The Mexican Powerbowl @TheFoodieBuilders
Chipotle is a pretty decent quick-lunch option, we dig it. But you know what’s even better? – Homemade chipotle type bowl aka The Mexican Powerbowl.
Why?, you ask. It offers total control over the ingredient list as well as the quantity of each; it’s more nutritious; everything is fresh and it doesn’t take much time either. Also, it’s way cheaper, makes 2-3 bowls at the price of 1 chipotle bowl. Needless to say, it’s very tasty.
So, don your chef hats, get creative, and save some cash.

Chicken Breast – 200 g / 1 piece
Quinoa – 1 serving (swap for brown or white rice)
Avocado – ½ Sweet corn – ½ cup
Pico de Gallo- 2 Tbsp.
Spicy Salsa- 1 Tbsp.
Beans – ½ cup
Pepper mix – ½ cup.
All the ingredients are from Trader Joe’s; it’s hard to beat them. Also, consider buying corn and pepper mix frozen instead of fresh, they are cheaper and equally nutritious.
Feel free to make your own salsa and/or Pico de Gallo – it’s pretty simple (We’ll cover that in future posts).
Season the chicken breast with salt, black pepper, garlic, parsley, and lime. Use a Panini maker to grill it (Lifehack!), takes about 5-8 minutes.
In the meantime, cook 1 serving of quinoa or rice in an open pan on a stove or microwave.
Thaw the corn and pepper mix, if using frozen.
Once ready throw these in a bowl along with avocado, some beans, spicy salsa, and Pico de Gallo.
You’re all set!
