Mexican Burrito Bowls Recipe

Mexican Burrito Bowls

What is it that makes our love of Mexican food keep getting stronger? Maybe it’s the spiciness, or perhaps it that it’s so easy to make or that it comes in many different forms. With crunchy nachos, fresh salsa, wraps, bakes and burritos there is a lot to choose from. And if you are a fan of coriander you are sure to be a Mexican food lover as coriander is the number one herb used in Mexican cooking. So in keeping with the Mexican way, we have included it in our recipe for Burrito bowls.

We all know that burritos are delicious wraps bursting with yummy fillings. But did you know that burrito bowls are becoming almost popular?

Burrito bowls are like a deconstructed burrito without the wrap and are often considered to be healthier than burritos.

If you have never made a burrito bowl before this recipe is for you. It is packed with lots of flavours and textures and makes a super summer lunch or a quick midweek dinner.

The only cooking required is the mince and onion, other ingredients are just heated making this super easy to prepare.

Using the Chilli Con Carne recipe base means that you don’t need to buy a heap of different spices, just top with coriander and lime for a fresh tangy finish to balance the chilli.
