Chicken & Guac Burrito Bowls

Hello Fresh is on a big tear lately after their dismissal of spokesperson Lea Michele. They have been offering a $60 off deal spread out through 4 weeks worth of kits for people who are willing to join back up. So, I took the plunge with glee. 

The first box showed up this week and out of the three meals included, we decided to start with Chicken & Guac Burrito Bowls with Long Green Pepper, Salsa Fresca & Hot Sauce Crema. It sounds good, especially with the extended description: Bowls are way past “having a moment.” They’ve become a pillar of our lunches and dinners. Why? It’s simple: everything’s better in a bowl! (Nice knowing you, plates.) But seriously, the customizable combo of carbs, protein, veggies, and a drizzle of delicious sauce cannot be denied. True to form, this Mexican-inspired rendition is fully loaded. Steamy lime rice is topped with spiced chicken, fresh salsa, a tangle of veggies, hot sauce-spiked crema, and of course, a big dollop of guacamole. In our bowl, though, guac is never extra. Sounds, great, right? It's like Chipotle or Qdoba, but at home and without a cashier pushing chips and salsa on me. 

This was super easy to prepare as it just involved cutting up vegetables, mixing sauces, and cooking chicken and rice. The guac and "Southwest spices" came pre-made and packaged. I really liked how this tasted and I'd be very eager to track down ingredients to try making this on my own. I had thought that perhaps the chicken cutlets provided were too small to make a filling meal, but I was wrong. My daughter's only complaint was that she's not a fan of having lime zest in her rice.
