Dinner Idea: DIY Chipotle Steak Bowl

IMG_5272 copy

Hey guys!  I’m the biggest fan of Chipotle and to be more specific their Steak Bowls.  For us during the week, by the time CJ get’s home from work and having a good routine for Nola’s bedtime, it’s just easier to have dinner at home.  So to get my Chipotle fix the past month I’ve made these at home at least once a week.  This post is less of a recipe and more of a dinner idea/assembly of what you need to make this because it’s really that simple.  If anyone’s like me I tend to have a handful of dinner’s that are put into rotation so I love getting other ideas.

Here’s what you need to make this tasty Chipotle Wannabe Steak Bowl.

1 Steak (cooked to your liking and sliced)
3 Cups of white or brown rice (add lime juice, cilantro & salt)
1 Red Onion
1 Red Pepper
1 Green Pepper
1 Can of Black Beans
1 Can of Sweet Corn (frozen or fresh works too of course)
Pico de Gallo
Sour Cream
Cheese (shredded cheddar or queso fresco)
Salt and pepper to taste
Lettuce (I don’t add it, but that’s part of a Chipotle bowl so add if you like!)

This was enough for 2 adults and 1 toddler

You could season the steak prior to cooking with cumin and chili powder, but I enjoyed ours with just salt and pepper.  Right before serving add to rice the juice from 1 lime, a handful of cilantro and salt and pepper to taste.  Fry the onion and peppers, add salt and pepper to taste.  Heat the black beans and corn.  Then all that’s left is the assembly of your choice.  Easy, right!?!

Last night I made this and just piled everything on top of each other.  Other nights I nicely put each ingredient in separate piles.  The great thing about making this at home is if you are hungrier than one bowl you can just get some more.  The amount on my plate last night was the size of TWO Chipotle bowls and I ate it all.  I was simultaneously horrified I ate that much and also at the same time proud, which the latter scares me even more because why would I be proud of that?!  Anyways, make this, it’s delicious, easy and husband and toddler approved!!
