Top a flavorful base with plenty of protein and drizzle with a savory sauce. Boom! You have a meal that will keep you going with a smile on your face. By swapping the typical starchy rice for a lime-infused cauliflower rice, we’ve made this recipe into a flavor-packed, carb-light easy option for any night of the week.</p> <p>It seems like a lot of steps, but this recipe really comes together in 10 minutes and makes a great meal-prep option for busy schedules. Simply prepare and store each component individually, then combine when you’re ready to eat.</p> <p><strong>Pro Tip:</strong> If you are looking for a way to bring down the heat of this recipe, simply swap the chipotle powder for smoked paprika. This will still give you that delicious smokey flavor, but dial the heat back. </p> </section> <hr class="divider-15 divider-thick mx-auto"> <section id="section1" class="recipe"> <h2 itemprop="name" align="center">Chipotle Beef Bowls</h2> <div class="prep"> <span> <meta itemprop="prepTime" content="PT10M">Prep Time: 10 minutes</span> <span> <meta itemprop="cookTime" content="PT20M">Cooking Time: 20 minutes</span> <span> <meta itemprop="recipeYield">Serves: 4 </span> </div> <h3 id="section2">Ingredients:</h3> <b>For the sauce:</b> <ul class="ingredients no-bullet"> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">1 chipotle pepper, canned in adobo (we recommend La Costeña)</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">1 teaspoon chipotle powder </li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">½ teaspoon adobo sauce</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">½ teaspoon cumin</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">3 cloves garlic</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">½ cup sour cream</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">1 teaspoon lime juice</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">½ teaspoon salt</li> </ul> <b>For the bowls:</b> <ul class="ingredients no-bullet"> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">8 ounces grass-fed ground beef</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">8 ounces portobello or cremini mushrooms, chopped fine</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">1 large head cauliflower, riced and steamed (about 6-8 cups or 2 12-ounce bags of frozen cauliflower rice, steamed)</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">½ teaspoon salt</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">2 limes, juiced, divided</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">1 cup fresh cilantro, chopped, divided</li> </ul> <b>For the guacamole:</b> <ul class="ingredients no-bullet"> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">2 avocados, halved, pitted, and peeled</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">¼ cup red onion, minced</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">½ teaspoon salt</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">½ teaspoon cumin</li> </ul> <hr class="divider-50 divider-medium"> <h3 id="section3">Instructions:</h3> <ol itemprop="recipeInstructions"> <b>Make the sauce:</b> <li>In a blender or mini food processor, blend together all sauce ingredients until smooth and well-incorporated.</li> <b>Make the bowls:</b> <li>Heat a large skillet over medium heat.
