15 Minute Shrimp Chipotle Bowl Meal Prep

Prep: 5 min
Cook: 10 min
Total: 15 min

Ingredients for 3 servings/meals

  •  Shrimp
    • 1 1/4 lb raw jumbo shrimp
      • Substitutes: chicken, tofu, beef
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons taco or fajita seasoning packet
  • 1 small white onion, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped (or just buy 2 green bell peppers since they are cheaper)
  • juice from 1 lime
  • 3/4 cup frozen corn, thawed
  • 15oz can black beans, no salt added
  • 8oz instant brown rice (I used Basmati brown rice)
    • Low-Carb Substitute: cauliflower rice
  • Garnish (optional)
    • fresh mashed avocado
    • chopped cilantro
    • lime wedge


Step 1

Heat up brown rice in the microwave according to the package instructions.  Then emptyblack beans into a microwaveable safe bowl and warm those too.

Step 2

Rub the shrimp with taco/fajita seasoning.

Step 3

Set a nonstick skillet on medium-high heat.  Once hot, spray with olive oil.  Toss in the fresh bell peppers and onions and sear for 3 to 5 minutes.  As it cooks, squeeze in fresh lime to help caramelize (and soften) the veggies.  Once the onion is translucent and the edges are seared, remove from the skillet.

Step 4

Increase the heat of the skillet to high, then add the frozen corn.  Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, enough to thaw and sear the outside of the corn, then set aside.

Step 5

Reduce the heat of the skillet to medium, and if needed, spray with a little more olive oil, then toss in the shrimp.  Cook for 3 to 5 minutes until the shrimp is white and plump with seared edges.

Step 6

Assemble the bowl for your meal prep containers by evenly dividing up the ingredients into the containers!
