In honor of What Different Can Do, we’re highlighting a recipe that is especially good for kids on the spectrum because it’s allergen free and nutrient dense, loaded with protein, fiber, and good fats!

  1. Combine all pollo asada ingredients with the chicken and marinate for at least 4 hours, or overnight.
    When ready to cook, the recipe is best grilled, but it is also great pan fried, sauteed, or roasted
    in the oven. Cook, dice and set aside for when ready to assemble your burrito bowls.
  2. For the dairy free ranch, combine all ingredients in a food processor, blender, or you can even
    use an immersion blender.
  3. When all the burrito bowl ingredients are cooked and prepped, you’re ready to assemble! The
    beautiful thing is that everyone can build their bowl the way they want!
