A Burrito Bowl

Burrito Bowl Recipe

A Burrito Bowl is a delicious and customizable dish that combines the flavors and ingredients of a burrito in a bowl, without the tortilla wrap.

History of Burrito Bowl

The Burrito Bowl as we know it today is a product of the evolution of Mexican-American cuisine, particularly the popularity of burritos and the "build-your-own" restaurant concept. While it may not have a single, distinct origin, its development can be traced through the changing culinary landscape of Mexican-inspired food in the United States.

Here's a basic recipe to get you started, but feel free to customize it to your taste:


For the Rice:

  • 1 cup long-grain white rice
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Juice of 1 lime (optional)

For the Protein (optional)

  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, drained and rinsed

For the Vegetables (choose your favorites):

  • 1 cup corn kernels (fresh, frozen, or canned)
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup diced bell peppers (various colors)
  • 1 cup diced red onion
  • 1 cup diced avocado or guacamole
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce or chopped spinach

Toppings (optional):

  • Salsa or pico de gallo
  • Sliced jalapeños
  • Fresh cilantro
  • Lime wedges

How to Cook Burrito Bowl Recipe:

  1. Prepare the Rice: Rinse the rice under cold water until the water runs clear. In a medium saucepan, bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Stir in the rinsed rice and 1 teaspoon of salt. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for about 18-20 minutes, or until the rice is cooked and the water is absorbed. Fluff the cooked rice with a fork and squeeze lime juice over it, if desired.
  2. Prepare the Vegetables: Dice and prepare your choice of vegetables and set them aside.
  3. Assemble the Burrito Bowl: Start with a base of cooked rice in a bowl. Add your choice of protein(s) on top of the rice.
  4. Add the Vegetables: Arrange the diced vegetables around the protein.
  5. Add Toppings: Sprinkle on your favorite toppings, such as salsa, sliced jalapeños, and fresh cilantro.
  6. Serve: Serve your Burrito Bowl immediately, with lime wedges on the side for an extra burst of flavor.

Customize: Feel free to customize your Burrito Bowl with additional ingredients like hot sauce, guacamole, or your favorite salad dressing.
