Easy chipotle-style Quinoa Bowls

Hi friends! If you’re anything like me you LOVE chipotle, but HATE the calories and cost. This week for a good meal-prep, I created these yummy Chipotle-style quinoa bowls. They’re super easy and made with “pantry” ingredients–something I like to do to keep costs down while prepping meals.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb Chicken Breast
  • 1 cup quinoa, cooked as directed
  • 1/2 container cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1.5 avocados (we save the extra avocado for avocado toast the next morning)
  • Lime juice
  • 1 tbsp. Chili Powder
  • 1/4 tsp. Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 tsp. Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1/4 tsp. Dried Oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. Paprika
  • 1 1/2 tsp. Ground Cumin
  • 1 tsp. Sea Salt

To cook:

  • Trim the Chicken breasts, butterfly cut, and place into zipblock freezer bag
  • Combine spices into the bag, toss with the chicken.
  • Bake chicken for 20 minutes on 350.
  • Meanwhile, pit and slice avocado. I cut my slices into smaller bits to mix in the quinoa.
  • Mix quinoa, tomato, and avocado together.

& You’re ready to serve! Mine created 5 meals, separated out for Scott and I for lunches. Serve garnished with your favorite toppings! I went for just cheese, but you could easily add sour cream, salsa, or even a spicy hot sauce to this easy recipe.

    1. So avocado is a fat which is part of why it’s so yummy… I would put the chunks of avocado on the side for yourself and maybe have a little sour cream or cheese to add on to his bowl so he still gets the creaminess. And salsa of course for you guys!
