If you’ve ever been to a Chipotle, I don’t blame you for falling in love. Blaine and I used to eat there at least once a week when we worked near each other years ago. But now the nearest Chipotle is about 45 minutes away so we don’t get to indulge as much as we used to. My favorite is a Vegetarian burrito and Blaine’s is the tacos. At home, though, we love to do burrito bowls. Super fast, easy and healthy if you do it right.
Put the following in a bowl and enjoy:
- cilantro lime quinoa (or rice) — add juice from 1/2 lime + chopped cilantro to cooked quinoa/rice
- sauteed bell peppers & onions — heat olive oil in a pan, add minced garlic for 1 minute (optional), add chopped peppers and onions. cook to personal preference.
- corn (frozen or cut off cob)
- sour cream or greek yogurt
- shredded cheese
- black beans
I’m seriously in love with this easy meal, sometimes I even cut my regular serving size in half and add it to a lot of lettuce and eat it as a salad. So many ways you can play around with this recipe.

[…] like the idea of a vegetarian burrito bowl, minus a few components. […]
I made this tonight with brown rice, green peas (instead of corn), olives, and avocado slices – absolutely awesome! Thank you so much!
YUM! You are SO welcome!
