Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive-oil
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 4 cups Prepared brown rice, quinoa, or cauliflower rice
  • 1/4 cup scallions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tbsp lime-juiced
  • 1.25 pound ground-chicken
  • 2 tbsp taco-seasoning
  • 2 cups black-beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 cups frozen-corn, defrosted
  • 1 pint-cherry-tomatoes, quartered
  • 1/2 cup greek-yogurt
  • 2 tbsp chipotle-in-adobe-sauce
  • 1 tbsp lime-juice

Instructions

  • Heat one teaspoon of oil into a large non-stick saute pan. Toss in garlic with a pinch of salt and sauté until fragrant.
  • Add cauliflower rice to the pan along with salt, pepper, and chicken broth (or water). Pop on the lid and cook for 3-4 minutes or until the rice is tender. Transfer to a bowl and allow to cool before stirring in scallions, cilantro, and lime juice. Set aside.
  • Heat a large non-stick saute pan over medium heat, add in remaining oil and ground chicken. Season with salt and pepper and break into crumbles with a rubber or wooden spatula until the chicken is in crumbles.
  • Once the chicken has turned from translucent to opaque, add in taco seasoning and stir to coat the chicken with the spices. Cook for a couple more minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Shut off the heat and allow to cool.
  • Once all of your ingredients are prepped and ready to go, you are prepared to assemble your bowls.
  • Starting on one side of your meal prep container, layer cauliflower rice, corn, black beans, chicken, and tomatoes. Repeat until you make four burrito bowls.
  • *OPTIONAL: combine greek yogurt, chipotle sauce, and lime juice. Mix well!
  • Store burrito bowls in the fridge for up to 5 days. Top with yogurt sauce before eating. Enjoy!
