I Cheated on Chipotle...


So the other night I stumbled upon a recipe that recreated Chipotle's burrito bowl.  Seeing as I had most of the necessary ingredients, I ran to the store to pick up the remaining items: cilantro, shredded cheese, and corn.

Putting it all together was definitely harder than ordering it at the restaurant, but I have to say it was so satisfying to eat!

Here's what you need:

{the base}
-shredded lettuce
-brown rice
-chopped cilantro
-1/2 lime
-refried or black beans

{the veggies}
-sauteed peppers/onions/corn

{the protein}
-protein of choice (mine was chicken)

{the toppings}
-dollop of Greek yogurt/sour cream
-shredded Mexican Cheese blend
-sliced avocado 

{the kick}
-salsa (Trader Joe's Salsa Authentica is has the BEST flavor)
-hot sauce (Cholula)

To assemble your bowl add desired ingredients.  I made my own cilantro-lime brown rice by making a bag of 3 minute rice, chopping some cilantro and squeezing half a lime.  Then I mixed it all together.  So simple.  Place the rice on top of the lettuce.  Heat up the beans, again in the microwave for ease, and place on top of the rice.  Next, cook the veggies up in some olive oil, salt pepper and add to your bowl.  Add a bit more oil to cook up your protein.  Then pile on the toppings and sauces.  

Take that Chipotle...
