Chipotle Burrito Bowl

A customizable dinner for a flavorful weeknight meal - perfect for accommodating the whole family!



Ingredients 1 cup Cauliflower crumbles/rice (can also use brown rice or quinoa)

1/2 tbsp Olive oil

2 clove(s) Garlic (minced)

1 Lime (juiced)

2 tbsp Cilantro (coriander) (fresh, chopped)

Beef, ground, extra lean (or shredded chicken)

1/4 tsp Cumin

1/3 tbsp Chipotle Paste (optional)

1 medium Red onion (cut into strips)

1 medium pepper(s) Green bell pepper (cut into strips)

1 medium pepper(s) Red bell pepper (cut into strips)

1/2 tsp Oregano, dried

1/4 tsp Red pepper flakes (optional)

1/2 tsp Sea salt, fine

1/4 tsp Black pepper

1 head Lettuce, romaine (shredded)

4 tbsp Guacamole (store-bought or homemade)

4 tbsp Salsa, ready-to-serve (store-bought or homemade)

Instructions Step 1: In a blender or food processor, chop the cauliflower until it resembles grains of rice. Step 2: In a skillet over medium heat, add the olive oil and garlic, then cook for 30-60 seconds until fragrant. Add the cauliflower to the skillet and cook, stirring regularly, until the cauliflower begins to brown (5-8 minutes). Transfer the cauliflower to a bowl, squeeze in the juice of one lime, add the fresh cilantro, mix to combine, and set aside. Step 3: Add the ground beef, cumin, and chipotle paste to the skillet and cook over medium heat for 10 minutes, or until beef is cooked. Set aside on a plate or glass bowl/container. Step 4: Add the red onion strips to the skillet and sauté for 3 minutes over medium heat. Add green and red bell pepper strips and sauté for 5 more minutes. Add the oregano, red pepper flakes (optional), salt and black pepper and continue cooking until the vegetables are soft (about 2 minutes). Step 5: To assemble the bowls, simply divide the cauliflower rice, ground beef, and sautéed vegetables between 4 bowls and add the toppings. Notes: Optional Toppings: corn, jalapeno slices, diced tomato, shredded cheese, spinach, corn chips, reduced-fat sour cream or 0% MF plain Greek yogurt, siracha, etc. Tips:

  • For a vegetarian or vegan-friendly option, replace the ground beef with firm tofu, beans, or lentils of choice.

  • Swap out sour cream for a dollop of plain Greek yogurt for a lower-fat, higher-protein option.
