A few months back when we were introduced to Chipotle, a Mexican eatery Chain, we got hooked onto this veggie Bowl. I have since been making this at home often by varying the toppings/veggies as per availability at home.

I found that picky eaters at home are easily satisfied and it can be a very balanced meal as well.

As part of BM #31, I have opted to showcase some interesting Mexican food. For Day 1 Week 2, here it is..

Ingredients - 

Rice, cooked 1 cup (I used Sona Masoori Rice but any long grain rice can be used)
Black Beans/Red Kidney Beans, cooked 1 cup
Taco Seasoning as needed
Guacamole 2-3 Tbsp
Sour Cream as needed
Lettuce, Shredded as needed
Corn, shelled and boiled as needed
Tomato, deseeded and finely chopped as needed
Onions, finely chopped as needed
Cheese, Shredded as needed
Hot Sauce / Sri Racha as needed
Stir Fried Bell Peppers (Optional)

Method Of Preparation -

To season the black beans, add the flavors suitable to your palate. I went ahead and just added some taco seasoning this time. Sometimes I add sauteed onion, tomato puree and Chole/Chana Masala and use it here.

To assemble the veggie bowl, Spread rice, layer the black bean mixture, shredded lettuce, corn, onions, tomatoes and finally generously sprinkle shredded cheese.

Serve this platter with a side of Guacamole, Sour cream and Hot Sauce.
