First, I had to prep the marinade:
I put about a pound and a half of chicken tenders in a ziploc bag with 2 chopped up chipotle peppers in adobo, juice from half a lime, and a handful of chopped cilantro.
In a separate dish, I mixed one pouch of fajita mix in with 1/4 cup of olive oil. (I just noticed the tiny fingers in this picture. My daughter was helping with the food prep. ;)
I mixed this mixture in with the chicken and made sure each piece was completely covered. I marinated it for about an hour.
Grill it up!
While the chicken was grilling a sauteed green peppers and red onions in a pan.
I chopped up the chicken and assembled my burrito bowl. I couldn't wait to try a bite. It was awesome!
I layered my bowl with brown rice (the Steamfresh kind from the freezer section), corn kernels (I had left over corn on the cob), peppers and onions, pico de gallo, chicken, a sprinkle of cheese, and light sour cream.
It was really just so good! I think I would omit the sour cream next time. There is so much flavor, I really didn't need it. May as well save on the calories!
