Quinoa Burrito Bowls are a way of life in our house. And this one is hands down, one of my favorites!

We probably have some form of a Burrito Bowl 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, rice 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 of that. Every other topping you'd want in a burrito.... meat, cheese, salsa, guacamole... you get the idea. I love keeping a handful of homemade (or fresh store bought) salsas on hand so I can easily change flavor profiles of these versatile bowls! If you want to avoid meat, or just prefer another protein, check out these avocado shrimp quinoa bowls, that are equally loved in our household.

  1. I'm sitting at my desk eating this for lunch and I'm so happy!! This chicken is everything!
    I used your chipotle salsa recipe and I was informed by my BF that I need to make it weekly ... it's SO good and full of flavor! I agree with one of the other comments about the beans - I LOVE spicy food and these were really up there. I actually squeezed 2 limes into it and added cilantro to calm it down a bit. I wonder if the measurement is off slightly? Either way, totally fixable and worth it ... this is DELISH. It will go on the weekly rotation for awhile I'm sure. Thank you Gaby! We love your recipes and I LOVE that there are 47,000 other bowl recipes that I have yet to try!

  2. I made these last night, they were SO good! I had some smoked cheese in the fridge to use up and it really worked well, especially as I used basic tomato salsa and bought guacamole, ran out of time to make fresh.

  3. Simply gorgeous! I love mixing everything together and eating it too... best way to do it! A million bursts of yummy flavours!

  4. Wow, you read my mind! I'm having friends over for lunch this weekend and I was going to make a Mexican themed lunch party! I've added this to the list of food 🙂
