I have been obsessed with the Chicken Cantina Bowl from Taco Bell. The ingredients are easy enough so I decided to make my own version!
Here are the ingredients I used-enough for 4 salads:
2 cups rice
1 can black beans drained but not rinsed
1 bag of lettuce
Spice - chipotle or another Mexican blend
2 chicken breast, grilled and sliced
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 small can corn, drained
1/2 cup pico
Salsa ranch dressing
Options: Sour cream and Guacamole
To begin, make the rice and let it cool completely. Sprinkle the chipotle rub on the chicken. If you do not have a blended spice like this you can make your own: salt, pepper, garlic salt, onion powder, chili powder, cumin. Cook the chicken breast and let it rest while you assemble the salad.
This dish is very versatile. You can grill a steak and make a steak bowl. You can make this with taco meat. You can add crumbled taco chips for a little crunch. Add the ingredients that you like - the possibilities are endless!
