A common question that pops up in the support group I run alongside my free 30-Day PCOS Diet Challenge is, “What restaurants serve food we can eat with PCOS?”

Back in the day when eating out was something I actually got to do from time to time (pre-kid, pre-2020, etc), I used to find that Mexican-style restaurants offered the best options for finding a PCOS-friendly meal. A burrito bowl is essentially just a salad after all, and you can’t beat a triple-serving of guacamole. So this week I’m releasing one of my personal favorite recipes, Zambreros. It’s a rip-off recipe I created in honor of an Australian, Mexican fast-food chain I once frequented regularly.

PCOS Dinner Recipe Burrito Bowl

Here’s everything you’ll need to make your own PCOS-Friendly Zambreros:

  • Chicken thighs
  • Olive oil
  • Canned black beans
  • Chili powder
  • Ground cumin
  • Paprika
  • Garlic powder
  • Dried onion
  • Dried oregano
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • Salsa
  • Romaine (Cos) lettuce
  • Corn on the cob
  • Tomatoes
  • Fresh cilantro/coriander
  • Avocado
  • Limes

This simple dish is super easy to make at home and is widely popular with all the people I’ve made it for so I hope you’ll like it too.
