Optional toppings:


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the onions and peppers and saute until they soften, about 4-5 minutes. 
  2. Then, add the chicken and cook for about 8 minutes, until it’s totally cooked through. 
  3. Add the chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Cook for 2 additional minutes, stirring frequently, to coat the chicken and veggies. Remove the skillet from the heat, and squeeze on the lime juice. 
  4. To build the burrito bowls, add about 1/2 cup of rice and 1 cup of lettuce to a bowl for each person*. Add in some of the fajita mixture and then top with desired toppings. Serve!
