Fiesta Bowls


The Fiesta Bowls recipe was featured in my March newsletter and was a huge hit! I have received a lot of great feedback on it and couldn’t wait to share the recipe with you. To make it fun, set up all of the ingredients out (buffet-style) and let everyone in your family build their own bowls! It’s so fun for each person to be creative and craft their “perfect” bowl. Enjoy!

    For Vegetarians, you can use tofu in place of the chicken and use vegetable stock in place of the chicken broth. Yummy!
