What is your lunch bag?

One of my favorite things to make for lunch is "Burritos-less Burritos" or those of you familiar with BoLoCo Burritos Bowls, they include everything you would have in a burrito just minus the tortilla.

Here is a little run down on how I get this to be a yummy hot mess:

"Kimbarrito's Burritos-Less Burritos"

- 3 boneless skinless chicken breast
- 2 packages Success Boil in a Bag rice (brown rice)
- 1 jar medium salsa
- 1 can black beans
- 1 can red kidney beans
- 1 can pinto beans
- reduced fat shredded cheese (I use cheddar)
- low-fat sour cream

First I boil the chicken and rice, I put the chicken on first as it takes longer to cook thoroughly and I put both bags of rice in boiling water and those it says 10 min I find it takes about 12-13 min. After the chicken is done I cut it into random size cubes, salt and pepper after all is cut up and by this time the rice is finished, drain the rice and pour one bag into a casserole dish from then I start to add all 3 beans, salsa, sour cream, cheese and chicken, there is no laying it is more mixed together. After everything is mixed together I top with a little extra cheese for luck!

Sorry it is not the best picture, but believe me it is good good good! I dished out servings into lunch size tupperware containers and have been enjoying all week long! I love it is full of fiber, protein and flavor!

Also I had a little leftover and ended up using it as filling to make a quesadilla for a quick yummy dinner!

So there you have it from the Kimba Kitchen Kookbook, not sure it's a crowd pleaser but it's a house pleaser at chez Kimba!

Cheese and sour cream make any meal! And the oh so cute Nina at According to Nina suggested pairing this dish with a yummy margarita! I would love to cook up this dish and host you all with "Nina Margs" on the side!
