I really like taco and burrito bowls and wanted to make something that was quick and easy at home. My husband and I really like how this turned out! Spoon into bowls and top with sour cream, crushed tortilla chips, lettuce, etc.

I only made changes because I didn't have all the correct ingredients. Thankfully this recipe is very forgiving. I substituted black beans for the pinto beans, white rice for the brown rice and a packet of taco seasoning instead of fajita seasoning. Super easy to prepare, easy to serve and it didn't destroy our kitchen. My wife and I really enjoyed it. I will make this one again! Read More

Cut way down on fat - used a bit of oil ground turkey instead of beef. Did not need to cook rice ahead of time as I added 1 C instant brown rice with 1/2 C water and an undrained can of diced tomatoes with chilies and cilantro and let simmer (covered) until rice was done. The rice absorbed the liquid from the tomatoes and salsa. Read More

I only cared for this just cooked. It is very different than a burrito places burrito bowl. It is more like a healthy scratch recipe for a hamburger helper with beans instead of the noodles. I used lean beef and simple subs I had to make were using chicken taco seasoning for fajita seasoning kidney beans for the pinto cooked farro for the brown rice and I made my own homemade fresh salsa today with tomatoes onions green peppers etc. I have to admit I liked it best before adding the cheese. It tasted much better on top. I later added extra homemade salsa to bring back the fresher flavor and a little extra seasoning. Just be careful with the seasoning if not wanting too much of a salty flavor. Either way it made for a quick meal on a busy day and I don't normally consider hamburger dishes high fiber ones.

It was very bland so I added more of the fajita seasoning and some diced green chilies; very easy to make and serve over lettuce as a salad. Read More

I almost prepared this as written I had homemade charro beans instead of canned so that means mine probably has more seasonings. It was quick and easy and we all enjoyed. Read More
