Need a healthy lunch or dinner for a busy school night?  Try these simple and customizable chipotle bowls!

The chicken is a great blend of spicy, sweet and smokey and the other ingredients make it a filling and colorful meal!

They make great leftovers for lunches, too!  I am huge fan of cooking once and eating twice or three times!
