Chef’s Plate Review – Spicy Black Bean Burrito Bowls

Chef’s Plate is a subscription service that delivers chef-designed recipes and fresh ingredients each week. There is no subscription or membership fee to join. Their recipes begin at $10.95 per plate for the 2-Person Plan and $9.75 per plate for the Family Plan. A Year of Boxes pays for this subscription.

I’m kind of embarrassed to admit this, but……I get so darn excited when I login to my Chef’s Plate account and see that new recipes have been released. I usually check my account Sunday afternoon and pick out my recipes for the following weeks. It’s something I look forward to each week. I also get REALLY excited to test out the new recipes, like we are talking E.X.C.I.T.E.D! My kitchen game is on point thanks to Chef’s Plate. I honestly couldn’t be happier with a subscription box than I am with this one.

I went over all the subscription details in my last post so today we are going to get straight into the fun part……this week’s recipe:
