If you ask me about my favorite food, hands down I’m going to tell you that it’s tacos. I have always been a fan of Taco Tuesday and do my best to celebrate on a weekly basis. But it’s not always ‘tacos’ that I’m eating, it’s usually some variety of tacos/burritos/enchiladas. So basically, any variation of meat, cheese, lettuce and guacamole. You can count me in! I’m especially fond of the burrito bowl because it doesn’t involve getting your fingers dirty and you can pile your bowl high with ingredients, much like I did with this Chicken Avocado Cilantro Burrito Bowl.
I’m pretty obsessed with these bowls because they include fresh ingredients that make you feel good about eating every bite. That’s my key to the best burrito bowl, keeping it fresh. I like to make homemade pico de gallo with tomato, onion, cilantro and jalapeno and a squeeze of lime juice. The lime will really brighten the flavor of the entire dish. If I’m planning to make burrito bowls I like to look for an unripe avocado 5-6 days before I will need it so that it will ripen properly. Mixing 1 avocado with 1 tablespoon of Litehouse Guacamole Herb Blend will make a delicious topping for any Mexican dish! I also like to sprinkle my chicken with this herb blend for added flavor.
The fun part about burrito bowls is that you can let your family create their own meal based on the ingredients that you provide! Other ingredients that you might want to consider are shredded cheese, sliced/diced jalapenos, sour cream or lettuce. I like to keep my bowls simple and colorful and top them off with OPA Avocado Cilantro Greek Yogurt Dressing as the perfect finishing touch on my bowl.
The next time that Taco Tuesday comes around I encourage you to try these Chicken Avocado Cilantro Burrito Bowls! You’ll be able to serve up a meal that even the pickiest of eaters will enjoy and it’s perfect for leftovers!
