My Chipotle Bowl

Tonight, I only wanted one thing…..Chipotle! 

But since the nearest Chipotle is across the river and making the trip during rush hour on a Friday turns into a 3 hour tour, I decided to spare myself the chaos and simply make my own for dinner.   
So easy and quite possible just as good. (Okay, it was close!) 

My "Chipotle" Veggie Burrito Bowl
  • 1/2 Chopped Red Pepper
  • 1/2 Chopped Yellow Pepper
  • 1/2 Chopped Zucchini
  • 1/2 Cup of Black Beans
  • 1 TBL canned Pumpkin
  • 2 TBL TJ's Enchilada Sauce
  • Salt, Pepper, Garlic, Chili Powder, Lime Juice
Sauté the pepper and zucchini in a hot skillet.  Add the garlic, black beans.  After a few minutes, add the pumpkin, sauce and the seasonings. Cook everything for 10 minutes on low until all of the flavors combine. 

Serve on top of spinach or greens and add generous amounts of guac, salsa, and plain greek yogurt.  Don't forget the hot sauce and chips for scooping! 

Perfect fix for my Chipotle craving! 



  1. YUM! Looks fantastic. I know I always say this, but I SO wish Chipotle would just open down here. Your bowl looks awesome. I love that you added pumpkin- YUM!

  2. Such a great replica! I love my Chipotle too, but I don't know if I could drive that far for a fix, either! Luckily for me, there's a million here in Manhattan! Have a great weekend :)

  3. That looks delish! Pumpkin + black beans = a match made in heaven! Chipotle's guac is the bomb, but you're right, it's pretty easy to replicate their meals yourself.

  4. i passed by a chipotle today and thought the same thing. i had leftovers at home, though...

  5. Yum, yum, yum! Looks amazing!! I am seriously in love with Guac right now!!

  6. that looks sooo good!! I can't wait to come to the states to try Chipolte!

  7. Hey sweetie pie! It's been way too long since I've caught up on your blog--missed you! I just bought some coconut oil the other day, too. I haven't tried it yet, but I am excited! I have been craving Mexican food like whoa recently. I don't know what my deal is! That mock up bowl looks amazing though. And I agree with Susan--black beans and pumpkin=delish! Hope you're having a wonderful weekend my dear! xoxo

  8. I need to try to make my own Chipotle bowl. I've seen a bunch on different blogs but yours is the only one that's actually YOURS. I like that you added different things like pumpkin and zucchini. I have all the fixings to make this meal, maybe I'll try it tomorrow :)
