We’ve all tried the burrito bowls from Chipotle by now, and there’s just something so delicious and comforting about them. While I think Chipotle holds its own in being relatively healthy-ish for a fast food company, I always, like always, opt to re-make stuff at home with more fresh ingredients and being mindful of the nutritional content. And so of course, I made my own chicken burrito bowl at home.
This Mexican-style Chicken Burrito Bowl is loaded with mixed greens, beans, corn, tomatoes, pan-seared chicken, Greek Yogurt and out-of-this-world homemade guacamole! I mean look at all those beautiful colors.
