What is a Burrito Bowl?

A burrito bowl is a deconstructed burrito minus the tortilla. It consists of all your favorite ingredients – Any protein, cheese, beans, corn, salsa, sour cream, guacamole or avocado all served on a bed of rice or lettuce. My favorite burrito bowl from Chipotle is with chicken, so I had to find a way to make a homemade version.

If you are interest in a vegetarian burrito bowl, then this Chickpea Taco Meal Prep Bowl is perfect for ya or more dinner recipes here.

What are Burrito Bowl ingredients:

Cilantro Lime Rice – I used this amazing Cilantro Lime Rice made in instant pot recipe that is really good. If you don’t have an Instant Pot or wanna make a quick cilantro lime rice, then simply saute some chopped onion and garlic in vegetable oil, stir fry cooked, cooled rice and salt. Finish with lime juice and chopped cilantro. This cilantro lime rice can be used to make many Mexican burrito bowls.

Chicken Taco Meat – Ground chicken is sautéed with the Best Chicken Taco Seasoning. It is super flavorful blend of chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, cumin powder, coriander powder, paprika, cayenne, ground black pepper, oregano and salt and does not come close to any store bought ones. This homemade taco seasoning is good not only on ground chicken, but also chicken thighs ( try this Spicy Mexican Chicken) and chickpeas (Chickpea Taco Bowls). 

Black beans – Drained and rinsed canned black beans

Corn – Leftover grilled corn or defrosted frozen corn works well

Salsa – Use your favorite kind of salsa or pico de gallo.

Avocado – Ain’t a homemade chipotle bowl chicken without avocado or you could use this avocado crema instead

Cheese – Shredded cheddar or Mexican blend works well

Lime – A squeeze goes a long way

Jalapeno – Optional

Cilantro  – Not optional

It may seem like a huge laundry list but, each and every component is easy to prepare and can be refrigerated separately to make ground chicken burrito bowl anytime.

Chili powder is one of the traditional spices that you will use when you are cooking a dog. Most people enjoy this type of chili because of the taste, but it should never be cooked in large amounts. This is because too much of the chili powder can make a hot dog taste bitter and it can cause a dog to have a burning sensation when it is cooked.
