Rainbow Chicken Burrito Bowl (Gluten Free)


I am, admittedly, a burrito addict. My favorite burrito on earth is from Cabo Bob's in Austin. Obsessed. They have handmade tortillas cooked right in front of you, natural meats, vegetarian/vegan friendly options, organic brown rice, and a chipotle crema that is to die for. But since I rarely get my fix of CB's, I decided to recreate a burrito bowl at home.

I don't know if any Chipotle addicts are reading this, but if you are, here's a much healthier substitution! If you must eat there, here are some guidelines to help you keep it lean.


Rainbow Chicken Burrito Bowl
Serves 1-2

Ingredients
2 handfuls chopped romaine lettuce
1/2 cup brown rice (I used the frozen wild rice medley from Trader Joe's)
1 cup diced chicken or rotisserie chicken
1/4 cup pinto beans
1-2 Tbsp guacamole
3-4 diced cherry or heirloom tomatoes
Drizzle of chipotle Greek yogurt crema (see recipe below)
Optional garnishes: cilantro, pico de gallo, sliced limes

Directions

Add lettuce to the bottom of a medium bowl. Top with rice and beans, warmed or cold. Add diced chicken, guacamole, tomatoes, and any other toppings to the bowl. Drizzle with chipotle Greek yogurt crema.

Chipotle Greek Yogurt Crema**
Makes about 1 cup

Ingredients
1 chipotle pepper from a can of chipotles in adobo sauce
3/4-1 cup 0% Greek yogurt
1-2 Tbsp milk

Directions
In a food processor or blender, add all ingredients, starting with 1 tbsp of milk. I like to put mine in a squeeze bottle and have a thinner consistency of the sauce. If you like thicker sauce, use less milk. For thinner, add more. Also, sometimes the chipotles stop up the squeeze bottle, so make sure to blend well.

**The crema should keep for about 1 week. I like to use on fish tacos, eggs, and salads for a little extra zing.

Enjoy!
