Easy burrito bowls

You know those burrito bowls they make at Chipotle? Sooo good right? But kind of expensive, and I don't have one in my town. So here's a recipe I came up with to try to replicate the taste and I think it came pretty close. Also I bought pre-packaged already cooked meat, it speeds up the process that much more but feel free to cook your own meat as well.

1 bag tyson grilled and ready chicken strips, or steak strips
1 cup white rice
1 lime
bunch of cilantro
1 green bell pepper
1 red bell pepper
1 onion 
leaf lettuce
olive oil
sour cream
queso fresca

Pour 1 cup of rice into pan, add 2 cups of water
Cover pan, and bring to a boil
Once boiling, turn burner on low and let rice sit for about 10 minutes
While rice is cooking chop peppers and onions
Rice is done when all the water is soaked up, and fluffy
Spoon rice into bowl, add 1 1/2 tsp salt, juice of 1 lime, and a handful of cilantro

Add 1 tbsp olive oil to pan, and saute peppers and onions until soft and onions turn golden. 
These are basically the only things you need to cook, after this you just assemble your burrito bowl with the cilantro lime rice, and then any ingredients you want! I listed the ones I usually use in the ingredients. See? Pretty easy right? And an easy way to satisfy your craving. Enjoy!
