Mexican Lunch Bowl

Mexican Lunch Bowl

I love lunch bowls as a way to break free from sandwiches.  They are so easy to throw together and can be a mix of leftovers from the night before!  This one was inspired by my lunch two weeks ago with my friend at little a restaurant called Karma Cafe...a mexican twist to a Buddha Bowl.  They are vegetarian at the restaurant so I changed the tofu to add chicken in.  Either is a great add-in.

  • 1 cup Quinoa
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 (14-ounce) can back beans, rinsed and drained
