I've been trying to incorporate more salads into our weekly menus. This has proved quite difficult since the Hubby hates most salads and would rather go hungry. I've had my work cut out for me. So when I saw this recipe for Burrito Bowls I figured I could get my weekly salad in disguised as Mexican food. It worked like a charm.
2 cups brown rice
1 cup canned black beans
1 cup baked chicken- diced or shredded
1 cup low fat cheddar cheese
8 Tbsp. Guacamole
8 Tbsp. Ranch
Boil 1 cup brown rice in 2 cups water. Warm black beans. Sprinkle cooked chicken with Taco Seasoning. In a bowl layer 1/2 cup brown rice, 1/4 cup black beans, 1/4 cup chicken, lettuce and tomatoes. Top with 1/4 cup low fat cheese, 2 Tbsp. Guacamole and serve 2 Tbsp. Ranch on the side. Makes 4 servings/bowls.
