    This looks pretty good! I’m thinking I could make this if I have leftover rice and chicken, which usually happens. Perfect for when i don’t feel like cooking much because it’s hot outside! lol 🙂 Pinned, stumbled and shared on G+

    I love Chipotle as much as the next girl, but there are none near me and it can get expensive – fast! I love these at home versions of burrito bowls. It’s so comforting and flavorful but also healthy if you load it up with veggies!

    This looks like the perfect summer dish. Especially since you can use the crockpot! My favorite. I love Mexican food and then we can always have the left-overs for lunch. Love it even more!
