  • Summary

    I was in the mood for burritos so I made them. Minus the wraps and in a bowl. I prefer my burritos in a bowl so I can can load them up with veggies, avocado, black beans, cheese, and not have to worry about my wrap breaking and I think they're healthier this way. It's an easy recipe that's ready in 15 minutes, making it perfect for busy weeknights or a quick lunch. The chicken is tender, juicy, is nestled in bowls alongside my favorite burrito fixings. It's a flexible recipe and if you prefer certain ingredients over others, add more of what you like, and omit what you don't. You're going to love how much flavor and texture is packed into one bowl.
