Try My Go To Protein Burrito Salad Bowl

This burrito salad bowl has been one of my weekly staples. It is high in protein, filled with vegetables, fiber, and probiotics to keep you gut healthy and happy! It is also super easy, quick to assemble, and SO delicious!

As a personal trainer and nutrition coach, I have clients scheduling at different times throughout the day. Sometimes I only have 20 minutes in between clients, and I need something that I can put together quickly for lunch.

I also like to create meals that taste great too, and this burrito salad bowl definitely passes the test!

In order to assemble this quickly, what I like to do is pre-prep my protein, have cooked rice, and chop up my veggies ahead of time to keep in my refrigerator. This way I can grab everything out, heat up my protein & rice in the microwave, toss the veggies into my bowl, and then it is ready in less than 10 minutes!

Protein Burrito Salad Bowl


  • 3-4oz cooked lean ground chicken or other lean protein source (spiced with salt, pepper, garlic, cayenne pepper, other spices of your choice)

  • 1/4 Cup rice (Jasmine, brown, wild, quinoa)

  • 2 Cups spinach or mixed greens

  • 1/4 Cup beans (or corn)

  • 1/4 Avocado

  • 1/2 chopped medium tomato

  • 2 Tablespoons Unsweetened Greek Yogurt

  • 2 Tablespoons enchilada sauce (or to taste)

  • Hot sauce (optional)

  • Salsa (optional)


  1. If you did not pre-prep your protein or rice, prep those first.

  2. Chop veggies and avocado if not already done.

  3. Grab a large bowl and place spinach/mixed greens at the base.

  4. Add in your beans (or corn), tomato, avocado, ground chicken (or other protein choice), and rice. Top with unsweetened greek yogurt and enchilada sauce.

  5. Add in some hot sauce or salsa if you would like also. Voila! Your burrito salad bowl is now ready to enjoy!

This burrito salad bowl is very versatile, which is one of the reasons I love it so much. If you give it a try, comment below and let me know what you think!
