Chicken Burrito Bowls

This is a great, quick meal that can be customized to each persons taste.  I love meals like that because there is less complaining or whining about a certain ingredient.  You could make this with steak, ground beef, pork, tofu, or however else you like.  You can add corn or use a spicier chiles.  It is completely up to you!

Chicken Burrito Bowls
2 Chicken Breasts, diced small
1/4 Cup Taco Seasoning
1 Cup Rice
2 Tomatoes, diced small
1 Anaheim Chile, diced small
1/2 Red Onion, diced small
3 Garlic Cloves, minced
2 TBS Chicken Broth
1 can Black Beans
1-2 tsp Taco Seasoning
2-4 TBS Cilantro
1 TBS Butter
1 Lime
Salt and Pepper

I prepared the Pico De Gallo the night before to help blend all the flavors

  • Combine tomatoes, onion, garlic, 1/2 cilantro, chile and then season with salt, pepper, and juice from 1/2 lime.  Cover and refrigerate
  • When ready to prepare the meal start by cooking the rice as directed on the package
  • Meanwhile coat chicken in taco seasoning and cook until no longer pink (I added 1/4 water as needed to the pan to prevent chicken from sticking and burning)
  • Drain beans and put in a microwave safe bowl
  • Add chicken broth and taco seasoning then cook 1-1/2 to 2 minutes or until heated through
  • When rice is done add butter, juice from 1/2 lime, rest of cilantro, salt and pepper to taste.  Combine well
  • Layer rice, beans, chicken, and pico then enjoy!
You can top with hot sauce, sour cream, avocado, or whatever other toppings you like.  Easy peasy and delicious!
