Turkey Burrito Bowl
Mexican food lovers raise your hands! I know you're out there. Yes, I am talking to you. Mister I can eat my weight in chips, salsa, guac, and queso. I see you. I feel you. I got you this week. Well except the queso but that will come at a later date.
Enter the homemade turkey burrito bowl. It is a weekday healthy meal savior. All the Mexican flavors you loved cozied up in a bowl waiting to satisfy your tummy.
These Turkey Burrito Bowls are one of our weekly rotation staples. It is healthy-check, quick to make-check, makes a lot to eat on throughout the week-check, all of the things I love for our Sunday-Thursday meals. I usually go with ground turkey for the main protein source. Add a little taco seasoning and brown until cooked thoroughly. If I don't have my own taco seasoning made up, my favorite package seasoning is Trader Joe's. I can get 2 uses out of it and it's 0.79...score! Add in brown rice, black beans, veggies, shredded lettuce, cheese, salsa and of course avocado. I like to add a little cumin and chili powder to the black beans and veggies just to give it an extra spicy flavor. Canned green chilies is also a great addition to the veggies if you have any on hand....knocks the flavor up a couple notches. Easy peasy, filling, and absolutely delicious.
The beauty of this is you can add or dismiss any ingredients you like. Think of this as your own person Chiptole line. Add your favorite toppings and have fun with it. This is also a great recipe to make for company coming over. Your guests can bring the chips and dip and have a fiesta themed dinner allowing everyone to make their own bowls to their likings.
I will store the leftovers in all separate containers in the fridge and assemble when needed for meals on the go for us. I even enjoy this meal cold (weird....I know).
So go forth and start creating burrito bowls. You won't regret satisfying your Mexican craving. Let me know down below what your favorite add-ins are for your bowls! Enjoy!Print
