1. Wash hands with soap and water.

2. Rinse fresh produce.

3. Rinse quinoa in a fine-mesh strainer under cool running water. Add quinoa and vegetable broth to a medium pot and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer 12 to 15 minutes until liquid is absorbed.

4. In a medium skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add bell peppers, red onion, chili powder and paprika and cook for about 5 minutes until onions become translucent and peppers are tender, stirring occasionally.

5. To build each burrito bowl, ladle quinoa in a bowl and top with black beans, sautéed pepper-onion mixture and chicken. Garnish with avocado slices, salsa and yogurt as desired.
