Homemade Burrito Bowls

Homemade Burrito Bowls

This is probably not a shock to you, but I’m not a huge fast food fan. In fact, mid-range restaurants in general aren’t my cup of tea (Here’s my full rant).

But, if I have to choose fast food and I have my choice of all fast food places, I’ll frequently choose Chipotle. One reason for this is because I have a serious Tex-Mex bias, but I also think they make fairly quality dishes and it’s not super-complicated. You pretty much know what you are getting.

But guess what? That also means that it’s pretty easy to make stuff they serve at home. Burritos? Tacos? This stuff isn’t rocket science.
