Remember this recipe I found last week? I completely forgot to put everything in the slow cooker and just used the stove method. It wasn’t that great because I didn’t add enough flavor, but it can be improved if I had added more items. Maybe the slow cooker method would be better.
My man doesn’t like black beans, or beans of any kind, but I think it would have given it more flavor and substance. Which, brings me to a question I ask all the time, “How in the heck do you add more flavor?” I need help.
Here’s my simple version. Time from start to finish was ~20 minutes. A record in this place because usually I get distracted by other things to do in the kitchen, like organize our bazillion reusable water bottles.
SIMPLE TACO BOWLS
1 lb ground chicken
1/2 cup pico de gallo (we had this leftover)
1/4 cup shredded cheese
1/4 cup shredded lettuce
1 cup brown rice (used instant because it was getting late)
1/2 pkg low sodium taco seasoning (leftover from this recipe)
- Cook rice according to package directions. Mine was too watery…because I didn’t follow directions.
- Brown chicken and add seasoning (here’s where I’d also add beans or other veggies)
- In a bowl, add some brown rice, ground chicken, and top with lettuce, pico de gallo and shredded cheese.
We also had these Pumpkin Spice Cookies for dessert!
