Here’s what I love about these chicken burrito bowls. They can be made in a way that all the toppings can be put on the table for each person in the family to decide what they want. In our house, I put the brown rice and chicken in everyone’s bowl, and then get to choose which veggies and how much they would like to add.
My kids are in love with bell peppers, so that tends to get set out at every meal to ensure they are getting a good serving of veggies.
Just to give you an idea, here’s how this meal usually looks once we’ve assembled our own bowls:
Their plate: Plain chicken, brown rice, cheddar cheese and bell peppers.
My plate: Saucy chicken, brown rice, bell peppers, spinach, black beans, avocado, and greek yogurt (when mixed up in this bowl, it tastes just like sour cream!)
Also, if you have a kiddo who doesn’t love sauce on their meat (like mine), this recipe also has an option to take out some of the cooked chicken before you add in the sauce. So the kids can have Plain Jane chicken and you can have all the yummy sauciness you want!
I can’t wait to hear what you think about this summer meal suggestions series!
