One of my favourite meals these days for a great balance of all the great nutrients you need, is definitely a Mexican burrito bowl. Just look at those beautiful colours! They’ve got to be good for you. Well, it was a day off, and I thought it would be a fun to have a mini burrito party for dinner.
The shrimp and chicken filling is easy enough. I sautéed the juicy shrimp with some olive oil, salt and spicy cajun seasoning. For the chicken, bake it in the oven with rosemary and thyme.
Then, we get to the absolutely essential Mexican black bean tomato rice. You can get these black beans canned, and it’s incredibly simple to prepare.
Just cook some rice in a cooker, before stir-frying it in garlic, onions, olive oil, tomato paste and some baked beans. Super simple, but absolutely delicious. This will form a delicious base for your burrito.
And don’t forget condiments like jalapeños, shredded cheese, sour cream and limes. All of these adds so much more depth of flavour and extra oomph to your burrito.
Part of the fun is really customising and putting your own burrito together. It’s a great meal to prepare for a party or a group. And if there’s leftovers, you can always create a custom burrito bowl for lunch the next day.
This meal is definitely a new favourite. Do try it and let me know how it goes for you!
