  • Top with salsa and Lime-Avocado Sauce.

This recipe is for 2 burrito bowls.
To save time, use leftover chicken or pick up a rotisserie chicken at the store.
You can also use store-bought guacamole or salsa, but be sure to check the labels for added sugar and sodium.
To prep your ingredients in advance, simply make the chicken, lime-avocado sauce, and homemade salsa ahead of time. Store the chicken in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days and the sauces for up to a week.
