I haven’t always been a big fan of bowls, but I’ve been changing my tune after seeing how convenient they are. I made this Chicken Burrito Bowl in about 30 minutes of total cooking time and of course any of the ingredients can be substituted or additional ingredients can be added (substitutions/additions may change the smart points value).
