Southwestern Bowl Meal Prep Instructions:

This recipe is perfect for meal prep as the ingredients can be easily stored and assembled throughout the week. Here’s how to make it:

Ingredients (per bowl):

4 oz cooked, shredded rotisserie chicken
1/2 cup fire-roasted corn
1/4 cup black beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup diced tomatoes with green chiles
1/3 cup reduced-fat shredded cheese
3 tablespoons salsa
1 tablespoon light ranch dressing


Prepare the bowls: If prepping multiple bowls, gather your containers beforehand.
Cook the chicken (optional): If your rotisserie chicken isn’t already shredded, shred it with two forks or using your fingers. You can also use other cooked protein options like grilled chicken breast or ground turkey.
Assemble the bowls:
Divide the cooked chicken, fire-roasted corn, black beans, and diced tomatoes with green chiles evenly between your containers.
Top with the reduced-fat shredded cheese.
Do not add the salsa and ranch dressing until ready to eat. This will help keep the other ingredients fresh throughout the week.
Seal the containers and refrigerate for up to 4 days.
Assembly and Serving:

When ready to eat, take out a container and microwave it for 1-2 minutes, or until heated through (depending on your microwave wattage).
Add the salsa and ranch dressing to your liking and toss everything together.

Variations: Feel free to customize your bowl with other ingredients you like. Some options include chopped avocado, chopped bell peppers, cilantro, chopped red onion, or a dollop of Greek yogurt.
Grains: For a more filling option, add a base layer of cooked brown rice, quinoa, or chopped romaine lettuce.
Protein boost: If you want to increase the protein content, add additional cooked chicken or another protein source like crumbled tofu.
