For the lady watching her figure... like me!

Most awesome thing ever... I have been trying to come up with a yummy satisfying afternoon snack that will not only satisfy me but fuel my post work workout! Here it is...

Burrito Cups!



I love mexican food and as you read about my love of burrito bowls (which are low cal)... I thought "hey! why not take that yummy concept and make it smaller, if you can have a bowl and a cup of soup... why not a burrito cup..." 

So here is my recipe!

Burrito Cups:
1 ounce of Megan's Taco Chicken (recipe to follow)
1/4 cup of rice
1/4 cup fat free refried, pinto, or black beans
1 tbsp shredded chedder cheese
1 tbsp fat free sour cream
1/8 of a small avocado
1 tbsp of chunky salsa or pico de gayo
Super cute 6 ounce party cups! 

Layer rice, beans, chicken and cheese. Microwave for about a minute. then add the sour cream, avocado, and salsa. BOOM... delish and keeps you totally satisfied! 

The calorie content- 165!! Superb. 

And here is my recipe for taco chicken

Megan's Taco Chicken:
1 fully cooked rotissery chicken (deboned, skinned, and chopped up- a pre-cooked chicken from any grocery store is fine!)
1 packet of taco seasoning
2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup water

On high add all ingredients and stir until spice, water and olive oil is evenly distributed. Cook until all water is evaporated. Serve and enjoy! 

Also can be made in advance and brought to work! I am keeping a few in the fridge at the shop for when I get hungry.  Also super fun to put them in cute cups! Just bring a separate container for all the cold ingredients and add them post microwave...



I knew something awesome would come of today... :)

Oh stop! You're as cute as they come! That does look mighty tasty! I can eat avocados {which I do} while relaxing on the couch. My husband thinks its disgusting but I figure more for me :]

oh my holy goodness that looks/sounds fantastic...i would probably end up using some Greek yogurt instead of sour cream since I like to lay that on thick :S

yeah! it would have the same effect. I use Tillamook fat free sour cream and its 15 calories for 2 tablespoons. However I think greek yogurt is creamier!
