I love pretty much any dinner in a bowl.

A nice bed of rice or veggies, some protein, a little freshness, maybe a sauce or dressing? I’m in.

Whether it’s a bowl of butter chicken with fresh broccoli or green beans, island rice bowls, or sweet potato burrito bowls like these, I love that it’s an all-in-one kind of meal. I also love that everyone can make their bowl the way they like it, which means less fussing or fighting at the table.

Here’s all you need to get started on these chipotle sweet potato burrito bowls…

START WITH THE SWEET POTATOES! HERE’S WHAT GOES INTO MY ROASTED CHIPOTLE SWEET POTATOES…

DICED SWEET POTATOES. Diced sweet potatoes are the backbone of these sweet potato burrito bowls. You can use any variety of sweet potatoes you like, then you’ll toss them with things like…

OLIVE OIL. Good quality olive oil helps all those yummy seasonings stick. We LOVE Queen Creek Olive Mill olive oils. Their balanced oil is our go-to for everyday cooking. (Use code “onelovelylife” for 10% off your first order!)

CHIPOTLE CHILI POWDER. A little bit smoky, a little bit savory, a little bit spicy. Chipotle chili powder gives these potatoes some kick and makes the flavor amazing.

CUMIN. Then, to play up the Tex-Mex flavors even more, I like to add some cumin. It’s lovely with the chipotle chili powder.

SALT. Lastly, chipotle sweet potatoes wouldn’t be the same without salt!

NOW, BUILD A BOWL! HERE’S WHAT YOU CAN ADD TO MAKE SWEET POTATO BURRITO BOWLS

You can easily serve chipotle sweet potato burrito bowls to a group with all kinds of dietary needs or restrictions. Serving someone paleo or doing a Whole30? They can build a bowl with chicken, beef or pork, veggies, guacamole, and cauliflower rice. Vegans and vegetarians can fill their bowls with beans, rice, sweet potatoes, and fresh veggies.

BLACK BEANS OR PINTO BEANS. Beans are a great pairing with sweet potatoes and do a great job adding some plant-based protein to the dish. We love these easy Instant Pot black beans! 

RICE OR CAULIFLOWER RICE. Rice or cauliflower rice make a great bed for burrito bowls. Try our arroz verde (green rice), cilantro-lime rice, or cauliflower rice!

LETTUCE OR SLAW. I love the fresh crunch of some lettuce or slaw in my sweet potato burrito bowls. My honey lime cilantro slaw is my all-time favorite to add to bowls and tacos!

SALSA + GUACAMOLE + OR A YUMMY DRIZZLE. Then, you can dress this up with some extra flavor boosters like:

FRESH HERBS OR VEGGIES. Feel free to add extras like grilled peppers and onions, cilantro, corn, etc. You can add anything you like!

TIPS & TRICKS FOR THE BEST SWEET POTATO BURRITO BOWLS:

ARE THESE SWEET POTATOES SPICY? Everyone has their own spice tolerance, but I’d say these definitely have some kick to them. If you have kids with extra sensitive tastebuds, or don’t tolerate spice well, you may want to decrease the chipotle powder to 1/4 tsp instead of 1/2 tsp. or you can simply use regular chili powder instead.

I DON’T HAVE CHIPOTLE CHILI POWDER. CAN I USE REGULAR CHILI POWDER INSTEAD? You sure can! They won’t be as spicy, but they will definitely taste delicious.

I’VE GOT A MEAT-LOVER IN MY HOUSE. COULD I ADD MEAT TO THESE? Absolutely. Here are the three proteins I’d recommend:

MEAL PREPPING? TRY THESE BOWLS! If you’re meal prepping, these chipotle sweet potato burrito bowls are your kitchen buddy. I love these glass meal prep containers for meals like this!

  1. Silly question but are those black bean just regular old canned black beans? Just curious as to what would work best with this. Thanks!

    1. Lucy – Not a silly question at all! They’re just canned black beans that I rinsed off. You could stir in a spoonful or two of salsa if you want to jazz them up a bit, but I found that the sweet potatoes were kind of the star of the show.

  2. I can’t express my love for these Chipotle Sweet Potato Burrito Bowls! The flavor is gorgeous, I LOVE the smokiness from the chipotle chili powder, and mixed with all the other fixings? It’s to die for! I don’t even miss the meat!

    1. THANK YOU so much for taking the time to leave a review!!! It’s so helpful.

      I’m so glad you love them as much as we do–I LOVE the sweet potatoes so much! We eat these at least once a month!

    1. Ooh yum! I love broccoli slaw!

      So glad you loved the recipe. Thank you SO MUCH for leaving a review–it’s so helpful! 🙂

  3. Making this tonight for my vegetarian friend… can’t wait! But question: do you serve the sweet potatoes and/or cauliflower rice still warm or do you let cool first?

    1. Austyn – It’s totally personal preference. I usually serve it when it’s warm, but it’ll be delicious at room temperature, too.:)

  4. It was amazing. Lots of flavor and variety! My husband and 6 kids ranging from 10 down to 9 months all loved it😊 what fun designing our own bowls. Definitely a keeper recipe, thank you!

  5. This is SOOOO GOOD! Ohmygosh, this was a hit with the whole family. I used your honey-lime slaw and tomatillo ranch dressing, along with everything else in the bowl, and I can’t gush enough about the combined flavor.

    This is the first recipe I’ve tried here, and I’m excited to try more. Thank you!

  6. I’m going to try this but was wonderingi you had tried it using an air fryer? I live full-time in my RV and haven’t mastered my oven.

    1. I haven’t made them in an air fryer yet, but I TOTALLY think they’d work! I’d recommend that you use similar roasting instructions (same basic time and temperature). Just stop to shake the potatoes around a few times during the cooking for even browning. And depending on the size of your fryer, you may need to add a few extra minutes to the cook time 🙂 Can’t wait to hear how it goes!
