Pollo Asada Rice Bowl

A while back I shared my first couple meals I had prepared from a Wildtree freezer Meals workshop I attended last fall. You can find the Ranch Chicken Chili HERE and the Apple Balsamic Pork Roast HERE.  And I am excited to share another. We made 10 freezer meals total and ate them rather quickly. I was sure that there would be at least a couple that I didn't love, but I soon found out that would not be the case. We loved every single one of the freezer meals we made.

I wasn't sure how this Pollo Asada Rice bowl would go over in my house because Travis does not like rice!

This was another hit with my family! We all loved it and I have made it twice since I originally made it at the freezer meal workshop!
