About this Recipe

This restaurant classic is now easier and healthier to make with Brava! This bowl has a base of rice that is topped with slices of chipotle chicken, cumin-spiced black beans, salsa, avocado and a delicious chipotle sauce. This recipe makes four bowls, which is great for a family meal or as meal prep for a week’s worth of lunches. Chef Erin recommends making cilantro lime rice beforehand for this recipe, the Custom Cook is available here: (FFK-CXY-ULM). There are endless opportunities to make this bowl your own. For instance, if you have sour cream or shredded cheese on hand, go ahead and add it in if you would like. Feel free to get creative!
