Easy Burrito Bowls

I am always looking for meals that my kids will eat without complaining. Don’t get me wrong, they’re really good eaters and eat almost everything I cook.  But having 3 kids, the chances of at least one person not liking the meal are pretty high.

One of my girls doesn’t enjoy Mexican, so I was fully prepared for her to turn her nose up at these burrito bowls. Surprisingly, I was wrong…All 3 kids LOVED these! And they were super easy, so WIN-WIN for Mom!

Ingredients:

Brown Rice

Chicken Breasts

Seasoning of choice (I used cumin, chili powder, garlic salt, salt, and pepper)

Variety of mix-ins (avocado, black beans, lettuce, cheese, tomatoes, and sour cream)

Directions:

  1. Heat oil in skillet. Season chicken. Place in skillet. Flip several times until cooked.
  2. Cook rice according to package directions.
  3. While chicken and rice are cooking, chop and prepare your mix-ins.
  4. Assemble bowl to liking.

The girls loved being able to choose their own ingredients.

Kid Approved!

They even asked for seconds!

Cauliflower Rice + Chicken & Veggies

A few weeks ago, I found a fun section at Walmart next to the frozen vegetables. There was riced cauliflower, zucchini spirals, carrot spirals, and more! I grabbed a few packs, having no clue what I would do with them.

This week, I used the riced cauliflower with some things I had on hand.

Ingredients:

(Get the Everything seasoning at Trader Joe’s or Amazon!)

Directions:

1. Heat oil in skillet Season chicken(I used 3 strips) with Everything seasoning and pepper before cooking.

2. Sauté sweet potatoes in skillet with oil.

3. Microwave cauliflower in bag. Season with salt/pepper.

4. Microwave green beans.

5. After I put it on my plate, I realized I wanted it all mixed together so you could just dump it all in a bowl together!

I love that it makes enough for 2 meals! Great for supper and lunch the next day, or meal prep for 2 lunches.
