Chicken Burrito Bowl

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.

      At least 20 minutes, but you can marinade it overnight too if you’d like!

      Sorry for the delay! For the chicken, I used a type of taco seasoning that I have from Spice Cave. You can use any taco seasoning of choice or keep it simple with salt, pepper, olive oil, cumin and paprika.
