Burrito Bowl

As I recently mentioned in my Cilantro Lime Rice post, I love Qdoba and Chipotle.  When I go there, I always order the same thing - a Burrito Bowl, or Naked Burrito, consisting of: Rice, Meat and Cheese.  As plain and simple as it is, I cannot get enough of it and often crave it.  Whatever meat I chose all depends on my mood, but it's usually Grilled Chicken or Shredded Beef.  Eventually I will find a shredded beef recipe that I will want to use to make these at home, but until then I stick with a simply marinated grilled chicken - the marinade usually consisting of a little EVOO, Lime Juice, a bit of tequila, some garlic, chili powder and jalapeño... delicious!

While this isn't much of a recipe, I still wanted to post, for anyone that loves burrito bowls like I do.  They're so easy to make at home with your own modifications.  Just because I like mine plain, as you can tell from the picture, doesn't mean you can't go all out!

Fill a bowl with desired amount of rice and top with burrito classics and then cheese and other burrito toppings.


  1. They just built a Qdoba out my way! Waiting for them to open up!! I never thought to make a bowl burrito, I always wrap mine up.

  2. I love chipotle best and that's always what I order too--except with loads of salsa beans and veggies as well. I need to attempt to make the rice at home so we can just enjoy these from our own kitchen! Thanks for the inspiration :)
