Barbacoa Bowls

We are always looking for different ways to incorporate our favorite meat recipes into new and unique meals. Barbacoa Bowls are a new favorite in our house, as they are absolutely delicious and can be customized to the taste of each individual. The flavor of the barbacoa beef goes great with the guacamole, which adds moisture to the mix along with the barbacoa chipotle sauce from the slow cooker. If you are doing Keto or watching your carbs, you can always leave out the rice. The rice and romaine have a great texture when incorporated, which probably sounds pretty odd, but you should give it a try (you’d be surprised how good it actually is!). These bowls are easy to throw together, as you can cook the meat in the slow cooker during the day and prepare the fresh ingredients and rice just before serving. From the Monster Foodies to you—love what you eat and enjoy!
