For these homemade chipotle burrito bowls you’re going to need a large bowl for your main ingredients, a small bowl to mix your dressing ingredients, and a storage container for your dressing.
Add right into your bowl 3/4 cup of microwaved brown rice, 3 cups of chopped up romaine, 1/2 cup of drained & rinsed reduced sodium black beans, 1/2 cup of whole kernel corn, 1/4 cup of reduced fat Mexican blend cheese, 1/2 chopped up Roma tomato, 1/2 chopped up avocado, 8 ounces of cooked protein of your choice, 3 tablespoons of salsa, 1/2 serving of crushed up tortilla chips, a couple squirts of some lime juice, and your healthy dressing!

What precooked protein should you use for these quick chipotle burrito bowls? You can use chicken (rotisserie is great for these!), tuna, lean ground beef, turkey, tofu, or whatever else you want.
Healthy Burrito Bowls Dressing
How do you make a healthy chipotle dressing? Simple! Mix together 1/2 container of plain fat free Greek yogurt, 1 teaspoon of chili powder, 1/2 teaspoon of crushed chipotle pepper, and 1 teaspoon of minced garlic.
Store whatever dressing you don’t use for your next chipotle burrito bowl.
You can easily substitute any ingredient you don’t like or don’t have access to! Hate spicy things? Don’t add the chili powder or chipotle pepper! Don’t like Greek yogurt? Use sour cream! Change up your beans, spices, herbs, and/or flavors or salsa to switch things up when you get bored!
Meal prep trip? Wait to put your dressing on until your eat it so that your quick chipotle burrito bowls don’t get soggy.
