Chipotle fans, you’ll adore these Chipotle Chicken Burrito Bowls! Healthy, easy, incredible.
My mom is a couple years shy of 70. After all these years, she still surprises me. I’m always amazed at how she tackles life with seemingly ceaseless energy despite her aches and pains.
Though decidedly old-fashioned, Mom is amazingly willing to try new things. Like trek through unknown woodsy trails after dark while fleeing mean Mosquitos. Like driving hours of windy mountain roads to go trout fishing with us. She hates fishing.
And downing humongous Chipotle burritos filled with every (yes, every) topping choice offered. We’re talking football-sized burritos that even the guy behind the counter can’t believe he’s actually wrapping up.
It actually was a surprise to me that Mom even liked Chipotle, given that she’s a die-hard first gen Chinese grandma who’s mainly eaten and cooked Chinese fare all her life. I have zero memories of guac filled burritos growing up.
Imagine my shock when her recent visit with us included an impromptu dinner at Chipotle one night and she eagerly devoured the biggest chicken, rice, and bean burrito any of us has ever seen.
Like I said, she got every single topping there was.
Which brings me to my own Chipotle darling.
My personal favorite Chipotle offering is the yumalicious chicken burrito bowl. I get mine outfitted with plenty of greens, black beans, corn, onions, tomatoes, and cheddar.
Happily massed with tender cilantro lime rice and tasty chicken.
It’a about time these Chipotle Chicken Burrito Bowls made the scene here.
Particularly in the summer when farm fresh produce is wildly popular, you may already have all the ingredients you need for your chicken burrito bowl.
These bowls are highly personalized to suit your own tastes. This is your own foodie rockfest. Go ahead and add, subtract, or modify according to what tempts your tummy. Customize it for your favorite peeps.
Top it with guac, sour cream, or salsa. Bring in the tortilla chips if you want a bit of crunch.
The cilantro-lime rice is a fantastic base for burrito bowls. I could and did eat cilantro-lime rice by the spoonful before mixing it all up into that colorfully gorgeous mess of a meal.
This is the best kind of mess. Enjoy.Print

2. Best Easy Mexican Rice. It took many, many recipes to finally land on this fluffy and tasty one. You’ll say bye-bye to all boxed rice mixes.
3. Cuban Rice and Beans. This is SUCH a crazy delish rice dish. Rice ‘n beans never tasted so good.
