Naked {Chicken} Burrito Bowls

 Yesterday morning started bright and early with a ~3 mile walk while I listened to a sermon (podcast style). I’ve been practicing this little morning routing for the past few days (since finishing the MCAT) and it’s been so lovely. A quiet morning walk, with just some scripture, some praise and my thoughts. Plus- getting out before 7 am is pretty much the only time it’s under 80+ degrees out. The highs for the rest of the week are approaching 100.. woo let’s see if I make it!

Is it wrong to repeat a church outfit for an interview the next day? By my logic, I only wore this for about an hour, so putting it on for a few more hours the next day was basically the same as wearing for one whole day. Right? 🙂

Breakfast- simple and yellow. Eggs and banana + almond butter. I’m always in more of a simple mood for breakfast, and this did just the trick.

After breakfast I drove all the way out to the mall and shopped around for a little before getting to my lunch meeting/interview a little early. Unfortunately the woman I was supposed to meet had to reschedule last minute. I ran back to my apartment after that and put together a ‘snack plate’ for lunch. Turkey, spinach, celery, goat cheese, salsa. hummus + chips. The perfect little mix.

For dinner- the star of the show!

Chicken Burrito Bowls!

This recipe is one of the simplest things I have ever made for dinner and it was ready in less than 20 minutes. Plus, you can customize your bowl with whatever toppings you like, which makes it even more delicious.

Serves 2-3

Ingredients:

  • 1/2-3/4 lb chicken (pre-cooked)
  • 16 oz frozen corn
  • 8-16 oz black beans
  • 16 oz salsa
  • Brown Rice (optional)

Topping:

  • 1 avocado
  • Shredded Mexican Cheese
  • Tortilla Chips

Directions:

1. Place the corn, black beans, and salsa into a medium sauce pan over medium heat. If you haven’t already cooked the chicken, do this in a separate pan now. You want the chicken cut into small chunks or shredded.

2. Boil water for the rice, and add it in when ready. Or, grab some frozen brown rice from Trader Joe’s and it steams itself right in the bag! Soooo easy and convenient on a busy day.

3. After the mixture is starting to get warm, add the chopped up chicken into the pot.

4. Once the mixture is hot all the way through, your job is done! Add all the toppings you want. I like to crush up a few chips to add some crunch to the bowl. Delicious!

 

It’s Treat Yourself Tuesday y’all! Treat yourself with a delicious, easy recipe (maybe mine?) because easy recipe = all the more time to relax and treat yourself any way you please :)!
