Yummy Homemade Chipotle Burrito Bowls!
By bclark565r on August 13, 2013
I love Chipotle. I would eat there every day if I could! I always get a burrito bowl and they're absolutely delicious! So to save a little money, I decided to try to make them at home. I must say, they turned out much better than I expected!
I bought boneless skinless chicken breasts and just cooked them in a pan with a little olive oil, salt, and pepper. I always make a ton, and then the rest I can whip up in just minutes whenever! I use one chicken breast per bowl.
For the rice, you can really use any kind. I love jasmine rice, so that's what I used. You just follow the cooking instructions on the bag. I usually make about a cup of uncooked rice, and that's enough for two or three bowls. I love Chipotle's cilantro-lime rice, so I take a small bunch of cilantro leaves, chop them up and mix them right into the cooked rice! For the lime, I use the zest and juice of about half of a lime (It just depends on how much rice you make and how much lime flavor you want!)
I always add black beans to mine, but you can use whatever kind of beans you like too! I just take some from a can, but of course you can cook your own.
Then we get to the to good stuff! The guacamole and salsa! My absolute favorite. I didn't like guac until this year, and now I can't get enough of it! I just make a simple guac with this recipe:
2 ripe Hass avocado
1 clove garlic
1/4 of a white onion, chopped
Zest and Juice of 1/2 lime
Cilantro, to taste
Pinch of salt, to taste
But you can also find a really yummy recipe here.
And it's that simple! It's so easy and so yummy, we make them all the time! Also much cheaper than spending $8 a Chipotle every time! Enjoy :)
