Chicken Fajita Salad

This salad is one I created when I started a low-carb diet a year ago. You can cut down the carbs by lowering the amound of onions and peppers you use, or by eliminating the sour cream and amping up the salsa.

Anyway, I always crave fajitas, and this salad gives all the flavor without the calories or carbs you get in a tortilla.

Now that I'm not really counting carbs anymore I still love this salad because the flavor is so good, and it really doesn't take too much time to make. It's easy to double or triple when I have my husband or kids around, too, because it all cooks in the same skillet... and you can customize the amounts of cheese, salsa, etc., to each person's taste right in their bowl.

Easy to make, fully customizable, fairly small mess... sounds good to me.Submitted by RACHELJUDT

Burrito Bowl (Chipotle Style)

Love Chipotle food? I modeled this recipe off my favorite burrito bowl from Chipotle (Less rice, more bean, all four salsas and guac.) The recipe sounds complex because there are lots of parts, but it is pretty easy to throw together in 20 minutes. Great for larger groups, too. Submitted by GOPHERHAWK1
