How to assemble your meal prep bowls

Here are some ideas to spice things up

  • Rice variations: Try Mexican rice, lemon rice, or cilantro lime rice for a change of pace.
  • Fresh toppings: Chopped cilantro, a squeeze of lime juice, and sliced avocado are all delicious options.
  • Get your tortilla fix: Warm up some homemade flour tortillas on the side for a fajita feel.

So ditch the dinner stress and give these Chicken Fajita Meal Prep Bowls a try! They’re a healthy, flavorful, and convenient way to stay on track with your meals all week long.
