Sweet Potato Rice and Chorizo Bowls were on tonight’s menu and they did not disappoint at all!

For the kids I made regular rice and called it the home version of Chipotle, so they were thrilled.

I made the Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice that you microwave for 90 seconds, so really no extra work.

Sweet Potato Rice is quite possibly my newest food obsession.

And it’s not a bad obsession to have. It has much more flavor than regular rice, fewer calories, and less carbs.

Yes, yes cauliflower rice has even less calories and carbs, but sometimes us mid forty year old’s need to mix up our vegetable rice options 😉

See, we aren’t boring and enjoy mixing things up a bit!

How to make Sweet Potato Rice and Chorizo Bowls

For the sweet potato rice cut some sweet potatoes into chunks, skin removed.

Then pulse a few times in the food processor until they are a rice like consistency.

Next the sweet potato rice goes into a large skillet over medium heat with some olive oil.

Season with chili powder, garlic powder, cumin, kosher salt, and pepper.

This will cook in the skillet for about 8 minutes.

Add some chopped cilantro and fresh squeezed lime juice at the end.

Divide the “rice” between four bowls or containers (if meal prepping).

Then in the same skillet add a pound of ground chorizo.

Cook the chorizo for about 5 to 8 minutes and break it apart as it cooks.

Chorizo is pretty awesome because it’s already perfectly seasoned.

Now all that’s left to do is make the Sweet Potato Rice Chorizo Bowls to your liking.

Putting your own spin on toppings makes this dish even more fun.

I set out cheese, sour cream, salsa, guacamole, hot sauce, and a few other taco-like fixings and everyone made their own bowl.

We even made it more of a fiesta and had some tortilla chips along with salsa and guacamole.

So yummy and a fun dinner for sure!

It made this rainy Monday seem less Monday-ish 🙂
