Burrito Bowls with Avocado Cilantro Lime Rice | Anchors Aweigh


Burrito Bowls with Avocado Cilantro Lime Rice

Well that title was a mouthful. Anyway, I am a big Chipotle fan. There is just something about grilled meat topped with fresh veggies over cilantro lime rice. I found this recipe on Pinterest and figured, why not?! I was so pleased with this homemade version, and Parker thought it tasted like something right out of Chipotle. I followed the recipe for the rice, but the burrito bowl can really be anything your little heart desires. I just mixed and matched with what I had on hand, and it made for quite a tasty little dinner!

Cilantro Lime Rice
4 cups cooked brown rice
2 avocados, ripe
2 Tbsp lime juice
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1 Tbsp minced garlic
salt and pepper, to taste

Burrito Bowl Fixins (just suggestions, choose what you like!)
Grilled steak or chicken (make it easy and buy the pre grilled meat in the frozen foods section)
black beans
sour cream
extra cilantro for garnish 
tomatoes, diced

1. Mash avocados in a large bowl. Stir in lime juice, cilantro, cumin, and garlic. Season with salt and pepper to taste. 
2. Add warm cooked rice and stir to combine.
3. Top rice with your meat and burrito bowl fixins and serve warm.

So simple, but so yummy. Enjoy!

This is one of my favorite things to make when I'm craving Chipotle but don't want to leave the house!

These sound sooo good! I have to admit, I tried to make cilantro lime rice a few weeks ago and thought I didn't need to use a recipe-- it ended up being too much lime or something and was not good! I'll have to keep this recipe in mind!

I LOVE Chipotle food but am not fond of the loud crazy atmosphere (is it that way everywhere?) Thanks goodness we have a toned down version called Q'Doba ... And BTW your homemade bowl looks delicious and I'd even venture to say sometimes our homemade creations can be even tastier than the originals we mimicked. :)
