DIY Chie-potle Bowl Recipe

DIY Chie-potle Bowl Recipe

2020-05-25 03.36.47 1.jpg

Lately my go-to healthy meal has been DIY Chipotle bowls, which I’ve decided to call Chie-potle bowls! They’re super fun and easy to make with a great balance of fresh vegetables, protein, and carbs. 👌

Whenever I post photos of my Chie-potle bowls on IG I receive several requests for a recipe. I’ve never written out a recipe before but I decided to have some fun with it. Hope this inspires you to either create your own Chie-potle bowl or write up your own recipe for a go-to dish you’ve been cooking up these days.


  • 1 chicken breast 

  • 1 yellow onion

  • 1/2 red onion

  • 1/2 avocado

  • 1 lime

  • 1 green bell pepper

  • 1 bunch of cilantro

  • 1 can of diced tomatoes

  • 1 can of pinto (or black) beans

  • 1 frozen bag (or can) of sweet yellow corn 

  • 1 pack of spring mix

  • 1 bag of tortilla chips

  • 1 cup of cooked brown (or white) rice

  • Salt & pepper

  • Lemon pepper



1. [Chicken 🐓] Preheat a frying pan over medium heat. Grill chicken breast with salt and lemon pepper until fully cooked through, then chop up into bite sized pieces. Set aside.


2. [Rice 🍚] Take your cooked rice out of the rice cooker, let cool for 30 minutes. Then chop up a handful of cilantro and mix it up in the rice along with some fresh lime juice.
3. [Fajitas 🌱] Slice up bell pepper and onion. Cook on a frying pan over medium heat, add salt/pepper and cook until vegetables are nicely grilled. Set aside.
4. [Beans 🥫] Heat up pinto beans in small saucepan for 5 minutes. Don’t overcook or else the beans will get mushy! You won’t need to cook all the beans, so you can store up the remainder in a tupperware. 
5. [Corn salsa 🌽] Mince your red onion along with another handful of cilantro to mix up with your corn. Add some lime juice and set aside.


6. [Avocado 🥑] Take half of your avocado and cut it up into thin slices or big chunks, whichever way you prefer. If you’re an overachiever you can also make guac with the leftover ingredients.
7. [Bowl it up 🥣] Now that you have all your ingredients cooked up, it’s time to put it all together. Start with a bed of fresh spring mix as a base layer. Then add the protein, beans, rice, tomatoes, corn salsa, fajitas, and avocado. You can also squeeze some fresh lime juice on top for a nice little kick of sour.

And that’s it! Super simple, super healthy, and most importantly super delicious. 🙌

You can eat the bowl with a side of chips and salsa for some added crunch. Lately I’ve been really into combining Casa Sanchez chips (which you can find at most grocery stores in San Francisco) with some Papalote House Salsa.

P.S. here are a few behind-the-scenes shots of the Chie-potle bag I made for this recipe.
