Servings 4

Ingredients
  

  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp coriander
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • Dash of Salt & pepper
  • Pico de gallo *you can buy this pre-made or make it yourself.. 1 small tomato diced, 1/8 cup diced onion, 1 Tbsp diced jalapeno, little chopped fresh cilantro, 1 Tbsp lime juice, pinch of salt & pepper.
  • 2 cups cooked rice *I used white rice and added a squeeze of fresh lime juice, any rice is fine, if following purple use brown rice for 0SP
  • 1 cup corn *canned or frozen *cook according to package
  • 1 cup reduced fat shredded cheese
  • Sliced avocado *optional

Instructions
 

  • Cook the rice according to the package, for 4 servings I made 2 cups of rice so each serving has 1/2 cup.
  • Spray a large pan with some cooking spray and cook the ground chicken over medium heat, stir in all the seasonings and mix well, if it seems a little dry feel free to add a splash of water.
    Remove from pan and set aside.
  • Cook the corn according to the package, you can also add black beans if you'd like.
  • Make the pico de gallo if you did not buy this pre-made. Dice the tomato, onion and jalapeno pepper. Stir in the lime juice and salt/pepper. Add a little chopped cilantro.
  • Now it is time to build the bowls, start with the rice and ground chicken, then add the pico de gallo, corn, shredded cheese (1/4 cup per bowl is what I used) and finish off with some avocado. These are great to make for meal prep, they will be good in the fridge for a few days, I would add the sliced avocado only when you are ready to eat it.

Notes

Points for these burrito bowls will really depend on what program you are following and if you do any extra add-ins. I am pointing them based on what I used *minus the avocado as I feel that is an optional topping.
Smart points- blue 4 using the WW recipe builder *points are for the rice and cheese
Smart points- green 8 using WW recipe builder *points are for the rice, chicken, corn and cheese.
Smart points- purple 1 using WW recipe builder *points are for the cheese and this is when using brown rice.
