|Southwest Chicken Bowl|
I don't know what it is about bowls but I have a thing for them. I like them. All sizes - itty bitty, small, medium, and big. I have quite a collection. Just this morning as I was unloading the dishwasher and commented that I wished I had more storage space, husband suggested maybe we get rid of some bowls. Guess my affection for bowls is obvious.
I like to serve a meal in a bowl, especially dinner. There are many dishes that are suitable for serving in a bowl other than soup and salad. I begin with a starch base such as pasta or rice, add a protein, vegetables, a sauce and possibly a few condiments for topping. Last night I served Southwest Chicken in a bowl. A base of yellow rice, southwest spiced chicken with pinto beans and corn and then your favorite toppings - shredded cheddar, sour cream and chopped green onions for me. I was hoping to have leftovers for today's lunch but alas, that did not happen. It was that good!
Other favorite meals in a bowl at our house include:
Peanut Butter Chicken
Burrito Bowls - our family's version of beans and rice with toppings (we've been calling it this for years because the girls would eat it without a fuss when they were little; sounded like what they ordered at Chipotle)
Pork and Asparagus Rice Bowls
Spanish Rice - I add a bit of taco meat
Beef & Broccoli
The options are endless. Do you have a favorite dinner in a bowl that you serve at your house?
