Healthy Chipotle!

Who loves Chipotle?? :)
I Do!!
Here's my healthier version:
-Whole Grain Brown Rice
-Black Beans
-Half a lime

 -Start cooking your rice first, since it can take about 45 min depending on the amount you're making.

-Cut your fresh cilantro, and squeeze your lime!

 -I used canned beans, but bagged beans are an optio  
*I used 3 cans, rinsed and drained each (Rinsing your canned foods, removes about 41% of the Sodium!!)
Since the juice was drained, add a little water for heating
(Try using frozen corn over canned!)
*Add your lime juice and cilantro to the rice-to make it chipotle style*

Additional toppings:
*Hot Sauce
*Tortilla Shell
*Green Peppers in the corn (chipotle style)
*Jalapeno Peppers
*Guacamole-Recipe coming soon :)

Making your chipotle at home:
-Reduces sodium intake
-Reduces portion sizes
-Is Fun
-Leaves Left Overs! :)
