I enjoy the "make your own" combos that they offer there, allowing you to add your own ingredients and leave off what you don't enjoy...but what's better than totally customizing your meal? Making that meal at home for a fraction of the cost AND knowing exactly how you make each ingredient! The below recipes are just layered into a bowl, however you'd like them. You could certainly add salsa, pico de gallo, guacamole, beef, different beans, etc...
I layered the rice, beans, chicken, 2% shredded cheddar cheese, fresh avocado, low-fat sour cream and more cilantro.

Cilantro Lime Rice
- 1 pkg. instant boil-in-bag rice
- Juice of 1 lime
- 1/3 cup of chopped fresh cilantro
- 1 tbs. butter
Add cilantro, lime juice & butter.
Mix well, keep warm.
Chili Lime Chicken
- Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts (I used 1 pkg. chicken tenderloins)
- Juice of 3 Limes
- 2 tbs. chili powder
- 1 tbs. olive oil
- 1/2 tbs. garlic powder.
Grill/cook thoroughly then chop into bite-sized pieces."Not-Refried" Black Beans
- 1 can of black beans
- 1/2 tsp. cumin
- 1/2 tsp. black pepper
- 1/2 tsp. chili powder
Reserve half of the beans liquid then pour the remaining liquid & beans into the skillet.
Add spices & stir until combine.
Heat through for about 8-10 minutes, simmering to concentrate the liquid.
Using a masher, break up/mash the beans together until your desired consistency is reached. Stir & let heat through.
If too thick (or when reheating), add a bit of the reserved bean liquid to rehydrate.
Serve & enjoy!
