Chicken and Black Bean Burrito Bowl

Make your own Mexican-inspired chicken burrito bowl with cilantro-lime rice and all the trimmings. This recipe uses black beans, but you can substitute pinto beans if you prefer. With fresh salsa, a squeeze of lime, and creamy Greek yogurt on top of crisp romaine lettuce, no other dressing is needed.
