Ms. Bear's Kitchen: DIY burrito bowl
For today, Melissa and I are sharing a new favorite of ours: A burrito bowl. I had mentioned a couple of columns back about my "addiction" to Chipotle Burrito Bowls. The good news is I have managed to give up the chips and salsa, but I sure do like the burrito bowls! Now, here is a bit of gossip about Melissa -- she is sooooo stubborn about trying new things. I have been trying to get her to try Chipotle, literally, for years! Well, since the Qdoba Mexican Grill closed here, she finally tried Chipotle, and, you guessed it, she loved it! So, we have started making our own version of the burrito bowls at home. They are healthy, cheap and fast! Here's the recipe....remember, you can put anything you want in there! Here's how we've been doing it...
*Brown Rice -- on weeknights, I use the microwaveable kind
*Spicy chili starter tomato sauce
*Cut up white onion
*Cut up plum tomatoes
*Fajita-flavored chicken strips (but this time, I used spicy turkey bratwurst!)
Eso es caliente (that's spicy!!!). Enjoy!
