Incredibly satisfying and fulfilling, a big burrito bowl can be the key to your happiness whenever you crave a hearty meal. Chipotle has been serving this Burrito Bowl Recipe for some time and most of its regular customers love this item mainly due to its variety of delightful flavors.
Even though the Burrito Bowl Recipe might take some extra effort and time to make at home, you will never resist the freshness of this burrito bowl recipe. You can choose whatever source of protein you like and incorporate any type of salsa along with toppings of choice.
Storing and Reheating Burrito Bowls
Storing the components of the dish separately is recommended if you’re meal prepping. While the rice is in one container, you may keep the chicken and other toppings separately. This will ensure the freshness of every ingredient.
When it comes to serving, you can simply microwave them without corn salsa, pico de gallo, and guacamole until they are warm throughout. You can reheat in a saucepan (medium heat).
Our burrito bowls will stay fresh in the fridge for up to four days. However, the ingredients in corn salsa, guacamole, and pico de gallo will start to brown after a day or two. If you want to prolong the life of these ingredients, we recommend storing them separately from the rest of the dish. You can add extra lemon juice or lime juice to salsa, pico de gallo, and guacamole to help prevent browning.
You can freeze the rice, cooked black beans, and chicken. But we do not recommend freezing the corn salsa, guacamole, or pico de gallo since they will not hold up well in the freezer. However, you may freeze the remaining ingredients and include others fresh when serving.
Our burrito bowls contain protein, carbs, fiber, and vitamins from the vegetables and fresh herbs. Therefore, it can be said that these burrito bowls provide you with well-rounded nutrition. If you prefer more healthy eating, you may reduce carbs from the rice and include more vegetables and protein in your burrito bowl.
Yes, our burrito bowls are free from any gluten-related ingredients. Therefore, anyone who follows a gluten-free diet suffers from a Celiac condition or is sensitive to gluten can include this recipe in their diet.
The burrito bowls we made are not suitable for vegans or vegetarians since we included chicken and melted butter in them. But, you can skip the chicken and substitute it with tofu to make vegan-friendly, vegetarian-friendly burrito bowls. And for the butter vegans can use oil instead. You may also customize other toppings accordingly.
The burrito bowls we made are unsuitable for a ketogenic or a low-carb diet because we have included rice. But those who follow any low-carb diet can substitute a keto-friendly rice like cauliflower rice and enjoy this recipe.
