How to Make Mexican Burrito Bowl

Hi My dearest friends,

First of all let me ask you, if you tried the my Kulfi recipe or my quick oats cookie recipe, do try and comment down below if haven’t done so.

Today, I am back on my blog quoting down a very easy recipe which can make you super delighted 🙂 So, this time I would take a break from my Indian genre and would explain on how to make the most famed Mexican delicacy – Burrito Bowl. Believe it or not, I simply love the burrito Bowl. The best part of this dish is that you can enjoy all the flavors of each item distinctly and you can also customize the bowl as per your wish.

 A burrito bowl is a deconstructed burrito without the tortilla or chips. It is all of your favorite burrito filling ingredients – protein, cheese, corn, black beans, tomatoes, salsa, sour cream, guacamole etc. served over a bowl of rice. You can also add roasted chicken/beef/or any other meat of your choice as a topping which brings additional taste to the dish.

Though this dish has multiple components involved, it is actually very easy and simple to prepare it. Some people consider this dish as “not so healthy” because of the high content of the calorie, but as I mentioned before it is totally upto you on how to customize this dish and make it as per your choice. I usually like adding in all the veggies as they contain lots of fiber and nutrients, and also like using Brown rice as the base as it is a good antioxidant. You can even replace the brown rice with other alternatives like cauliflower rice or quinoa.

So, here goes the recipe :
