Burrito Bowls are all the rage right now and with good reason; they are fabulous! Done right, they have tons of flavor and with the use of both rice and beans, they are quite filling. After cooking the rice, I seasoned it with lime zest, lime juice and cilantro. That is some tasty rice! By the way, I always use Basmati rice. I find it cooks up better than any other rice I have tried. Other ingredients may include avocado, salsa and sour cream but you can and should add whatever you like. I used cubed pork loin that I marinated for six hours before grilling and it was absolutely mouth watering! I added shredded lettuce, sliced red bell pepper and thinly sliced scallions for an extra boost of flavor. The red salsa was delicious but next time I am going to try salsa verde which I think goes very well with pork. There’s no reason we can’t experiment and I am thinking I might try marinating some cod for an hour or so before grilling it. Sort of like a fish taco burrito bowl!
Here’s what we’ll need.
