Piled high with fluffy rice, zippy chipotle lime chicken, creamy avocado crema, and all the burrito fixins’, these flavor-packed burrito bowls are going to quickly become an easy weeknight dinner favorite!
Dinner all week has been quite obviously decided, guys. It’s burrito bowls. Probably dinner and lunch too.
I’m probably not exaggerating when I say that these burrito bowls literally fit the bill anytime and all the time. ♥
Oh man. Can I even describe how much lazy dinner food like THAT up there ^^^ is basically the best thing ever? Food that certainly doesn’t look lazy but it honestly IS and those 30 minutes of prep time from start to finish just don’t lie.
Also. The avocado crema drizzled into every burrito bowl crevice is the real reason we’re here. 😉😉
Okay, I lied. The first and foremost reason these bowls came to be is because of Just BARE Chicken. I partnered up with them today to show you how completely amazing Just BARE Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts are when you’re looking for the healthiest way to get your protein from a natural chicken product.
Raised with ZERO antibiotics ever and free range as well, you can definitely notice the difference in the taste of this chicken and the possibilities are endless as far as the healthy meals you can make with it! Endless, but obviously we prefer burrito bowls, yes? ♥
No flavorless chicken allowed here! I dice up my chicken breasts and pan-fry them in olive oil with garlic and chipotle for a little zing of heat. Lime juice squeezed on top after the chicken is done cooking makes it SO flavorful!
Then comes the most fun part. Building the humanely tallest possible burrito bowl ever.
Hot cooked rice + chipotle lime chicken + lettuce, tomatoes, beans, etc + avocado crema drizzled on top + a hefty sprinkling of cilantro…
They’re obviously very loaded down with the good stuff, guys. And that is definitely no accident. ♥
