Chicken & Quinoa Chipotle Jars

This one is SO delicious!! This recipe is nutritious, simple, and so filling! 

- 1/2 c black beans

- 1 c quinoa
- 1 sweet potato 
- 2 tbsp lime juice
- 1/4 c cilantro
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 rotisserie chicken OR 2 chicken breasts, cooked
- Taco Seasoning
- Chipotle Seasoning


1. Cook 1/2c raw black beans per package until done. If you used canned black beans, make sure you get low/no sodium! 
2. Add 1c quinoa, 2c water, and season to taste with taco seasoning. Cook per package, usually simmering 20-25mins. (Note: I use Wildtree because it's low sodium, but there's many options to make your own! You'll hear me say this over and over, I do not get paid to endorse Wildtree seasoning, its just healthy and I love it! Nor do I sell the product.) 
3. In a frying pan, cook 1c diced sweet potatoes in 1 tbsp coconut oil. Season to taste. I used chipotle seasoning!
4. When quinoa is done, add 2 tbsp lime juice and 1/4c chopped cilantro. Mix up, set aside.
5. Shred rotisserie chicken, or cook and shred chicken breast. I use rotisserie chicken because I make multiple meals out of it, like chicken Caesar salads (see next post)
6. Layer in a jar! I did sweet potatoes first, then chicken, black beans, and quinoa. You could top with salsa and a spoonful of greek yogurt instead of sour cream when you're ready to enjoy!

In good health,

Healthy Chicken Burrito

In the Ferrell house, we could eat tacos and burritos EVERY single week. I'm always discovering ways to make them as healthy as possible, and I finally nailed it. 

-Ezekiel tortillas (Found in health food section in the freezer!)
-2 chicken breasts
-1/2c black beans 
-2c brown rice 
- Cheese


1. Throw chicken breasts (frozen or thawed) in crockpot.. Season with some low sodium taco seasoning and cover in salsa. (I use Wildtree taco seasoning because it's super healthy. No, I'm not paid to endorse them. I literally just love their products. Some people make their own. Others just buy low sodium kind. Do what is best for YOU!) Cook on high 4 hours.
2. Black beans- (I use raw) cook per package. They simmer for about 1.5-2h
3. Brown rice- (I use the plain kind in a bag). Throw 2c rice, & 4c water into pan and bring to boil. Season to taste, so it is like Spanish rice (I use Wildtree taco seasoning and throw in 1/4c salsa). Once boiling, let simmer for 45mins.
4. Once chicken is done, shred with a fork. Add more salsa if it needs it. Put shredded chicken. Black beans, and a pinch of cheese in tortilla. Rolls up like a burrito. Place it in a pan with a small amount of coconut oil so each side is crispy and the burrito stays together.
5. Place in Tupperware for the week. Makes 6 servings!!
