Whenever I make a tasty Mexican style meat like chicken carnitas I like to make extra to ensure leftovers for things like quesadillas and burrito bowls! Burrito bowls are essentially burritos that are served in bowls minus the tortillas and they are super easy to make! Typically a burrito bowl will start off with rice, but a lighter alternative is a cauliflower rice, followed by beans, vegetables like lettuce and tomatoes, and then finished off with things like guacamole, sour cream, salsa and cheese. Although you can go overboard filling out a burrito bowl it is pretty easy to keep them nice and light, healthy and satisfying and this burrito bowl does it with style! Forget waiting for leftovers! I am going to make another batch of chicken carnitas for more burrito bowls now!
Just look at that bowl full of goodness!
