Homemade Chipotle Bowls

I love chipotle, however, I often don’t want to drive out and get it, or pay for it to be delivered. Though you can’t always get the flavors spot on, you can get pretty damn close making your own bowl at home.

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Cooked Basmati Rice
  • 2 TSP Lime Juice
  • Cilantro
  • 1 LB Chicken Breast
  • 1/2 TSP Chili Powder
  • 1/2 TSP Cumin
  • 1/2 TSP Cayenne
  • Spinach/Lettuce, cut into ribbons
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, diced
  • Tomatoes, diced
  • 1 White Onion, diced
  • 1 Can Black beans
  • Taco Cheese
  • Sour Cream/Greek Yogurt

Let’s Get Cooking

Combine the cooked rice with 2 TSP lime juice and chopped cilantro, mix throughly and add salt to taste if needed.

Combine the half of the diced onions + tomatoes and toss with salt. Set aside.

In a pan, heat olive oil, add in garlic + onion. Saute until fragrant. Add in the drained black beans + salt. Once the beans begin to cook, mash a few of the beans and continue to stir them in. Once soft, remove from heat.

Heat a skillet with olive oil to med-high heat. Add the chicken breast and season with the chili powder + cumin + cayenne + salt + pepper. Cook about 8 minutes each side or until done. Remove from heat and place on a cutting board to cool.

Now it’s time to combine your bowl: Start with rice, then chicken, your cooked beans, your salsa, cheese, spinach, and sour cream or greek yogurt to top!

Made with Love,
