So, we all know everyone loves Chipotle. And if they don’t, they need their head examined. Fresh ingredients (some of which are even organic) make its lighter take on Tex-Mex so wonderfully delicious!
But, have you ever looked at the nutrition facts online? Its not nearly as healthy as you might think. Even the salad I typically get weighs in at almost 700 calories! 700 calories!!
I’m a little ashamed to admit that I got a new crock pot for my birthday in April and have yet to use it…but this recipe definitely was a great way to break it in! I plopped it in before work and it was ready when I got home. Not to mention, my house smelled heavenly!
(See, it still has one of the stickers on it!)
Ok, now I have another confession: I have never made real rice. I’m not a huge rice fan so I’ve always just gone with the flavored packages or boil-in-a-bag kinds. So this was my first attempt at actually cooking rice.
This recipe might be the only way I eat rice from now on. I added the juice of an entire lime instead of a 1/2 as Skinny Taste’s recipe calls for because I love the flavor of lime juice but my goodness was it good!!
Then I started creating my burrito bowl starting with my rice.
Added some of the Slow Cooked Pork Carnitas.
Then I topped it with a dollop of fat free sour cream, cheddar cheese and Sriracha. I have to say I was amazed at how much this tasted like the real thing! Everyone can always use to cut back on eating out to save money and a few extra calories and this will definitely do the trick.
Now if only I could figure out how to make those delicious tortilla chips with lime salt lower calorie…
But tomorrow is Friday so enjoy your weekend
