Burrito Bowl at Home

 Do you guys read Dinner: A Love Story? If not, you should be. Jenny excels at writing in a relatable way, and especially cooking for picky eaters. I was reading her blog searching for dinner inspiration for my picky eater (Sean) and stumbled upon an incredibly brilliant, why-didn't-I-think-of-that idea: make Chipotle-inspired burrito bowls at home!

That way everyone can get the toppings they want, and you can pack in a bunch of veggies. It's also perfect because you can make it as hard or as easy as you want, as Jenny points out. We went with EASY.

 I cooked up chicken breasts in the same seasonings you would use for tacos, then added peppers and onions, along with a few squeezes of lime juice.

And we served it on top of cilantro and lime-flavored basmati rice (honestly, it didn't make that much of a difference...any rice would work). I added avocado to mine ...I'm still trying to get Sean on board with avocado. It was delicious and easy and breezy. Add it to the regular round-up!

dump avocado in a bowl, dump a can of decent white albacore tuna on it, salt and pepper. so delish. get sean to try that? i feel like he MAYBE doesn't like tuna. if i remember correctly.
