This easy-to-make and meal-prep burrito bowl is even better than takeout! You'll never miss the carbs in this protein-packed, super-flavorful meal that replaces the cilantro-lime rice with cauliflower rice. We love this with chicken but it would be just as delicious with shrimp.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Pulse cauliflower in a food processor until chopped into rice-size pieces. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the cauliflower and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the cauliflower is softened, about 5 minutes. Cover and keep warm.

  • Position a rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler to high. Coat a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.

  • Season chicken with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Place on the prepared baking sheet and broil for 9 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, combine the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, chipotles, garlic powder and cumin in a small bowl.

  • Turn the chicken over, brush with the chipotle glaze and continue broiling until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part registers 165 degrees F, 8 to 10 minutes more. Transfer to a clean cutting board and chop into bite-size pieces.

  • Assemble each bowl with 1/2 cup each cauliflower rice, chicken and lettuce, 1/4 cup beans, 1/4 avocado and 1 tablespoon each pico de gallo (or salsa) and cheese. Serve with a lime wedge.
