Burritos/Burrito Bowls

  • INGREDIENTS:
    • Lettuce
    • Microwaveable rice
    • Black beans
    • Corn
    • Peppers
    • Jalapeños
    • Avocado
    • Shredded cheese (I used a Mexican Blend)
    • Salsa
    • Protein options: rotisserie chicken, pre-cooked frozen shrimp, tofu, or you could make a veggie-only burrito (that is what I did here!)
    • If making into a burrito, you will also need tortillas
  • DIRECTIONS:
    • Cut your peppers, jalapeño or any other toppings, and prepare your protein option (pull some chicken from your rotisserie, warm up your frozen meat options etc). Basically, prep your stuff now so it isn’t getting cold.
    • Open your corn and beans and put a serving size of each into a microwaveable container
    • Warm up beans, corn, rice, protein, and tortilla (can do this separately or all together)
    • Build your burrito/bowl!
  • TIP: Make extra for a future meal!
  • Pros: This meal hits a lot of good nutrition points: beans provide both fiber and protein, veggies provide good nutrients and fiber, and avocado has great healthy fats and fiber!
  • Cons: I honestly love this meal, but if I am being unbiased, there are a lot of ways to make this meal unhealthy (adding a ton of cheese, sour cream, etc)
