Snow days and Burrito bowls….

Today here in the northeast they are calling for a descent sized snow storm.  I don’t know about you but I love snow days.  It’s a reason to just stay home cozy up with the family,cook some good food, play and just relax.  Unfortunately my daughter has started back to school after the Christmas break  and my husband Mark is at work.

My son Ty, a college kid, is home on break but he is still in bed and probably won’t make an appearance before noon oh to have a kids life…some days ha ha.    So that leaves me to do what I love.. cook.

For me Chipotle Mexican Grill is one of my favorites as is my sons.  Whenever we are out and about for the day we will stop in for a bite, it’s so good. They have lots of gluten free options that makes me so happy.  Here’s their site if you’d like to check them out  That being said I thought I would try to recreate their burrito bowl for dinner today.

So before the snow has started I put my chicken breast into the crock pot with two packets of McCormick taco seasoning, mix it all around really good.  Cook for about 6 hours I put the setting on high.  On the side I will prepare brown rice according to the package directions mixed with about 3 Tablespoons of cilantro and 2 Tablespoons of lime juice.  Then for toppings we will have black beans, salsa, sour cream,cheese, 2 scallions cut up and guacamole oh I can hardly wait!  Here’s the finished product.  The top one has guacamole and cheese.  The bottom one does not.   It’s so easy to prepare and is such a wonderful comfort food…as always hope you enjoy!
