There Was Only One Choice for Dinner!

There was a fierce battle for which Mexican themed dinner would mark the close of Cinco de Mayo 2010!

Would it be a Tortilla Egg Scramble?

Cheesy, gooey Vegetarian Enchiladas?

How about spicy Chili Verde?

or maybe even Crock Pot Santa Fe Chicken?

Sorry, lova ya’, but none of these meals would do, of course, when Homemade Chipotle Burrito Bowls were waiting in the wings! It only takes 4 steps, didn’t you know?!

Nothing captures the celebration and zing of Cinco de Mayo quite like brightly flavored rice, spiced chicken and fresh salsa! Ok, maybe a margarita…or two. ;)

I made my burrito bowls the same way I usually do.

Oh, this was new actually, today I started with a bed of torn up baby spinach as my base.

Then I layered on lime, cilantro & salt seasoned brown rice, smoky, spicy black beans, grilled chicken seasoned with the same spice blend as the beans,

and salsa! I used my favorite, 5-minute salsa recipe, which tastes so incredibly fresh, and literally takes 5 minutes to make. Nice!

Did you celebrate Cinco de Mayo in a special way? A themed dinner and/or drinks, perhaps? ;)
