Grilled Chicken Burrito Bowl

One day I wanted a burrito bowl from Chipotle and then remembered Chipotle is gross so I decided to make one myself. This is a basic recipe that can be tweaked according to your needs.

Time: 45 – 75 minutes

Serves: 2 – 4


– 1 lb of chicken breast

– 1 large can of black beans (retain the juice)

– 1 cup dry rice

– Cheese of your choice (I used a 4 cheese Mexican blend)

– 2 juicy limes

– A bunch of cilantro

– 2 – 4 RIPE Avocados (depending on how much guacamole you want)

– Adobo Sauce (You can buy this at the store or make your own. If you choose to make your own, I’ll explain how to below.)

Ingredients for Adobo Sauce: 4 dried ancho chiles; 4 dried guajillo chiles; 2 teaspoons ginger (fresh or ground); 1 teaspoon of ground cumin; 1.5 teaspoons of kosher salt; and half a teaspoon of black pepper

– Salsa of your choice (I made my own simple salsa. If you want to make this salsa, fill a blender with three tomatoes, two tomatillos, half a red onion, a few jalapenos or whatever other peppers you have available, a teaspoon of salt, lime juice, and cilantro to taste. Pulse a few times until blended and at the thickness you want.)
