Make It Yourself: Chipotle Burrito Bowl
The tiny city I live in finally got its first Chipotle a few months ago. Ever since then I’ve been way into their veggie burrito bowls and fresh ingredients. I am trying to save money and prepare my own, healthy meals so I tried my hand at making my very own Chipotle-esque burrito bowl at home.
This post from Iowa Girl Eats really helped me get started and her recipe for their rice sounds amazing. I kept my brown rice plain because that’s how I like it. Of course her rice recipe would taste much more like the kind at Chipotle.
Take your black beans and sprinkle in a bit of cumin, chili powder, salt, oregano and cayenne pepper. I microwaved these to make things a little easier.
I used a salsa recipe from A Healthy Slice of Life and it turned out wonderfully! I’d always shied away from making my own salsa because it seemed like so much work but it was actually very easy.
I then heated up some green pepper, extra firm tofu and mushrooms along with some cumin and chili powder.
Get the biggest bowl you can find and put your brown rice, veggies, tofu, salsa and guacamole (I used Wholly’s spicy- so good!) and dig in! This was so delicious and really hit the spot.
