Being from New Mexico I know my burritos so I had misgivings about this dish. How extremely and pleasantly surprised I was by how good this is! Plus it is only the 2nd time I have tried quinoa...the first time it didn't get done and really wasn't good. This time I added more water and cooked longer! All the flavors in this dish mix so well with one another and the lime makes it perfect! And it is very simple to prepare! Hubby and I both liked it and agreed we should make it again.
I substituted black beans for pinto but otherwise made the recipe according to the directions. I was afraid it would be it would be bland but I was pleasantly surprised...the flavor was fantastic! Will definitely make this again.
Came across this recipe while searching for heart healthy meals and man was this a winner! Quick easy and delicious! Very versatile as you can adjust the spices and ingredients to your tastes. I used black beans instead of pinto beans and also added some onion garlic & cayenne pepper to the beans. I didn't have any lettuce on hand but it was fine without it. I put some corn in the bowl too. This will be going into our regular meal rotation! Yum!
Why have I been spending 12/bowl at Chipotle when I can make it myself?! This was an awesome recipe and my family absolutely loved it! Planning to make this a regular meal each week to cut costs on eating out. Best part... the guac isn't extra.:P
This was an awesome recipe and really quick to pull together. I used thin chicken cutlets on a grill pan and it all assembled in under half an hour. The bowl had really good bold flavors but also felt really light. My friend and I both went back for seconds. Making it again this week for my hubby!
