Chipotle's Chicken Burrito Bowl with Cilantro Lime Cauliflower Rice

This Chipotle's chicken burrito bowl made with marinated chicken, sweet corn and beans is my own homemade version of a favorite – made even healthier by using cauliflower rice instead of normal rice.  Add your favorite toppings like guacamole, salsa or shredded cheese and you're set for an extra delicious meal! Naturally gluten-free.
