Burrito Bowls

So this one is super simple, and WAY delicious. Honestly it's more of an idea than an actual recipe so go forth and burrito bowl. I LOVE Chipotle, but it's a solid 20 minutes from my house and sometimes I don't just have $9 I'd like to spend. If it lasted me a few meals it would be worth it, but I usually end up eating the whole stinkin' thing. At Chipotle I eat my bowl with their delicious chips, I wasn't feeling very chippy-dippy today so I just ate it as it... but I'd recommend pulling out some tortilla chips if you try it.

4 ears of corn
1/2 red onion, minced
2 limes, juiced
bunch of cilantro
kosher salt
tortilla chips
rice, cooked to your liking
chicken, I used a rotisserie I got on sale ($3.45 and I got 6 cups of meat!)
sour cream
    **Ok now, some people like guacamole like the dip you put your chips in, other people consider it smashed avocado, I personally usually just mix some smashed avocado with some pico de gallo or other salsa. My sister prefers just to cube up some avocado and toss it in.. that's awesome too!

So here's what I did. I cut the corn off the cob and diced the onion. I tossed it with the lime, some minced cilantro and some kosher salt. I let that start to meld together. Then I started cooking some brown minute rice, you can make whatever rice you'd like and cook it will a little cilantro and lime if you want it a bit more authentic but brown minute rice was plenty delicious for me! Layer rice, then chicken. Place plenty of corn salsa, a dollop of sour cream and a dollop of guac. Now you either dip your chips or dig in with a fork. (:
