Mexican Immune-Boosting Bowl

Hearty, healthy, and healing! This is one of my favorite dishes because it is packed with immune-boosting, detoxing, and anti-inflammatory ingredients that are bursting with comforting flavors! 

It is also quick to make, and I’d triple up the recipe so you can have leftovers.
