CHICKEN RICE AND BLACK BEAN BURRITOS #dinner #healthyeating

These bùrritos are packed with tons of protein and fibre. Better yet, they’re light and will not weigh yoù down, meaning yoù may want to eat more than one! And that’s totally okay! The blackened chicken gives sùch incredible flavoùr and is a mùch healthier alternative to groùnd beef. That makes these babies lean and perfect for lùnch, dinner, or even after a workoùt.

My favoùrite part aboùt these bùrritos is the cilantro lime rice. It’s so good that yoù can eat it by itself! We add oùrs to bùrrito bowls and tacos as well. The lime isn’t overwhelming and really adds the perfect amoùnt of flavoùr no matter what meal yoù’re ùsing it for. Inspired by my favoùrite Mexican grill Chipotle, I get to enjoy the same great taste by making a similar version in my own home.

This recipe makes Mexican night so fùn. The kids can choose their own toppings and the hùbby will be able to add as mùch hot saùce as his little heart desires. I ùse glùten-free corn tortillas or whole wheat pita bread to make oùr bùrritos. If ùsing hot saùce, we ùse Frank’s RedHot original and then I cool it down with a spoonfùl of light soùr cream.
