Vegan copycat Chipotle burrito bowl (weight watchers-friendly)

To say that we love Chipotle burrito bowls would be an understatement. Me and Chipotle were practically BFFs in my pre-vegan days. No joke. When I discovered a weight watchers recipe for the cilantro lime rice, I knew I was soooo close to having Chipotle copycat perfection. Pair with some organic black beans and some homemade pico de gallo-perfecto!

We improvised our pico de gallo recipe based on the ingredients we had on hand:

Hibbard Pico De Gallo
  • 3 large tomatoes, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1/2 tablespoon lime juice
  • pinch of salt
This is a very inexpensive meal to make and doesn't require a drive in the car to the nearest Chipotle.

To serve: Use 1/2 cup of cilantro lime rice, 1/2 cup black beans and 1/2 cup pico de gallo. This serving would be 6.5 points.
