From My Kitchen: Burrito Bowl

Summer is here, and as much as I love rich, slow cooked dishes, soups, all that hearty stuff, it’s time to eat a little lighter. I recently made a Burrito Bowl, just because I really like Chipotle, but I can’t always get to one, and I don’t always want to spend the extra money on ordering out. So, I made my own. I ended up making mine vegetarian, because let’s face it, I can’t duplicate Chipotle’s recipes for their meats, and I do try to eat meat free meals at least every once in a while. This came out totally amazing, and it’s easy to assemble and prepare.

What you’ll need:

To make the chipotle cream sauce, combine sour cream, chipotle sauce, garlic, and lime juice in a medium bowl. Mix well. Add salt to taste.

To assemble the bowl, start by covering the bottom of the bowl with the lettuce. Lengthwise, add a layer of rice.

Lengthwise, add layers of corn, black beans, refried beans and diced tomatoes. On top add layers of chipotle cream sauce and salsa. Add Cheddar cheese.

Bon Appétit!

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
