Who loves a burrito bowl! Mexican food has always been a favourite of mine but the AIP diet does not allow those hot chilli spices or rice. This AIP friendly burrito bowl is delicious, it hits those fresh flavours, and satisfies those Mexican food cravings.

BBQing chicken is quick and adds that smoky flavour and crunch. For this recipe I marinate the chicken before BBQing, and then shred it. You can also do this ahead of time.
