Mason Jar Chicken Burrito Bowl

This homemade burrito bowl is packed with protein, whole grains, and nutrient-dense veggies, and will sustain you from lunch until the end of the afternoon. Whisking up the dressing at the bottom of the jar ensures the lettuce at the top stays fresh and crisp, but that the veggies at the bottom are infused with spice and flavor. If you’re planning on making the jar a few days ahead, hold off on adding the avocado (which browns easily once cut) until the morning of. When you’re ready to eat, pour into a bowl and top with crumbled tortilla chips.
