Chipotle-Inspired Veggie Bowl

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.

    I will have to try this. My daughter won’t eat at Chipotle because they use cilantro in their rice and she hates the taste of cilantro. This may be a good compromise for all of us if I can make this for her. Thank you for sharing!

  2. This looks so good, especially since I love chipotle’s veggie bowl! I’ll have to try this!
