Well that title was a mouthful. Anyway, I am a big Chipotle fan. There is just something about grilled meat topped with fresh veggies over cilantro lime rice. I found this recipe on Pinterest and figured, why not?! I was so pleased with this homemade version, and Parker thought it tasted like something right out of Chipotle. I followed the recipe for the rice, but the burrito bowl can really be anything your little heart desires. I just mixed and matched with what I had on hand, and it made for quite a tasty little dinner!
Cilantro Lime Rice
4 cups cooked brown rice
2 avocados, ripe
2 Tbsp lime juice
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1 Tbsp minced garlic
salt and pepper, to taste
Burrito Bowl Fixins (just suggestions, choose what you like!)
Grilled steak or chicken (make it easy and buy the pre grilled meat in the frozen foods section)
extra cilantro for garnish
1. Mash avocados in a large bowl. Stir in lime juice, cilantro, cumin, and garlic. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
2. Add warm cooked rice and stir to combine.
3. Top rice with your meat and burrito bowl fixins and serve warm.
So simple, but so yummy. Enjoy!
