Yummy Homemade Chipotle Burrito Bowls!

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

I use store bought salsa.  I like Tostitos salsa, but I'm not picky.  If you want to make your own, I recommend this one.

 

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 :)

 

With endless love,

Brianna.
