One of my favorite things to get at Chipotle is a veggie bowl. It’s rice, beans, veggies, and then whatever toppings you want (cheese, salsa, guacamole, etc.). I decided to see if I could recreate this bowl at home. Mine didn’t taste exactly like Chipotle’s, but it was still good! I used brown rice, canned black beans that I jazzed up with lime juice and cumin, sauteed bell pepper and onion, and some avocado. My 9 year old had 3 bowls full! My 5 year old ate the rice and beans separately, and husband added loads of hot sauce to his.
brown rice (I used 3 boil-in-bag bags)
black beans (I used 3 cans)
lime juice, to taste
cumin, to taste
1 red bell pepper, cut into strips
1/2 white onion, cut into strips
1. cook rice and set aside.
2. saute pepper and onion in pan until they start to brown.
3. cook beans in a pot with a couple of splashes of lime juice and a sprinkle of cumin.
4. assemble bowls: rice, beans, pepper and onion mix, avocado, sour cream.
