Ingredients for Burrito Bowls (Zero Point Options)

Chicken - When the weather is nice out grill your chicken breasts! I'll season my chicken breasts with fajita seasoning and cook them on the grill. The taste of grilled chicken is way better and doing it this way instead of using ground chicken actually reminds me of a real burrito bowl that you'd get at say like Chipotle or Moe's. Use cooking spray instead of oil to cook your chicken. Air Fryer Chicken Breasts

Ground Chicken - My original recipe below calls for ground chicken. I prefer these burrito bowls using grilled chicken breasts but ground chicken is just another option to do if you ever want to change it up. 99% fat-free turkey can also be used.

Black Beans - I try to eat low sodium foods so I always look for less sodium canned black beans. Same goes with canned corn.

Corn - This is a fun topping to put on burrito bowls in the Sumemetime. People with smokers can try my Easy Smoked Corn on the Cob

Green Onions - optional

Kraft Fat-Free cheese - ¼ cup of fat-free cheese is 0 points. Anything beyond that amount is more.

Plain Greek yogurt - Greek yogurt is a great substitute for sour cream and it is zero points!

Other Optional Toppings

Rice - I do not like anything cauliflower but I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE rice. Rice is awesome but if you like cauliflower rice feel free to use it. I'm not stopping you! Different types of rice will be different points. I always cook a batch of whatever I have on hand and measure out ½ cup. Then I start piling on the other ingredients.

Long grain white rice: ½ cup for 3 points

Minute Rice White, Instant Rice, Premium Long Grain: 1 cup for 5 points

Brown Instant Rice: ½ cup for 5 points

You have to try this with The Best Damn Guacamole Ever.

Easy Smoked Queso and Smoked Salsa are a fun option to add on top of the Burrito Bowls

Proteins: If you are not into zero point foods like ground chicken you can sub a lean ground beef, pork, or air fryer steak. - You will have to check the smartpoints for these on their app.

How do you meal prep Burrito Bowls?

Burrito bowls are super simple to meal prep! On a Sunday or whenever you prefer to meal prep, cook your protein and rice. Let the chicken and rice cool down and place all the ingredients minus the avocado in a glass meal prep container. They have those little 1 oz containers you can buy at the store and you can use those for the cheese, greek yogurt, and avocado.

Recipe FAQs

Can I sub cauliflower rice to make it zero points?

You sure can if you like cauliflower! I am not a fan of it so that is why I used rice. I tried cauliflower quite a few times and it's just not my thing. I'd rather save my points for real rice. 🙂
