Can we be honest for a minute? I make a boat load of food on a weekly basis. Most of it is pretty because I want to instagram it and show all of you gorgeous food. However, sometimes it’s weird looking, and not beautiful. But often times those are the best creations.
Like these Quinoa Burrito Bowls. I tried to make them as pretty as possible for you, but let’s be real, about 10 seconds after I snapped these pics, I took my spoon, tossed everything together (I mean, there absolutely has to be equal guacamole and salsa distribution in every bite), and chowed down. So then it was just a big bowl of messiness but it was freaking tasty. So good. Big deal kinda good. I may or may not have licked the bowl and then had seconds. Sorry, I’m not sorry.
We probably have them for dinner at least twice a week. They are beyond easy to throw together and it’s a medley of my favorite flavors.
It all starts with some kind of base. We go back and forth between quinoa and farro, but quinoa won today. So let’s go with it. Quinoa Burrito Bowls – ready set go!
Quinoa on the bottom.
Black beans on top.
Shredded Chicken goes on top of that!
And then we get to pile on whatever we want. I’m partial to some shredded monterey jack cheese, guacamole, salsa, chives and some crema! And voila…. dinner is ready.
Annnnd. Lunch is ready for the next day too because these are bomb for leftovers. Just be sure to make a fresh batch of guac if you’re eating it the next day… no one likes a slightly brown guacamole. That’s weird.
I hope you all have an absolutely fantastic looooong weekend filled with lots of good eats, fun memories and some sunshine.
Remember how I said that my Easy Mexican Shredded Chicken was a staple in my house! Well here's another recipe using that simple go-to chicken recipe!
