Grilled Chicken Burrito Bowls

This grilled chicken burrito bowl was inspired by the notable chain restaurants Chipotle and Moe’s. It can be so tempting to go through their lines and simply tell them what you want: Your choice of protein, black or brown beans, white or brown rice, and finish it off with toppings (hello, Pico de Gallo!). Well, this recipe is just like that -- tailor it exactly how you want it, or even add things that Chipotle/Moe’s, etc. may not have! With this recipe, I’m making it with my personal preferences and a special grilled chicken marinade recipe. I’ll even show you how easy it is to make Pico de Gallo.

Slow Cooker Verde Carne Asada Tostadas

In honor of my husband’s favorite, I am sharing the recipe for my slow cooker carne asada tostadas with salsa verde. I have even used his favorite for this recipe -- steak! You can, of course, use whatever protein you desire, but the key ingredients are my homemade salsa verde, onions, garlic, and beef stock. This recipe is super versatile, easy, and delicious.I love this recipe because I get to use my slow cooker, so not only are you getting the juicy and tender meat you are saving time! Sundays are typically designated as my meal prep day so I will start a batch first thing in the morning. By the time dinner comes around, my husband and I will have dinner ready for that night and for the rest of the week!
