If you commit to skipping the fast food lunch for a week, I guarantee you’ll see a few extra dollars in your pocket.  Here’s one of my go-to recipes, a shrimp (or chicken/beef/tofu) chipotle bowl, for those who want to ball-on-a-budget AND eat well at the same time!

And just to show you how EASY (and affordable) this recipe is, I partnered up with Homewood Suites by Hilton to make this in one of the suites!  It’s a simple, flavor packed recipe you can make while away from the comfort of your own kitchen with just a few cost-friendly ingredients.

And remember – customization is KEY to win in your diet.  For instance, you can swap brown rice with cauliflower rice and black beans for thin shredded cabbage for a hearty, yet lower carb option.  Make the food work for you (and your budget)!

15 Minute Shrimp Chipotle Bowl Meal Prep

Ingredients

shrimp chipotle bowlIngredients 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
Steps
  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.
  2. Rub the shrimp with taco/fajita seasoning.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  6. Assemble the bowl for your meal prep containers by evenly dividing up the ingredients into the containers!
