I am an absolute Qdoba addict; I just can’t get enough of their chicken burritos and naked chicken burritos! However, I nearly dropped dead when I read the nutrition labels: one burrito (even naked) is around 1000 calories, over 100g carbs, and over 2000mg of sodium. I can’t even type that without having my stomach churn. Still, have no fear – this is no problem that a little bit of time in your kitchen cannot solve. Read on for my homemade and healthy solution.
-Salad (romaine, spring mix, spinach salad, etc.)
-Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
-Lemon or lime
-Mrs. Dash fiesta lime seasoning or McCormick’s fiesta citrus seasoning
-Guacamole/avocado (optional, mashed avocado would be the healthier option)
-Freshly shredded cheese (optional)
-Grill chicken breasts (I have a grill pan, which is the perfect option for easy kitchen cooking, yet still provides that fresh off the grill taste)
-Season both sides of chicken breasts with appropriate seasoning as cooking
-Prepare a bowl of brown rice, salad, corn and fresh salta
-Chop or shred chicken and add to bowl
-Top with a squirt of lemon or lime juice, and optional toppings (cheese, avocado/guacamole)
All ingredients were purchased at Trader Joes; I always buy/prep for more than one meal.
That unsweetened blueberry & pomegranate green tea is delish!
A grill pan is a must! So easy & always yields taste food!
You will be saying gracias to me following this healthy meal 😉
