Burrito bowls are a great recipe to use up a ton of awesome and healthy pantry staples if you’re on a weight loss journey or healthy lifestyle.  Corn, black beans, and cauliflower rice are so low in points and will help keep you full for hours depending on if you’re on the purple plan, green, or blue plan. Great for meal prepping as well. ⁠

Ingredients for Burrito Bowls (Zero Point Options) 

Chicken – When the weather is nice out grill your chicken breasts!  I’ll season my chicken breasts with fajita seasoning and cook them on the grill. The taste of grilled chicken is way better and doing it this way instead of using ground chicken actually reminds me of a real burrito bowl that you’d get at say like Chipotle or Moe’s.  Use cooking spray instead of oil to cook your chicken.  Air Fryer Chicken Breasts 

Ground Chicken – My original recipe below calls for ground chicken. I prefer these burrito bowls using grilled chicken breasts but ground chicken is just another option to do if you ever want to change it up.  99% fat-free turkey can also be used. 

Black Beans – I try to eat low sodium foods so I always look for less sodium canned black beans. Same goes with canned corn. 

Corn – This is a fun topping to put on burrito bowls in the Sumemetime. People with smokers can try my Easy Smoked Corn on the Cob 

Green Onions – optional 

Kraft Fat-Free cheese – ¼ cup of fat-free cheese is 0 points. Anything beyond that amount is more.

Plain Greek yogurt  – Greek yogurt is a great substitute for sour cream and it is zero points! 

Other Optional Toppings 

Rice – I do not like anything cauliflower but I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE rice. Rice is awesome but if you like cauliflower rice feel free to use it. I’m not stopping you! Different types of rice will be different points. I always cook a batch of whatever I have on hand and measure out ½ cup. Then I start piling on the other ingredients. 

Long grain white rice: ½ cup for 3 points 

Minute Rice White, Instant Rice, Premium Long Grain: 1 cup for 5 points 

Brown Instant Rice½ cup for 5 points
