This weekend I was playing around with one of my favorite meals. I could eat a burrito bowl from either Qdoba, Chipotle, or Moes every single day. I’m trying to be a little better lately, so I thought I’d try to find a way to make my favorite meal a little healthier. I was pleasantly surprised and extremely relieved that I have found my substitute!
I was able to get 5 burrito bowls out of this
1 Large Package of Ground Turkey (I cooked it all, then took 1/2 of it to make my burrito bowls – put the other 1/2 away)
2 Tbsp Perfect Pinch Mexican Seasoning
1 Can Black Beans – drained
1 Can Rotel – gives it a kick! I will try mild next time
1 Cup brown rice (uncooked)
1 Tbsp Kickin’ Chicken Seasoning
1/2 tsp Salt
I mixed the first 4 ingredients together and let it just “cook” on low while the rice was cooking.
For the rice, I cooked it according to the instructions on the package and I put the salt and the chicken seasoning in the water – it helped SO MUCH. I do NOT like brown rice.. it’s just nasty to me, but – I could eat this right out of the pan. It made all the difference in the world!
I put approximate amounts of ingredients for my bowls into LoseIt to get a calorie count, and this is what it came up with. I didn’t include the seasonings since it was so small in each bowl. (I did measure my rice, so that’s correct)
This was SO good! SO much flavor – I don’t miss the cheese or the sour cream AT ALL. I feel like 374 calories (plus or minus a little bit) is a great alternative to the original. Especially since it tastes so good! I don’t feel like I’m missing out at all!
