Burrito Bowls



This is my take on our favorite Chipotle burrito bowls.  We may or may not go there once a week...


serves 4

3 cups cooked quinoa
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
juice of one lime
1 can black beans
1 can garbanzo beans
1 small can of diced green chilies (optional)
1 bay leaf
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp corriander
1 tsp paprika
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 onion, sliced
1 large bell pepper, sliced
3 kale leaves, stemmed and roughly chopped
4 cloves of garlic, chopped
quacamole (if you are feeling lazy, like I was, you can use the store bought yumminess)

Cook quinoa according to package directions.  When done add in chopped cilantro and lime juice.

Heat beans in a saucepan over medium low heat.  Add in spices and bay leaf.  Simmer until ready to use.

Heat oil in a large cast iron skillet over medium heat.  Add in sliced onions, bell peppers and kale.  Cook for 5 minutes.  Add in garlic and saute until veggies are tender.

Layer in a bowl and top with quacamole!
