Naked Burrito Bowl

I don't know if I would really count this as a recipe.  You basically start with rice, beans, & optional chicken or meat of choice, and throw whatever else you're in the mood for on top!  But I served this for the three of us when Corey's sister came over a few weeks ago and she asked for the recipe so here goes!  So fun to make at home and really good!

Naked Burrito Bowl
inspired by two peas & their pod and Chipotle/Qdoba!
serves 2 to 3

Cilantro Lime Rice (see recipe below)
Black Beans
1 to 2 chicken breasts
seasoning for chicken: garlic, cumin, chili powder
1 to 2 teaspoons olive oil
Diced tomatoes
Diced red onion
Chopped cilantro
Avocado slices
Fresh lime juice
Diced mango (optional, just had it in the fridge!)
Queso (optional)
Tortilla chips (optional)

Heat olive oil in a pan.  Dice chicken and add to the pan, season, and cook through.  Layer rice, beans, chicken, then additional toppings.  Serve with tortilla chips for scooping!

1 cup uncooked rice
1 cup water
salt & pepper
2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lime juice
2 teaspoons granulated sugar
4 tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro

Cook rice according to directions per packaging, season with garlic, salt & pepper, lime juice, sugar, & cilantro.  Taste and adjust seasonings if needed.
