Perhaps it’s because I doubled the recipe. It fits in the pot, no problem, but only half my rice was cooked. Next time I will add more liquid.

          I’m not sure why we’d get all frustrated an throw things out. It’s completely salvageable. I just haven’t decided on my method of salvage.

    • Same here. . Rice is piled on top and totally dry.

  18. I just made this in the IP.  It’s delicious but I think I need more than 1/4 cup broth with the taco seasoning.  Some of it stuck to the bottom (even though I stirred it in) and the valve never came up so steam was escaping.  I waited the 10 minutes and did a quick release and although some of the rice was a little chewy, it was wonderful.  Can I add more liquid in the first step–maybe 1/2 cup?

  19. Do you think this recipe could be double as long as it doesn’t go above the max fill line in the instant pot? Thanks

    • Unfortunately, without further recipe testing, I cannot answer with certainty. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.

    • So I thought I’d just throw this out there for anyone who might find this recipe down the road, after successfully making this recipe exactly as written dozens of times I tried doubling it for a crowd and it failed spectacularly in my 6 qt instant pot. Even though I doubled everything precisely, it kept burning on the bottom and wouldn’t come to pressure.

      • Mine did the same thing! So frustrating. I thought doubling would be no problem. I even added extra broth to be sure but after getting the burn message 3 times I gave up on the instapot. I put in a large skillet and simmered to finish the rice. I’ve had the instapot for a few months. I have followed many instapot specific recipes and I get the burn message almost every time! I’m about to throw it in the trash!!!

  20. I made this today–my first ever Instant Pot meal! It was almost too easy to assemble and the results were delicious. The only change I made was to omit the green chiles in deference to my husband and father-in-law, both of whom have issues with anything remotely “spicy”. I just added a little chipotle to mine and all was good.

  21. I followed this recipe exactly and did not mix it the rice but instead put it on top with the last of the chicken broth.
    When I opened the instant-pot everything was cooked except the rice. It was still hard as rock sitting on top of the cooked chicken. I even added and extra 1/4 cup of chicken broth because I didn’t think there was enough liquid to cook the rice. Any idea where I went wrong?
    I had to mix the rice in and put it back on for another 10 minutes.

    • Oh no – what kind of Instant Pot are you using? Was the valve set in place?

    • I have found that it helps to make sure the rice is wet. Although I don’t stir it, I press it down a little with the spoon so all the rice is contacting some liquid. I also always rinse my rice first. Hope that helps!

    • Same thing happened to me!!!

    • I never have success with cooking rice in the instant pot at the same time as everything else. I just cook mine separately and add it in before serving. Works great for me!

      • I’m planning on cooking my rice separately too! Do you use less liquid in the instant pot when there’s no rice? Thanks!

    • I was soooo tempted to stir the rice since I was worried about it not being cooked properly, but I figured the recipe was written the way it was for a reason so I left it alone. I’m bummed to hear about everyone else’s experience with it, since mine turned out perfectly. I feel like maybe there isn’t enough liquid in some of these cooking malfunctions, as I’d imagine the steam from everything cooking inside is what cooks the rice.

  22. I make some form of burrito bowls once a week but usually have tons of dirty dishes. This was a great way to make them quickly and lots less clean-up. Everyone liked the recipe. My son ate his in a wrap. Thanks!

  23. Two of my friends and I tried this recipe, all with the same result….the BURN indicator came on.  We followed the recipe exactly.  Very frustrating!  Loved the idea but it didn’t work for any of us.

    • Oh no – I am so sorry to hear that. Did you stir in the rice at all? If the rice is stirred in and reaches the bottom of the pot in any way, it will certainly burn. To avoid any kind of burning, the rice should sit on top of the mixture.

      • Didn’t stir the rice. Put it in last along with the 3/4 cup of water just like the recipe said and didn’t stir. The problem seemed to be that 1/4 cup of liquid wasn’t enough to avoid the burning. On the plus side, I got it all to cook through and the family loved it but I’d like to avoid the BURN warning next time! LOL!

        • Gotcha! What size Instant Pot did you use?

        • Hello, Did the recipe change? The recipe here calls for 1 cup of broth to be added to the chicken and taco seasoning, not with the rice, and then stirred. Water is not mentioned anywhere, and the rice was to be added by itself, not with any liquid. I am confused.

    • I had the same problem in my 8 quart duo. I ended up putting the mixture in a Pyrex bowl on the trivet and cooked it pot-in-pot. That was the only way I could cook it without the “burn” coming on. 

  24. This was great!  I made exactly as instructed and it was my first time using my new insta pot.  It came out perfectly.

    Would love to see more instapot recipes.

  25. I have an 8qt and my friends, who had the same trouble, have 6 qts.

    I did get it to cook by opening it, adding more liquid and cooking another 5 minutes and it really was good. Will try it again and add more liquid. Just wondering if you knew why it happened for the 3 of us.

    • It’s hard to say! I tested this numerous times both in my 6-qt Instant Pot and another 6-qt pressure cooker of a different brand, and I did not have issues with either machines.

  26. These were so good! My picky 6 year old is begging me to make them again. He took the leftovers in a thermos to school the next day and was disappointed we didn’t have any later in the week! Thanks for another awesome recipe!

  27. This recipe does not include enough liquid, completely scalded and burned the bottom of my instant pot. I would revise.

  28. Thanks for sharing! We have cooked several of your recipes and they never disappoint!!

  29. I was very apprehensive to try this recipe (and others like it) due to the many comments of people receiving burn messages. However, I finally tried it and it worked out great! I added cayenne pepper and changed the green chilies to jarred jalapenos and used wild rice with long grain white rice, as that’s what I had on hand. I will make this again!

  30. Just made this in the Instant Pot. It was good. I had no problems with the rice being burnt or not done. Followed directions as written. Next time I will have avocado and black olives to garnish. Thanks for the delicious easy recipe.

  31. Omg I followed directions exactly and it keeps saying burn over and over again.   This is so frustrating.   I feel like all the food is wasted.  Is there a way to finish cooking it in the oven?

    • I actually ended up finishing it up in the oven at 350 degrees for 20 min.  Turned out great.  

    • Angela, I am so sorry you are having such difficulty. What a bummer! Nothing should be burning if the rice is left on top of the mixture. May I ask what Instant Pot you used and what size?

      • Lots of the new versions of IPs actually burn things quite quickly. I really think that may be part of the problem here. I used to have one of the original models and it worked like a charm! It broke before the warranty was up and they replaced it with a newer version. The new version burns everything. Recipes that I made previously, burn for me in this one. I’ve learned that if I add 1/2 to 1 c. extra liquid it helps, but it’s still kind of an issue.

        • I think that you’re on to something here as I have seen the ‘followed everything exactly and still it burned’ comments on so many instant pot recipes now. One thing I want to encourage is for commenters who experience this to include the IP model number in their comment posts. (It’s right the at the top of the small label on the unit).

          I have had this happen to many of the recipes I’ve tried and have taken to pot-in-pot when that’s doable. For the record, it’s a Duo, version 3.

  32. I’m new to instant pot cooking so followed this recipe exactly. My instant pot heated up and within one minute of cooking time I got a “burn” message. I checked the pot as per manual instructions and started again. Same thing happened. I ended up with a burnt pot bottom so removed the food, put it in a casserole dish and popped it in the oven. Can you give me any idea what might have gone wrong. 

    • Marilyn, did you stir in the rice? It is very important for the rice to sit on top of the mixture. If the rice is stirred in and reaches the bottom of the pot, the rice will brown too quickly, which will signal a BURN message.

  33. Made this last night. After reading comments I added 1/4th cup broth. Everything cooked perfectly, it was a little wet but that was my fault for being nervous and not just following the recipe as stated. I also used spices from my cabinet since I forgot to buy taco spice and kidney beans because I forgot to buy black beans as well. I will definitely make this again.

  34. I made this tonight and it turned out great! The rice was cooked perfectly and everything tasted delicious. I topped it with refried beans and lettuce and used Penzeys bold taco seasoning. Yum!

  35. This was my 1st instant pot meal that I made I love your recipes. Because i am one of those that don’t really read the instructions (lol) I bought a large 1/2 chicken breast. so I just used my own taco mix added salt and pepper put it on the bottom of the pan and did the rest as instructed to do so. Kind of. Once I added the rice on top I then added the salsa and chicken stock afraid it would not have cooked I just wanted to make sure it was moist. Once it was done I took the chicken out and just shredded it! So moist!

  36. This recipe use regular rice not quick cook or minute rice, right? Thanks!

  37. I followed this recipe exactly and used my Instant Pot, and it burned to the bottom of the pot. I kept getting the BURN warning, so I eventually had to just turn it off and the chicken wasn’t done, and I had a black crust in the bottom of the pot.

    • Same thing happened to me. Such a bummer 🙁 I even tried adding like 1 extra cup of broth but I still kept getting the BURN message and then it turned out like burrito soup. Sad.

      • The trick is to not stir in the rice, as mentioned in step 3. Simply add on top of the ingredients already in the pot and add the broth. If you stir and mix the rice into the other ingredients, it will burn. So sorry it didn’t turn out for you the first time around!

  38. I have a 6 quart Duo Plus Instant Pot. I followed the recipe exactly as written and it came out perfectly. I think it would have been too soupy if I would have added more liquid.

    For my teenagers I served it with fried flour tortilla bowls I bought at the bakery with shredded lettuce on the bottom and the chicken on top.  For the adults I served it alone. I will be making this again. It was easy and quick.

  39. My husband and I LOVED this recipe. I read the previous comments and was concerned about the possibility of getting a burn message, but I followed the recipe as written and didn’t have any problem. The only change I made was using instant brown rice instead of long grain white rice, and it came out great. Thanks for a great recipe! 

  40. I made this earlier this week.  It was the second time I’ve made it and the whole family loves this recipe. Looking forward to more Instant Pot recipes 😀

  41. If I do not want to add the rice should I still use the additional 3/4 cup of chicken broth? 

  42. I have made this twice now, exactly as recipe states, and it’s has turned out PERFECTLY each time!! It is so good! And I cannot state enough how much I love just dumping it all in, and turning it on. Would love to see more “dump” recipes for the instant pot on here, as I’m a full time working mom of a 2 year old. Cooking dinner is the hardest part of my day, and this recipe made it so much easier! Thanks! All of your recipes are wonderful. Can’t wait to try more!

  43. I made this tonight and it turned out great! I followed the recipe as written but substituted brown rice instead of white. For those wondering, I cooked for 24 minutes in my Instant Pot with the brown rice and it turned out perfect. Thanks for the great recipe!

  44. Loved this recipe! For once it’s nice to find one that I didn’t need to fiddle with and it came out perfect. I couldn’t believe how tender the chicken was and we really don’t like breast meat so that was a pleasant surprise. This is a keeper! Thanks Chungah.

  45. Can you add bell peppers and onions to this? Also. I have Jasmine rice. Would that still work?

    • Yes, Elizabeth, you can substitute or add ingredients as you wish. However, the cooking times may vary when changing ingredients, so please use your best judgement adjusting the recipe. Have fun!

  46. I doubled the recipe, cut the rice and broth a bit. Worked perfectly. My instantpot can be a bit tricky. Will definitely make again. Thanks. Next time I may add cut sweet potatoes.

  47. I have a 3 quart instant pot (just two of us in the house). Would I just halve this recipie?

  48. This was delicious! It was nice that it was a whole meal in one pot too. Thanks, Chungah!

  49. My pot never came to pressure. Always would get the burn message even after adding more liquid After 5th attempt, I took it out and have it in the oven now to finish cooking. Hopefully rice and chicken cook through nicely. Smells good.
    I think next time I will mix taco seasoning and broth so taco seasoning dissolves, then add the chicken and follow remaining recipe as follows. I had put in the chicken, then taco seasoning then broth. Thinking taco seasoning needs to be dissolved in the broth before adding to the pot otherwise it will stick to the bottom of the pot and burn message will appear.
    Will try another day hopefully with better results

  50. How much time do I add if I want to double the recipe ?

  51. This was delicious! Thanks!

  52. Can this be made with dry beans?

  53. How much liquid should i use for an 8 QT instant pot?  And i wont be adding the rice, i only have the parboiled kind.

  54. Does the rice have to be cooked first or can I just dump in it dry?

  55. This is the first time I tried the IP. Your recipe sounded great and I loved that it wouldn’t take long either. I had a problem though, I thought cooking time was 10 minutes. I must’ve done something wrong because I set it manual for 10 minutes but an hour and half later I had to finally turn it off. The bottom was starting to burn. Not sure why it took so long. What am I doing wrong? It WAS very tasty though!

  56. This was my first use of the Instapot and I really was careful to do everything right, but it never cooked.  The BURN message came up all three times I tried.  I called them and they said I probably didn’t have enough liquid so I added a little more.  Nope.  I’m not going to give us, but I am discouraged.

  57. Just made this recipe. I didn’t read very well and added and stirred in all the water before adding the rice on top. Turned out great. No scorching but not a drop of extra liquid at the end. I made it my own by adding a cup of chopped sweet onion and 1/2t of cayenne pepper to make it SPICY! Thank you for the recipe.

  58. This was a fail for me. After reading through the comments, I was hoping I’d fall into the “this worked and was delicious” camp, and tried cooking this in my 6qt. IP Ultra. I followed the recipe exactly including keeping the rice layered on the top. Got the “burn” message 3 times in a row, right after pre-cook completed  and before going into cooking mode. Each time, the food was cooking to the bottom of the pot (not rice). So now I’m trying to bake it in my oven. Super disappointing. 🙁

    • Oh no, Lara! What a bummer! I’m so sorry this recipe did not turn out for you. It’s so hard to say what went wrong though if you followed the recipe. I have made this dozens of times in my Instant Pot 6qt DUO Plus 60 (I’m actually making it for dinner tonight!) and I have never once received a burn message.

  59. Sorry if this has been asked before, but do you know if this will fit in a duo mini instant pot (3 qt)?

  60. Hi!  I just made this and it smells and tastes great but the rice wasn’t fully cooked.  I ended up adding a bit more chicken broth and did an additional 3 minutes in manual mode, but ended up burning a little bit to the bottom of the pot.  Rice definitely ended up being more “al dente”.  Is there anything else you could recommend doing differently? The recipe said not to stir in the rice but wondering if stirring it into the mixture would have helped?  Thank you!

  61. So I tried this recipe, followed it to the letter, added an extra bit of broth too and the rice never cooked.  Now I’m sitting here with no dinner, wasted a bunch of money on all the ingredients and questioning if I should even bother with the rest of your recipes

    • Jim, I am sorry you are having so much difficulty but when making alterations to a recipe, such as adding additional broth, the results may change. I have tested this recipe dozens of time with a team, and the rice is cooked perfectly each time! Are you using white long-grain rice?

      • So my IP is burnt beyond use anymore, and I’ll never make one of your recipes again.  I followed it exactly and clearly there are 2 major flaws:  not enough broth and not enough cooking time.  Time to order a new pot for my IP as it’s ruoned.

        • Jim, that’s such a bummer to hear about the Instant Pot. Have you watched the instructional tutorial video for this recipe? You will see that I have made the recipe as written with outstanding results – no burning messages and fully cooked rice!

  62. Hi! I am so excited to try this recipe – it looks amazing! I am just wondering, as I have never used an Instant Pot (it gets delivered tomorrow!!! SQUEE!!!) how much I should adjust the time if I am cooking from frozen?

    Thanks! (and wish me luck, ahaha)

  63. I took a chance and tried this, hoping I wouldn’t be in the “burn” crowd, but no such luck. I was absolutely meticulous about not getting any rice stirred in, and still the burn message kept coming up and everything was stuck to the bottom of the pot. 1/4 cup of broth in the bottom layer of the mixture is absolutely NOT enough.

    • I am sorry to hear that! Yes, you are absolutely right. 1/4 cup broth is certainly not enough. However, an additional 3/4 cup broth is added with the rice (so total 1 cup of broth is used in this recipe, which is more than sufficient). Did you add that in? If so, there should not have been any kind of burning.

  64. This recipe is the first one I made in my new instant pot and it turned out nearly perfect and SO delicious.  I followed the recipe as written, and aside from a little that stuck to the bottom, it was fantastic (and fantastically simple to throw together).  Next time I’ll maybe try adding another 1/8 C of broth to help with the sticking.

    Thank you for a great recipe!

  65. I followed the directions exactly and it was perfect! No burning at all. Thanks for an easy and delicious recipe!

  66. Perfect! Even though i messed up on the steps of adding ingredients (mixed salsa with chicken broth and added as final step). It was amazing!
    Cut recipie in half if only two people, or you will have to eat this yummy food for 2+days. Of course we didn’t mind the leftovers 🙂

  67. How would you double this recipe? Do you change all ingredients including the liquids and the time to twice as much?

  68. Continuously went into burn mode, eventually gave up and tossed ingredients, waste of time and money. Followed directions precisely.

  69. I tried to make this recipe- followed directions to a T and unfortunately my instapot kept saying burn.  Valve was in place, everything appeared to be correct. Added more water, in an attempt to save save dinner and still no luck so we ended up ordering dinner. :/ Quite bummed…. But your instant pot mushroom risotto was a huge hit. 

  70. What a fantastic recipe! Easy to make, and so good!

    I have a newer instant pot (the duo 60) and got the dreaded “burn” message when the cooker was reaching pressure. Adding an extra 1/3c of broth solved the problem for me, and everything came out great– the extra liquid all absorbed perfectly.

  71. I never leave comments on blog recipes, but I just had to for this one! I was nervous making this because 1) I’m scared of my new InstaPot , and 2) all of the comments about burned or uncooked food. However, my husband loves Mexican food,  and I’m trying to start using the IP, so I gave it a try last night. Boy, am I glad! One of my new favorites! Everything cooked absolutely perfectly (I followed the recipe except I mixed the seasoning in well with the 1/4 cup of broth before pouring it in). My husband loved it, which I expected, but even the kids loved it! Our 10-month-old chowed down and cleared his high chair tray, our picky oldest admitted it was “pretty good” (high praise for him!), but our middle refused to eat anything but the chicken. With a bit of urging, he finally took a bite, his eyes lit up, and he exclaimed, “Why didn’t I just taste this?!?” So thank you, Damn Delicious, for not only giving us a new favorite recipe but for also teaching our 4-year-old a valuable life lesson about making snap judgments

  72. Just made this and my family is raving. A few changes/hacks…

    I left out the corn as my family isn’t a fan of corn in our burritos. I mixed the seasoning with the broth to help it dissolve. In regards to under cooked rice, I rinsed it then carefully used a rubber spatula to just spread it out a little. When when I added the last of the broth mixture, I poured it over a mixing spoon so it wouldn’t disrupt or “push” he rice down below the mixture.
    For toppings I used sour cream, avocado, cilantro, more cheese, jalapeno slices, tortilla strips & fresh lime juice.

  73. Every time I try this recipe, I get a burn notice. How are you avoiding  burn notice?

    • It’s hard to say, Jenny – I have made this a dozen times without ever receiving a burn notification! Are you following the recipe exactly as written without any substitutions or modifications? Are you stirring in the rice?

  74. How do I modify for a mini 3qt instant pot?

    • When using a 3qt or “mini” Instant Pot, the general rule of thumb is to divide the recipe in half with the same cook time. But as always, please use your best judgment when making substitutions and modifications.

      • I figured it out! I was using the wrong type of rice— I used jasmine first and got a burn notice.  I used long grain white and it worked perfectly!

  75. Tried this tonight for my first Instant Pot meal. I was a bit apprehensive after reading some of the comments but it came out perfectly and had no burning or uncooked bits. Had loads of flavour. I added a chipotle for extra heat and served it with a dollop of Greek yogurt. Felt like a decadent treat.

  76. Thank you so much for this recipe!!! I just purchased my first instant pot and had a hard time just figuring out how to open and close it. I figured I would make plain rice so I had an idea of what I was doing before jumping into a full blown recipe. I googled a basic rice recipe and it was a disaster. It stuck and burnt to the bottom of pot and what didn’t burn wasn’t cooked through. I was thinking I wasn’t going to be an instant pot kind of person but figured I would give this recipe a shot. I am thrilled that I did as it couldn’t have been easier or come out better. The chicken and rice were both cooked to perfection and the taste was OMG! I will definitely be trying your other recipes but I know that this one is a keeper for sure. It still seems like it’s too easy to taste this good! Thank you for helping me through my intro to Instant Pot cooking. After disastrous results, you made me into a success story!

  77. I honestly went out and bought an Instant Pot because sites and recipes like yours sold me.

    THIS (20 Minute Burrito Bowls) was the first thing I tried.

    After searching for a half hour, I finally found a site that told me that new models do not have “Manual Setting” anywhere, and I had to just use the [Pressure Cooker] button.

    I followed the recipe exactly, using a scale and all measuring cups to measure everything out… and I was sure to not mix in the rice.  Even with that.. the [bUrN] icon can up every two minutes.

    After opening it and pouring the ingredients into another bowl and scrubbing the pot, I added more Chicken Broth (as suggested from other posts noting the [bUrN] icon), but OT STILL BURNED  (this time with the rice touching the bottom some.. inevitably)

     **added note:  I did not mix in the rice on the first try.  The chicken and the taco seasonings/broth burned at the bottom

    Following this recipe cost me $30 in ingredients.

    • Hi Jeremy. That’s such a bummer to hear! As mentioned in the previous comments, this has been thoroughly tested in a 6qt Instant Pot Duo60 model without any burn indications so I cannot speak for why you would receive a burn message, especially if the recipe was followed. What model and size Instant Pot did you use?

  78. Made this exactly as directed. My instant pot did not come to pressure and my rice was uncooked. Had to add more chicken broth and salsa and cooked for another 10 minutes but all of the rice was still not fully cooked and the bottom of the pan was burning. Really disappointed. Ratios for liquid need to be adjusted for this recipe.

  79. Do you 1st cook the chicken, or does it go in the instapot raw?

  80. I tried this recipe for my bible study group. I even double the recipe. Turned out lovely and delicious. I will be using it again. I love the video of it. It helped me to figure out what I needed to do to get it perfect. I have many of your recipes and I have never been disappointed. It makes me seem as if I am a good cook. Thanks

  81. Hello I was wondering if I should go by the video or the recipe as written.  The recipe states to add 1/4 cup of the broth with the chicken and 3/4 at the end with the rice.  The video shows the full 1 cup of being added in the beginning with the chicken.  

  82. What adjustments should be made, if using an 8 qt. Instant Pot?

  83. Hello, what model of instant pot is good for making this recipes ? Duo 7 in 1 6 qt. or 6 in 1 6 qt the old model ?
    And most of your recipes are using which model of instant pot please ?

  84. Unfortunately, I got the burn message…  that always disapoints me when I get that message.

  85. Made this recipe for the family for lunch today and it turned out just fine. I used closer to 1 1/4 C chicken broth (rather than the 3/4 C in the recipe) just because I know how my pot particular pot cooks. In the end I probably could have gotten away with one cup.

    For folks having trouble with burn notifications, I wonder how accurately the rice is being measured – a flat measured cup of rice vs a full rounded cup would make a difference in a recipe will relatively small amounts of liquid, particularly with space being taken up by other ingredients and interfering with the rice being able to make contact with and absorb adequate amounts of liquid. That could easily result in a burn notice. That’s why you wouldn’t stir the mixture once the rice is added. It needs to remain in contact with as much of the liquid as possible.

    One other possible issue may the size of the cut up chicken. The chunks need to be of sufficient size and amount so the rice sits on top of the chicken, more or less, and not fall through the spaces to the bottom of the pot where it wouldn’t have adequate liquid to cook properly. That scenario could also product a burn notice.

    In the end, the recipe does work as written. And as with everything else I’ve made from this site, is very tasty. Thanks for sharing!

  86. Could I make this with frozen chicken breasts? If so, how? Always forget to thaw first :/
    Thanks!

  87. After reading all 174 posted comments, I must admit that I was somewhat skeptical about this recipe. However, I couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome! I followed Ryan’s advice for a 24 minute duration using brown rice. The results were terrific. Hardly any of the ingredients were even stuck to the bottom the IP pot. To that end, I had no issues with burn notices. I’m using IP Duo 6QT.

    The kids (1 and 3 year old) couldn’t shovel enough of this dish in! All in all, this was a great success and I was sold on Damn Delicious recipes after 0.497295 seconds. Thank you all.

  88. Can I do this with frozen chicken breast?

  89. Not gonna lie, I was petrified to try this because, 1. I’m an instant pot newbie and I’m 1000% sure it’s going to explode each time I use it. 2. The other comments about getting a burn code. But I tried it anyways and stared at the pot for the entire 20 minutes someday I’ll get over this fear.

    I couldn’t follow to the T. I didn’t have salsa on hand, so I used a can of diced tomatoes. I also made my own taco seasoning. My chicken wasn’t completely defrosted, so I cut smaller. I did however, NOT mix the rice as stated a million times in the comments. Thanks for reiterating it.

    This recipe is absolutely delish! I live alone so it will definitely be going into portioned containers in the freezer. Also, my pot didn’t explode or burn. Safe for another day!

  90. what is the nutrition?

  91. About how many people does this serve? It looks amazing!!

  92. Made this last night and it was delicious! I used brown rice and did cook it for the 24 minutes mentioned in the comments, but it was not quite enough time. I will definitely make this recipe again with brown rice, but I will add a few more minutes.

  93. What if I want to make this and not use any rice? Do I need to adjust the cooking time?

  94. I’m cooking this right now and I keep getting burn notices. I think there are too many ingredients?! I have an 8 quart and I have used a full quart of chicken broth now. First recipe I’m having trouble with! What am I doing wrong ?

  95. Hi!  This looks delicious but I can’t have white rice.  Any idea how to make it with brown rice?
    Thanks!!

  96. Do you drain the corn and beans before adding?

  97. Made this as my first instant pot recipe in a 3 QT duo mini second handed to me, it turned out amazing. 
    Used uncle ben’s long grain white rice and left out the chili’s. The bottom was a bit watery during first portions but was soaked up by the rice when going back for seconds. 

    I stirred the ingredients very well before topping with the rice and last portion of stock before closing the lid. 

  98. I love the burrito bowls but often get a burn message on my instant pot. Please help!

  99. I followed the recipe exactly. The instant pot signaled “burned” before pot came to full pressure. Will not cook this again. 

  100. Can I double this recipe for a team dinner? Do you have to increase the cooking time? Or will it just take longer to come up to pressure?

  101. Just a note to folks that it is not literally 20 minutes due to the time it will take for the instant pot to come to pressure. So more like 30 minutes. Just sayin’

    Making it now for the first time with a couple minor modifications. Smells very good!

  102. So… the burn error message happened to me too. I’ve made this twice now by READING the instructions- happened both times. Luckily I just left it in long enough with the burn message showing up multiple times where the pot never got to pressure but still cooked everything (and it was still delicious). After reading through these comments I realized there was a video component on the page as well showing how to prepare the dish. Here’s what I think may be happening:

    In the written instructions it says to add 1/4 cup broth to the chicken and spices, mix, then add everything else on top, finished with the rest of the broth and rice. The mixture is quite thick and the last 3/4 cup of broth seems to sit on top of everything else instead of heading to the bottom of the pot. 

    In the video the entire cup of broth is added in the first step when mixing with the spices and chicken. Could this be the key difference that’s causing the food to burn? 

    I haven’t had the chance to try the video method yet, but will in the coming weeks because I love the dish and can’t imagine what it will be like properly cooked. 

    Thanks for the great instant pot recipes, keep em’ coming!

    • Hi Glenn! I’m so glad the recipe still worked out for you! I have made this at least 20 times now using both methods – 1/4 cup broth being added first, and then the entire 1 cup broth being added all at once. I don’t have issues with either method to be honest!

  103. I doubled this recipe. Substituted the chicken broth for a can of (coors light) beer and used instant rice. Other than that I Followed the recipe to the tee! Set it for 15 min. And let it rip! It came out killer!! Defiantly will be making this again. Thanks for the recipe. 

  104. Followed this recipe exactly. Rice was completely uncooked after 10 minutes. Added another 10 minutes. Still very undercooked.

  105. Epic meal. My 5 and 8 year old licked their bowls (unheard of at my house.) Thanks for delish dish! -katie

  106. Hi. Will it work in a 3 quart? What issues do you think we would have? I’m a rookie. Thanks 

  107. Wish the recipe specified long grain WHITE rice! I used brown rice and ended up with undercooked, crunchy rice. The recipe is great and the flavors were still good, just a bit more chewing involved. It is also potentially unhealthy to eat undercooked recipe, so I’d recommend specifying in the ingredients list! “Long grain rice” describes either white long grain or brown long grain. Thanks!

  108. Do I need to saute and brown the raw Chicken?

  109. I am new to InstaPot cooking but I am thinking the problem a few people who said they followed the recipe exactly may be encountering differences with geographic altitude or elevation. I googled this as a theory and found two articles about pressure cooking being affected. So maybe comments of success could include one’s city and state. Just a thought. TRYING this recipe tonight—first ever. In low-altitude “Benicia,  California. 

  110. Success & sooo good!! My first InstaPot attempt and I am very happy. Thank you very much for an easy, fast recipe. Your instruction and recipe are so appreciated!!

  111. Hi Chungah!

    The flavors of this recipe are delicious but unfortunately, when using plain white rice, the 10 minute cook time was not sufficient to cook the rice through and it came out raw and uncooked. I know the recipe suggest long grain rice but do you have any experience using white rice? What do you think a good adjusted cook time would be?

    Thanks!
    Tom

  112. I’ve made this recipe at least 4 times in the past without any problems however tonight i got the burn error repeatedly. I noticed that the instructions have changed as before you mixed 1/4 cup chicken broth with the chicken and taco seasoning before adding other ingredients. I believe you lastly added the rice then the remaining chicken broth, unsure of quantity. And now you add all the chicken broth initally then rice on top at the end. Am I imagining things or did the directions really change? Ugh, thought it was a for sure easy dinner night instead of a disaster.

    • Yes, the directions have been changed (with even further extensive recipe testing) but I have actually never received a burn message using either methods: with 1/4 cup broth initially being added or with the entire 1 cup broth being added all at once.

      • Thanks for your response! I’ve made this again because it tastes awesome and realized I used packaged taco seasoning that contained cornstarch versus my diy mix that has no thickening agent. (Different brands are probably different) I think when I got the burn error it was because the chicken broth began to thicken decreasing the amount of liquid present causing the other ingredients to rest on the bottom. If i use the same prepackaged seasoning again I will add extra broth. Maybe this will help some others…

  113. Got the dreaded burn message from this. Followed recipe exactly. Had to cook on stovetop.

  114. Followed this recip to the T and lol I got was burned food.  UGH

  115. Can you double this recipe? How long should it cook in instapot then?

  116. I too had the problem of having a lot of dry, uncooked rice on top after the 10 minutes were up. I did about 1.5 times the entire recipe. The flavour of everything that cooked was great, but I think from the comments it’s evident that something needs to be done to ensure that the rice gets properly cooked.
    Thanks for all the instant pot recipes — it is great to have them!

  117. This is now a go-to recipe in my house. Followed it exactly. Thank you!

  118. A big hit in my house. Can it be doubled for a crowd, or even tripled?

  119. Should have read the reviews. Got a burn warning, dumped everything into another bowl, cleaned all the burned rice off the bottom, put it back in, added more liquid and it continued to happen. Smelled good, I’ll do it again and just make some Minute Rice on the side, but the recipe, as written, doesn’t work.

  120. Couldn’t be quicker or easier ! Delicious – a hit with the family . Will be making this often.

  121. I have an 8 quart IP. Made this last night for dinner. Used a packaged spicy taco seasoning and a habanero salsa (we like our foods spicy) and it turned out great. I used brown rice instead of white rice (rinsed the rice and let sit in water for an hour) and the rice turned out fine. Had no issues with burning, either- but was very careful about setting the rice over everything in the IP and not mixing it in. Thanks for another great recipe!

  122. Just made this exactly according to directions and it worked and tasted great!! Thanks for your great recipes and for sharing Butters with us 🙂 

  123. I love this recipe! Sometimes I’d like to have abeggie version. Would this change the cook time?

  124. Mine still came out watery? The broth was still very visible and the chicken felt undercooked?

  125. As other reviewers tweaked the rice in the recipe I too have a suggestion for anyone using an 8 quart Instant Pot and is concerned about the rice being uncooked. I soaked brown basmatic rice for an hour before, pushed it into the ingredients and added 1/2 cup of extra fluid. I made my own taco seasoning and used 3 Tbsp in this recipe. This recipe was fantastic – 10/10. I used 1/4 cup of cheese that I mixed into the pot and then served the leftover cheese, avocado, green onion, chopped tomato and cilantro on each bowl to each person’s taste. With an 8 quart instant pot it took 19 minutes to heat up to the 10 minute cooking time. It was worth the wait – you will not be disappointed.

  126. This recipe is delish. I’m trying to keep track of calories. Do you have any idea of the nutritional break down?

    Confession: I did almost everything wrong.

    I was in a huge hurry and my printer wasn’t working, so I just wrote down the ingredients (noting that the rice goes on top) and cooking time. When I got to the kitchen I had only a couple of minutes to put this together, and I just dumped everything but the rice in. I didn’t have canned corn so I used a 16-oz bag of frozen corn without defrosting it. I didn’t have green chiles, so I omitted them. I didn’t have black beans, so I used pinto. I stirred it all together, carefully put the rice on top, and set it. It did take a while to come to pressure (I assume because of the frozen corn), but I didn’t have any burn notices and the rice was cooked perfectly. This was so tasty and quick, and gobbled up by everyone here. Thank you!

    I made this as my first attempt in the IP.  Followed instructions exactly and it turned out perfectly.  Next time I might put spicier green chile in it, but overall it was pretty tasty and the rice as perfectly cooked.

  131. My 2nd instant pot recipe and let me tell you…awesome! I carved 1/2 a chicken and used the breast and thigh. I didn’t have the beans so I made them from dry in the instant pot! I had all the other ingredients and followed the directions exactly and it came out great.

    We topped ours with sour cream, green onions, cilantro and olives.

    We’re two for two now!

    I did not stir my rice. I followed the recipe exactly- all the exact amounts. I made sure the rice was on top. I got the burn message after a few minutes. I opened it and added 1/2 cup broth on top of the rice and started again. I got the burn message again. I just ignored it because I did not know what to do, lol. After the 20 minutes and venting. I opened the pot and the rice was not done, some parts looked like they were not even wet. I put in another cup of liquid and stirred it and cooked for 3 more minutes (I got another burn message). When I opened it, it seemed OK. It tasted very good. It is burned on the bottom of my pot as well.

    Did exactly what the recipe called for.  Got the burn error.. Added more liquid, still got the burn error. By this time the rice was mixed in and I was unable to cook it. Had to toss the whole thing and order pizza.  I usually love the recipes on the site.  This one is a big negative for me. 

    • What’s essential is to have thin liquid on the bottom to avoid burn error.  Counter-intuitive to the way we stove-top cook. So muchn depends on how liquidy the salsa is.  And if you add more liquid?  Gotta make sure the rice isn’t stirred……or dump it into a pan and stove top it.

    The recipe tasted fine, it was quick and easy to put together… But I gave it two stars because it wouldn’t work in my IP at all. I use a 6 QT DUO60 Instant Pot, and I followed the instructions exactly, but I kept getting a “burn” message no matter what. After troubleshooting my IP by adding more water, checking the valve, and even inserting a trivet for the chicken chunks, I realized that the rice in the recipe was what was causing the “burn” message. I ended up having to dump everything into a large pot and simmer it on the stove until everything was cooked. Very disappointing 🙁

Started with following the recipe exactly; burn message. Tried adding more liquid, same message. Decided to try stirring and setting on stew/meat. Burn. I’m so angry and don’t want to throw it away. It’s on my stove in a skillet, hopefully I can salvage this!

    My first attempt w/ an IP recipe. I have the 8qt LUX model. I doubled the recipe, except for the chicken which was just under 1.5x the original recipe. Everything other ingredient was doubled (I used 1 can of black beans and 1 can of pinto, and decided to use canned fire roasted corn instead of standard corn.) Beyond that, I followed the directions, making sure the rice was on top. I did lightly press the rice  it to make sure it was wet, but I did not stir it. I did increase the cook time to 12 minutes, but I think I could have gotten away with 10. 

    I didn’t have any burn warnings, and it turned out delicious, no pot damage, burns, or any other nasty results. I must admit, I was a little freaked out by other reviewers, but it worked like a charm for me. The family loved it and we have plenty for leftovers, burritos and such. I recommend slicing some avocados and serving with lime wedges and sour cream in addition to the cilantro. It’s pretty mild, so I added my fav hot sauce. Good stuff.

    I had the same problem others had – burn indicator came on.  I wish I would’ve read all those reviews first so I’d have known this was a likely outcome.  It is SUPER frustrating. Once the burn light strikes, you’re dead in the water because you have to clean out the bottom which means the rice is stirred in and the problem gets worse. I finished on the stove and my entire family loved the dinner and want it in our rotation. I’ll try once more in the IP meticulously following instructions and perhaps putting in a silicone trivet to help keep everything but the liquid on the bottom.

    I’m in love???? I’m dancing with every bite! I had to use a different type of beans, and I cooked it a little longer because I had frozen chicken, but it came out so perfectly! The rice is great, chicken is perfectly cooked, and the flavor is magnificent! Will make VERY regularly 

  159. So excited to try this recipe! I will be using an 8 quart instant pot. Do you have any advice for what adjustments should I make? Thanks in advance!

    • When using an 8qt Instant Pot, the timing should stay relatively the same. It would just take a little longer for it to come to pressure. But as always, please use your best judgment when making substitutions and modifications.

  160. Sad to report that my rice was also hard after using the Instant Pot (6 quarts). I am putting it in the oven now and hoping to salvage it. Wish I had just cooked the rice in a rice cooker and added it at the end. I didn’t stir the rice in either and didn’t make any substitutions. I think the oven will probably fix it though.

    Flavors of this were great! More so than other burrito bowls I’ve made with a crock pot. My only issue was getting the rice to cook. I used brown long grain rice and after reading the comments I realized the brown needs a longer cooking time. We ended up cooking ours 23 mins (in several increments) but was still a tad undercooked. Chicken was perfection! I’d recommend specifying white long grain rice in the recipe since different cooking times apply.

    I made this tonight. It was so quick and easy and DELICIOUS! The only change I made was I used frozen corn instead of canned. I served it with corn tortillas warmed in a frying pan. Thank you for this great recipe! I will definitely make this again!

  169. Would the recipe stay the same for an 8 qt instant pot?

    • When using an 8qt Instant Pot, the recipes stays the same and the timing should be relatively the same. It would just take a little longer for it to come to pressure. But as always, please use your best judgment when making substitutions and modifications.

    The first time I made this recipe, I had some burn on the bottom (I honestly think it was the spices that settled) but the food itself was totally edible, you couldn’t taste a charred flavor. Second time I made this, I adjusted a bit..

    I used 1/2 cup chicken broth on the bottom along with the spices and chicken, then continued with the directions as stated. The final step – I poured the *rinsed* white jasmine rice on top, drizzled 3/4 cup broth over it, then closed the lid to cook.

    No burning, perfectly cooked and it wasn’t watery. Have made this multiple times since because it’s SUPER easy and my boyfriend tells me this is one of his favorite meals – quick dinner is your fave? don’t have to tell me twice! Thank you!!

    I was nervous about it because so many reviewers had trouble with the rice but I was short on time and decided to give it a go. So glad I did. I followed the recipe exactly, left out the chiles and cilantro because we are not fans of either. Everything cooked including the rice! The family loved it and everyone clamored for seconds. No leftovers! I have an 8 qt Instant Pot.

    I followed this recipe exactly with one exception, I used sushi rice because that’s what I had on hand. I cooked it 2 minutes longer because that’s how long I usually do the sushi rice for. It came out perfectly! It was a hit with the whole family. Gotta love a one pot dump dinner. Could not have been any easier. Will definitely make this again!

    I followed the recipe to a T and kept getting burn message. Had to transfer to stove top and improvise which was a bummer.

  174. When I made a similar recipe the rice got mushy and the chicken shredded. I would love a recipe where that doesn’t happen 

  175. I have made this twice and both times the rice didn’t cook

    Third time using my instant pot, and this recipe turned out great! I decided to leave the rice out and cook it separately because I’ve been having issues cooking rice along with my chicken. My chicken was SO tender, although I had a little bit too much moisture in my pot at the end (I added a little extra and left the rice out). Cutting the chicken up made it cook really well, and the beans and corn were delicious! Will be eating this all week.

  177. Like some others, I made this and the center was dry. I mixed it together and put the instant pot on rice cooker for 12 minutes and the rice was mostly cooked. It probably would’ve cooked all the way if it wasn’t 11 pm and if I had some patience to wait for it to cook further! It was still delicious. So delicious that I forgot to enter the rice into the nutrition info, got greedy and added sour cream, realized my mistake half way through, and refused to eat less. Next time I’ll probably reduce the rice since I’m trying to lose weight and those calories get in the way of me and chicken. Still, awesome and Ï loved it. Also forgot the cilantro. Still would eat again! Even with slightly crunchy rice.

    I think the error was I made salsa at home and it was chunky (pineapple, jalapenos, onions) with barely any liquid. I suspect Chung-Ah used a more liquid-y salsa so adding extra liquid would’ve probably avoided the problem.

    Also, more instant pot recipes, please! My cousin bought me one and your risotto and this have been amazing! You’ve converted me!

    I cooked this tonight in my 8qt Duo.   I did double it, added green pepper and layered the rice on top.  I did get the burn notice as soon as it came to pressure.   I suspect after reading all of the reviews it might be due to the taco seasoning and perhaps the starch.   I opened it to check on it and by stirring, of course,  distributed the rice.   I did not feel anything at the bottom so I added more liquid and tried again, knowing it would likely burn from stirring the rice.   Right at pressure it said burn again.   I turned  it off and let it sit under pressure and tried one last time after about five minutes.   It happened again, I let it sit under pressure again and after awhile released pressure and thankfully the rice was cooked as was the chicken.   

    Next time, I will try adding my own spices rather than using a packet, and dissolving them in broth before adding it.   

    My family enjoyed it regardless and it was quite tasty.   And nothing actually visibly burned in my pot.  

    • My last comment….
      After cleaning up and putting the remains into a storage container, I did find taco seasoning stuck to the bottom of the pot, but didn’t feel this when I stirred it.   I will definitely be making sure whatever seasoning I use is dissolved in water or placed elsewhere in the pot so it won’t stick to the bottom.   I have read that starches can burn so perhaps it was related to whatever thickening agent was in the seasoning.

    First time I made this, I followed your instructions exactly. The rice did not cook enough. So just now I tried  again and stirred in the rice. This time, I got a burn message. So I looked it up, and apparently, there should be at least 2 cups liquid and when you add rice at the top, you must push it down so it is submerged in liquid. Disappointed the instructions weren’t better. I have I have made many of  your other recipes and really like them.

    I made this last weekend as a double recipe with triple the chicken for more protein. (I kept the cheese at a cup just to be more macro-friendly for me). I scanned through the reviews and saw that people who wet the rice had no problem, so I poured the chicken broth over the rice at the very end, adjusted the time a little for the extra chicken and it came out absolutely delicious! It fed two of us for 4 lunches and multiple dinners each all week the way I made it. I will probably make this every single weekend, thanks!

    Made this and read reviews whilst cooking and began to imagine what I wanted on my pizza! BUT… it turned out perfect, and admittedly, I tweaked recipe before reading comments.  Increased chicken (1.5 lbs) and beans (19oz)  because those were portions I had on hand, and omitted chilies. To compensate for extra chicken I increased stock and salsa  to 1&1/3 cup each.  Finally, cut the uncle bens converted white rice with uncle bens Spanish rice for extra zip sans chilies and spread evenly OVER the ingredients (no rinsing, no pressing, nothing).  Opened after 10 minutes manual and found perfectly cooked rice on top. Cut cheese back a bit and let family add after the fact.  Topped with sour cream and only thing missing was extra salsa (ran out) and avocado (had none).  Even fussy teen ate two bowls! Thanks for recipe 

    Will definitely make this again!

    Excellent- but I think my rice could have used 5 more minutes!

  187. I’m another who read the recipes as it was cooking and got super nervous, but this turned out great! I used a 6qt Duo and made the recipe exactly as written. In case it’s helpful, I used the Pace Picante salsa. I also sprinkled the rice evenly over the top rather than dumping it in and drizzled the broth evenly over the top so all the rice was moist.

    I’m giving this a five star because of the flavor, this is really good stuff. However, if I’d read all the comments before cooking, I probably would not have tried it as I’m an IP newbie. I followed the recipe exactly, except for not reading closely enough and adding cilantro (only 1TB) before cooking. Like many others, I got the burn notice before the IP started its cooking cycle. As a newbie, I really didn’t know what to do and had to pull out the manual to see what it meant. I released the pressure and raked back the mixture to find a bright shinny bottom in the IP. The mixture looked a little dry so I poured in some more chicken broth, maybe 1/2 cup at the most and stirred it in. After starting up again, I got another burn notice. This time I let it sit there trying to think of what I wanted to do. Since the rice looked pretty good the first time around, I decided I’d release the pressure,and remove the chicken to the microwave to finish off. If the rice wasn’t done, I’d let it simmer in the IP for a while. This time, there was black on the bottom of the pot but both the chicken and the rice were done. I assume the mixture had stayed pressurized and hot enough during the two failed attempts that they had finished cooking. The mixture was thick but I stirred in the cheese and we chowed down. This recipe is what we refer to as a “keeper” when trying something new. The next time I make it, I will maybe add two cups of chicken broth and see what happens. The taste is good enough that it certainly deserves a second try.

  189. I made this in my 5 qt crockpot.  I let it cook on low for 8 hours.  I topped w/ plain yogurt (instead of sour cream) and tortilla chips.  Also served over cauliflower rice ( I know regular rice would taste better but the cauliflower rice saves lots of calories) With all the other flavors I didn’t miss the reg rice TOO much.

    My husband made this recipe last night for us in the Instant Pot that I’ve had in the box since Christmas. What caught his eye was the not-so-many ingredients and the ease of cooking. Oh. My.

    Given the reviews — I read them all — I was a bit worried but went ahead anyway.  Success here.  Instant Pot Duo Plus (6 qt.) at sea level.

    I rinsed the rice before adding it; no idea if that mattered.  I had a 1.1 oz container of (store-bought) taco seasoning, which felt like a lot, so I only used half of it. I mixed it with the chicken broth before adding.  I made sure the seasoning had no corn starch.

    I felt the dish was a bit rice-heavy, but everything was done perfectly and the bowl was a big hit, even with the 4-year old. Topping options were lime, avocado, cilantro, black olives, and light sour cream. There will be a next time; this seems like a versatile base. I am looking forward to trying it with onions, bells, lettuce, tortilla chips, etc.  And quinoa instead of rice.  And jackfruit instead of chicken.  And…

    I read all the reviews and while I was a little hesitant to try this recipe, I decided to go ahead because I love Mexican flavours. I’m happy to report that the rice and chicken were perfectly cooked and my family and I loved the bold flavour. Using my 8 quart Duo,  I followed the recipe as written except that I used the taco seasoning recipe Chungah provided in her link (and not the packaged stuff), I rinsed the rice (personal preference) and carefully spread the rice on top of the liquid ingredients. No burn messages! I love how quickly this tasty meal comes together. Thank you Chungah and please keep the Instant Pot recipes coming!

    This came out perfectly. I tossed the chicken in the taco seasoning and let it sit for about an hour to give the chicken more flavor when cooked. I have noticed with instant pot recipes that sometimes if the chicken chunks are put in with no seasoning, they lack flavor in the dish. I read the other reviews and was worried about the rice being dry, so I added maybe a 1/4 cup more broth and the results were terrific. All the usual suspects were happy with such a tasty dinner! Will definitely make this again.

    I don’t normally do reviews but I wanted to add one for this because I almost didn’t try it based on the other reviews. I followed this recipe exactly based on the written instructions and it came out just as described. It was quick and tasty. There was a very small amount of rice that was a little undercooked but after stirring it in it seemed to cook through the rest of the way. Worth a try for a quick, easy meal.

How do you think that would change the recipe – do you think the chicken will fare well if I use the saute function to sear it a little before adding in the other ingredients and turning on the pressure? Or is it completely unnecessary due to all the other flavors from the salsa and other ingredients? It looks really good. Thanks!

    I made this last night, and I, too, got the “burn notice”. Twice in fact. Each time I opened the pot, stirred things up (so my rice was pretty much submerged by the time it was done), and added more broth. I think I had two issues – one, I had slightly more than a pound of chicken – maybe 1.25. Also, I didn’t have a complete cup of salsa, more like .75. So it makes sense that I had to add a bit more broth. In the end, I probably added a whole extra cup of broth, and was worried it would be soupy, but it wasn’t. I was floored by how delicious this was – my main complaint was that I couldn’t stop eating it!

    • Hi Laura. I can’t make this without getting a burn notice. Three times now. Smells good but I’m very disappointed. Followed directions perfectly.

    I go to Trader Joe’s and get all the components- rice to chicken to beans. And it comes out super cheap! My advice would be to buy corn salsa (adds more sweet flavor), use less spicy taco mix, and buy Trader Joe’s brand pico de gallo. Additionally, reserve half the pico to add after the instant pot, buy a salad mix for some lettuce crunch, and voila, it’s like Chipotle! Man, it turns out better each time I tweak it!

I use a 8qt IP and used to get them more often than I felt was reasonable. I’m cooking at a higher altitude than most, and with the larger pot, I have begun adding at least 1/2 more liquid than the recipe calls for.

    A-mazing! I used 1 cup organic quinoa instead of rice; everything else as is.  It’s wonderful and makes much more than 4 servings.

    Oh my gosh this was delicious! We’re starting a kitchen renovation and to avoid having to order out nightly, I’ve been searching for easy meals with minimal cleanup that will still be delicious, and this recipe nailed that. Thank you so much, we will be definitely making this regularly!!

    Absolutely love this recipe I’ve made it several times. I enjoy making it without the chicken so I have that vegetarian option. If I do want chicken and Grillet on my cast iron grill pan and top my burrito bowl with that. I have also topped it with grilled steak and grilled shrimp.   I don’t mix in the cheese I just use the cheese as a garnish and I love it. So darn good !!

    Easy and delicious! The whole family loved it. I used a chicken taco seasoning packet, and served with chopped tomato, sour cream, and avocado. Would be great in wraps as well.

    I made this according to the instructions, and put the rice on top – without stirring. Smells delicious, but when I opened it, there was a small portion that wasn’t cooked. So, now I have hard, uncooked rice to crunch in my burrito bowl. 🙁 I’m closing it back up with a little more chicken broth and hoping that it can steam the rest into submission.  Maybe instead of not stirring at all, give the rice a small stir into the goods?

    Excellent! Followed exactly as written in my 6qt IP. Huge hit in my household. Putting it into our rotation. Delish!

  260. Rated 5 out of 5

    Wow this blew me away. I added the salsa and cheese as toppings instead of putting them in the pot. Also topped with guac and sour cream and YUM. To avoid undercooked rice, just push the rice into the pot so it’s at least partially submerged, but don’t mix it in. 

  261. Rated 5 out of 5

    So delicious! I mixed the rice a little before and it came out perfect! 

    • Sounds great I’m planning to make it tonight 
      I just have one question:
      I don’t need to turn on the instapot until stage 3?
      The stirring of the chicken, broth,  seasoning, etc. is all made with the instapot off?

      Thank you

    The flavors are outstanding! I got the dreaded burn notice 4 times. I wish I had read these reviews prior to cooking. I know I will add more broth and probably salsa next time as well as put some broth over the rice and push it down into it as the rice was also a little too crunchy. It was edible and I can see what a great dish it could be. I’ll give it another try!

    Delish!!! I added extra broth to keep from burning. Question: If I want to make a double batch, do I add to the time?

  267. Rated 5 out of 5

    Ridiculously easy to make, really tasty, and came out perfectly.

    For everyone complaining about their rice being uncooked, make sure you’re not using brown rice (unless maybe it’s been parboiled or something). You can’t expect rice with a 20-25 minute Instant Pot cook time to cook in 10 minutes. Buy rice that’s got a 10-15 minute cook time listed on the package, and you should be fine.

    You also need to press the rice down into the liquid a little bit. Rice won’t cook if it’s just sitting dry in a big heap in the middle of the cooker. Spread it evenly over the top of the mixture and push it down a little to get it in contact with the liquid.

    I personally found 1 cup of cheese to be a bit of overkill, but wouldn’t change anything else about this recipe. Thanks!

  268. I don’t know how she made this without it burning! Followed the directions completely and got the burn notice. Open the pot , stirred it around and started again. Burn notice again. Ended up having to finish it on the stove. Now, I have two pots to clean! Not enough liquid in this recipe, but it was damn delicious!

    So I just got my Instapot, and this was my first ever meal
    I made in it. OMG this was Ah-May-Zing! I’m officially sold on the Instapot, and this is going into the dinner rotation for sure. I had no issues making it. No “burn notices” The rice was cooked perfectly. And even my two SUPER PICKY eaters gave it a thumbs up. 
    Fantastic recipe! Thank you!

    I just got my instapot, and this was my second test recipe.  Excellent from all 5 that ate tonight.  A few changes- doubled the meat (organic chicken “tenders” from Costco- didn’t cut them).  Trader Joe’s Taco seasoning- 1 packet, used frozen corn, used 2 cups of veggie broth, and added an extra cup of water as many reviews stated issues with fluids.  I put brown rice on 1/2 of the mix as 1 person doesn’t eat rice.  I did submerge the five as I was concerned it wouldn’t cook.  I let us sit/soak for about 20-30 min, then cooked for 20 min.  It looked very soupy when I opened the pot, but when scooped out the non rice serving the chicken fell apart and it was a very thick tortilla soup mix.  Then I mixed the rest and again as the chicken fell apart, and rice soaked up much of the fluid, it was perfect!   Thank youDD for the recipe.  Will be using your website a lot!

    I made this today, followed the recipe except for stirring everything together and added an extra 3/4 cup broth-per the other reviews. Oh and I used frozen corn.  Turned out perfect and was oh so good! Thank you for such a tasty recipe!!

    Tried making this after reading reviews, added extra fluid(18 oz which is the min amount for my IP), left the rice on top without stirring like it said, tried to disperse the rice evenly. Still got the burn alarm twice. Seems like the rice sinks to the bottom and that’s what’s burning. Had to finish on the stove. 

  273. Rated 5 out of 5

    Few changes:
    1. I used onion, not pepper
    2. Used wildrice
    3. Used hot sauce

    Soooo tasty and easy. Used for a super fast dinner. Yum!

    This was my third meal I’ve made in my instant pot, I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out just like the video.
    There was just enough liquid at the bottom and when everything was stirred it was all absorbed. Was like by all who ate tonight. Thank you for this site

    This is the second time I have tried to cook this recipe, not remembering the burn issues I got the first time. Before anyone tries to tell me it’s from not washing my IP correctly, I remove the seal and wash it every single time. I have no issues with any recipes aside from this one. I got the burn notice twice, despite using close to a half cup more chicken broth. The second time, emptied the pot, washed it out completely, scrubbed all the charred rice off the bottom, that I had previously let rest on top of the mix, and returned it to try to finish the recipe. I also added an additional 1/2 cup of water. Lo and behold, burn notice 3. At this point I’ve thoroughly given up and I have just stirred it and pushed the button again. The rice is almost tender now that I’ve gone through all of these burn notices. 

    • Had the same issues on my first two attempts. I just posted the following as my third attempt, which was a success.

      Had to adjust the cooking method as the fist two attempts to make this in my Duo Nova resulted in “Burn” messages. On the third attempt I did not add the corn/beans/chiles to the IP before cooking and everything worked out much better. As the corn/beans/chiles are edible right out of the can I simply added them immediately post pressure release with the cheese. This added a good bit of additional texture to the bowls. Hope that this helps those with the “Burn” message challenge.

    • Are you using this recipe in a 8qt insta pot?  I had the same issue as you did. Took everything out washed the pot and put everything back in and hot burn notice again. I have heard that not using the correct size pot could be the problem. Can anyone comment on this?

    Amazing! Loved the flavours. Like previous comments below I also used Long grain brown rice and it was just slightly underdone – I agree with pushing the rice down to absorb some of the liquid for next time. 

    Flavours are spot on! I added hot sauce and it was incredible 🙂 

  278. Made this tonight and enjoyed it a lot!  Used 1 1/2 cups of chicken broth, also added a dash of coriander and a squeeze of lime.  As other suggested, I lightly pressed the rice down so it have a bit of moisture in it. Used Basmati rice.  Sprinkled cheese on top rather than stirring in. Also sprinkled lettuce and avocado on top. Will make again!

    New staple at the household, my daughter and husband absolutely love this and it’s SO easy to make. I add half a chopped up onion, jalapeno and one bell pepper in as well + topped with avocado and some shredded cheese after (my daughter likes tomatoes and sour cream). I usually do 1.5 cups of broth only because I put a bit over the recommended amount of chicken and I use regular long-grain white rice, haven’t needed to press it down or had any moisture issues – I have left it to warm/release pressure on it’s own though so that may be why.

    I have NEVER gotten a burn notice with this recipe and we’ve made it at least 5 times in the last couple months.

    Made this tonight for the first time! My family loved it! I made it exactly per the instructions except I did add 1/2 cup more broth per the other reviews. The rice was perfect!!

  281. Rated 5 out of 5

    Made this last night, as written, and it turned out perfect. The chicken was tender and easy to cut with a fork for smaller pieces so there would be some left for all the bites in the meal. My husband asked if I could cut the chicken into smaller pieces before it cooked. I’m guessing that smaller chicken pieces would mean faster cooking and the possibility of over-cooking? I’ll be making this again, for sure. We really liked how the rice cooked with all the flavors in this meal.

  282. I made this but kept getting the burn notice. I finally had to finish it on the stove. It was really good though. I do have an 8qt insta pot so not sure if that was the problem. I didn’t stir the rice just gently push the rice down a bit into the mixture.  Please let me know what I did wrong.

    Made this tonight since I happened to have most of the ingredients on hand. Followed the recipe as written, only changes were taco seasoning (didn’t have any so made my own) and type of cheese. Came out perfect, so yummy! It was pretty spicy from the seasoning mix so added a dollop of sour cream along with the tortilla chips. Thanks for another great recipe.

    I admit, I saw this recipe as an experiment and wasn’t really expecting it to come out. I mean how could it be *that* delicious and easy? But I stand corrected. It was delicious and easy! I like my food a bit more spicy so I added some cayenne and red chilli flakes. The only thing that didn’t turn quite right was some of the rice- I followed the direction to not stir the rice but whatever wasn’t submerged ended up a bit crunchy. I was able to mix it in and now I just get a few crunches in my bite but nothing too alarming. I wonder if It was stirred it would be more evenly cooked? Thanks for sharing! I love your posts 🙂

    Husband and I loved this recipe. We have a 3qt Instant Pot and just divided the recipe in half. I added another 1/4 of broth and a little water. Swapped out rice for quinoa instead. Made sure to gently push the quinoa down without stirring – cooked perfect. Since we halved the recipe, but the chicken breast I had was .75 lbs (instead of .5lbs) I used all .75lbs. The chicken may have been a smidge dry but overall delicious and NO BURN NOTICE as others stated they were having problems with. I also added a few basil leaves. We definitely will be making this again!

    I made this with the insta pot  8qt duo 

    I used 1 and 3/4 cups chicken broth instead of 1 cup because I saw other mention a burn warning.

    I’m obsessed.

    My husband and I loved it! I mixed in the rice, out of habit, but turned out wonderful anyway!! 

  289. This recipe is good as a burrito but I don’t see it as an instapot recipe. It wouldn’t cook but 2 mins in the instapot without the burn notice. I tried twice and both times at the start of cooking it said but, and that was adding 1 3/4 cups of broth. I had to put it in a pot on the stove to cook.

    This was great! I used 1.5 cups of chicken broth based on other reviews. I also didn’t stir the rice but pushed it down into the liquid…no burn notice over here. I served mine with lime juice, additional shredded cheese, green onion, cilantro and Valentina black label hot sauce. My husband absolutely loved it and ate a ton.

    As a side note, I’ve been living in our mother-in-law suite above our garage for almost 6 months because we are doing a full house remodel. There’s not real kitchen up there, so I have been cooking only with the Instant Pot and I would absolutely DIE without your excellent recipes! Once I have my stove back I’ll probably throw the Instant Pot out (I am so sick of it) but I am so grateful to your site for at least giving me some good recipes to work with so I can continue to cook for myself and my husband.

    Made this last night for myself and a friend. I was wary about the reviews showing some troubles with rice or a burn notice but I had zero issues. I made it exactly as shown and it was delicious! I plan to make again next week. Loving these recipes!

    I got the burn notice with this recipe too. So I stirred everything, including the rice, up and tried again. Still burn. I didn’t want it to go to waste, so I put it in the oven for 20 minutes (it was already quite warm from being in the instant pot) and it was sooo delicious. When I was pouring the meal into the baking dish, I saw there was burning, and it appeared to be the taco seasoning, which I had only haphazardly mixed in with the chicken broth. Next time, I’m going to try to whisk half of the seasoning mix in with the broth, and stir the rest of the seasoning throughout the entire pot (pre-rice) rather than letting it rest on the bottom and see if that helps.

    My husband, who claims to not like rice, LOVED this. It was so yummy. Since we didn’t have the shredded chicken option after baking, we chopped the breasts into smaller pieces and they were super flavorful and moist.

    When I made this, the rice didn’t cook completely and was crunchy. Other similar recipes call for a 15-minute natural release so the rice absorbs all of the liquid. Also, I’d rather put the cheese on at the table. I really liked this with some lettuce and sour cream on tortilla chips!

  294. Rated 5 out of 5

    This was seriously delicious!! We’ll definitely be making this again. The only thing I would do differently is spread the rice evenly over the top because some of the rice was slightly undercooked.

    I love the flavors of this burrito bowl! It tastes so delicious and my hubby loves it also! The biggest problem I had was I got the burn notice almost immediately after the instant pot sealed. I emptied it and scrubbed the pot and put the mixture back in with probably a cup and a half more water and tried again and had the same result. So I just put the mixture on the stove and finished cooking it. It was delicious I just wish I could get it to work right in my instant pot. Mine is a instant pot duo 6 quart. Any tips? Also I live your recipes! So good and so easy!

    Just wanted to add a quick review with other comments. I made this as stated…except I forgot the can of corn initially so I threw that on top. Made in an 8qt. Rice was perfect, it was delicious! Even my extremely fussy 10 yr old loved it and asked for some for lunch tomorrow! Not sure why some get burn message and others don’t. Oh, one other thing I did was mixed the taco seasoning on the chicken and then added the broth and other items as I misread the instructions first . Delicious!

    Loved the recipe, I made it spicy and smoky with Chipotle Peppers instead of Green Chilies, Chili Beans, and Jalapeno Salsa-sticky rice too.

    I got the burn indicator on my insta pot prior to it sealing, I kept opening it up and scraping the rice that had stuck to and was starting to burn on the bottom of the cooker. Eventually the rice cooked to a point where I didn’t have to keep scraping. Heard about this happening with jumbalaya to someone else.

    When I do this again, I’m going to mix everything (apart from the garnishes) in the pot first then add the rice on top without touching it. I also don’t think a little extra liquid would hurt.

    Followed the instructions exactly. I didn’t mix the rice. I actually mixed only the chicken, taco seasoning, and chicken stock – then lightly mixed in the beans and corn. I washed the rice separately to get rid of the starch and then placed it evenly on top (did not mix it in). Did not get a burn notice.  I mixed everything in the end after it fully cooked. Excellent flavor!!

  301. Rated 4 out of 5

    This turned out pretty well. I only had instant rice, so I just left it out until the end. Once the chicken was done in the instant pot, I threw the rice in and let it sit for five minutes and it turned out fine. I also used frozen chicken breast and just shredded it once it was done cooking (I upped the time to 25 minutes). I usually get the burn notice frequently in this instant pot, but since the rice didn’t go in until after it was done cooking, it wasn’t a problem. This wasn’t particularly spicy, so my kids ate it without complaints. I will probably make this again and use the same method as I did before.

    I made this for the first time tonight and they came out perfect! I have an 8qt InstantPot Duo Evo Plus, was worried about getting a burn notice, so I followed one of the suggestions and used 1 3/4 cups of the broth. I did make sure the rice was covered with the liquid before starting the pot. Cooked to perfection and were delicious 😀 I served it up in soft taco bowls and added guacamole and sour cream as a topping with the cilantro.

  303. Rated 5 out of 5

    This was delicious! My family doesn’t like black beans, so I substituted diced tomatoes. I also added a can of red enchilada sauce.  I love cilantro, so I pressed that into the rice so it would cook in.  It turned out fabulous!!  I think next time I may add avocado salsa instead of red enchilada sauce – or in addition to it!

  304. Used 1.5 times the amount of liquid in this recipe and it still burned. The measurements for this recipe need to be corrected.

    I loved it. I added sour cream on the top when finished. I made the mistake of using basmati rice(that’s all I had)- I should have reduced the rice. Will definitely make again- easy, quick. I think I will add avocado on the top and use the correct rice

  307. Rated 4 out of 5

    Followed directions exactly because it’s only my second time with the instant pot. Rice was kinda crunchy. But still great flavor loved it with a big dollop of sour cream.

  308. Adjustments: Add extra .5 cup of chicken broth. Gently press rice into liquid, but don’t stir. Natural release for 5 mins then quick release. Don’t mix in the cheese. Just put it on the table so each person can add their own. It’ll melt because the food is really hot. I also didn’t use any green chilies because I forgot to buy them. We are adding this to our freezer meal prep for sure.

  309. Got the Instant Pot for less cooking time and every recipe I ever try burns.  This one included.  Followed the recipe to a T.  Over an hour to troubleshoot and was never able to get it to cook on High.  Now it’s on Low and I’m not too sure how long I’ll let this go for until I’m satisfied with how well the chicken is cooked.  It’s taken over an hour to get to try is point for a recipe that should only take 20min.  Another instant pot fail.

    Very disappointed. After cooking, I realized the photo on this blog CANNOT possibly be this dish made in the IP. If cooked as directed, why does the picture show the chicken separated from the beans and corn and rice? If made as directed, everything is mushed together. Not a huge deal but I wanted the food that appears in the photo, not the mush that came  out of my IP. Second, like so many other people here, when I tried to make this, it burned badly on the bottom of the IP. Clearly there needs to be more liquid added. And again, final result looks NOTHING like the photo.

    • I’m so sorry you had so much trouble with this recipe but the recipe was actually cooked as written from start to finish and photographed accordingly. IT ACTUALLY IS POSSIBLE, AJ!

    I was worried with the theory of newer Instant Pots having trouble with burning rice and I have a new 6 quart Duo Plusbut I cooked the recipe as close as I could. Canadian corn and black beans come in different sized tins but I used one cup of rice, one cup of broth and one pound of chicken and I did rinse the rice first and I pressed the rice in to the mix. It came out perfect. The rice was perfectly cooked and so was the chicken. I used white rice but next time I will try par boiled – fingers crossed. I don’t know why so many people have had troubles but I suspect some are trolls. Thank you so much Chungah for your website and your recipes.
