While you could keep your veggie burrito bowl as basic as some roasted veggies and canned beans served over a bed of rice, a few extra steps and ingredients will really pay off and turn a somewhat boring-healthy dinner into a meal that everyone begs for (that also happens to be very healthy). To make these easy burrito bowls, you’ll need:
Bell peppers. We like to use a combo of red and green, jto make this burrito bowl as colorful as possible.
Limes. You’ll need these for the burrito bowl toppings, and for the avocado crema (more on that later.)
Taco seasoning. Homemade, or store bought in a pinch.
Beans. Pinto or black—either work great.
Jarred salsa. Or homemade! Whatever is easy—you’ll mostly be using this to flavor the beans.
Cilantro-lime rice. Of course, you can use plain or brown rice if that’s what you’ve got. Or, you’ve got leftover rice, just jazz it up a little with some cilantro, lime juice and zest! Yum!
