The Burrito Bowl



I made this wonderful bowl last night for dinner and it was so good that I wanted to share the recipe with you guys.

This bowl is basically a burrito in a bowl, so if you wanted to put this up in wrap you would  now have a tasty burrito!

For the  Spicy Black Beans:

  • 2 Tablespoon of coconut oil
  • 1 Cup of sweet diced onion
  • 4 medium-sized garlic cloves minced
  • 1 Cup of fresh tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon of chili powder ( Less if you have someone sensitive to spice)
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic
  • 1 teaspoon dried Oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper or to taste ( Optional)
  •  Dash of sea salt
  • Can of black beans drained and rinsed

  1. Make rice as directed on package – set aside when done
  2. While rice is cooking, prepare the spice black beans in a large skillet. Add the oil, stir in the onions and garlic until softened
  3. stir in the tomatoes, chili powder, garlic powder, dried oregano, cayenne( is using)  and salt until tomatoes are soften.
  4. Stir in tomato sauce and black beans. Cook until heated throughout.
  5. put to the side

For the Avocado Lime Sauce – in a food processor mix together the mince garlic,  avocado, lime juice, water and salt until smooth.

When everything is ready, place the rice into bowls, tops with a couple scoops of the black bean mix and a large spoonful of the avocado sauce, salsa (optional) and garnish with green onions,  fresh sliced grape tomatoes and cilantro.


Hope you like this recipe as much as I did!

Have a great hump day!
