I am in love with the Chipotle Burrito Bowls and have been dying to try out their recipes for a long time now. Recently I hosted a dinner for friends and decided to try to make this amazing recipe. My only problem is that I am not good at following instructions and so I ended up with a version totally my own 🙂
The basic ingredients needed for a burrito bowl are a base of white rice, some grilled chicken or beef, salsa, beans, lettuce, capsicum, tomatoes, cheddar cheese and cream.
The rice is plain boiled rice with some cilantro added in the end.
The chicken can be grilled and then shredded. Use any seasoning you want.
The Salsa can either be bought form the market or you can make your own. To make your own just add 1 14oz can to tomato paste, 4 tomatoes, one small onion, one green onion, some lemon juice, 1-2 jalapenos, 6-8 garlic cloves and some salt. Just blend the entire mixture and taste. Add more salt or lemon juice according to taste.
The beans I used were garbanzo and black beans. I actually boiled them and them fried them for a bit. I then made dips out of these too since I think they were easier to eat that way. Both dips were made the same way. I added the beans, 2 tomatoes, 2 jalapenos, lemon juice, 6-8 garlic cloves and some salt and blended the mixture.
The cheddar cheese was grated and the tomatoes and capsicum were chopped.
That’s it. All done. Now start building your burrito bowl and have fun!
