Burrito Bowl

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.

Burrito Bowl
2 cups brown rice
1 cup canned black beans
1 cup baked chicken- diced or shredded
Taco seasoning
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.

1 "bowl" = 11 points (points plus)



  1. Dayna, your burrito bowl look awesome. What a great idea to make something so delicious looking to lure your hubby to take more vegetables.
