burrito bowls

When I get home from work, I’m hungry. As much as I love making dinner, sometimes I’m just ready to eat and I don’t want to spend a lot of time prepping, chopping, and cooking. That’s when I look for shortcuts. These burrito bowls only take a few minutes to throw together so you’ll have dinner ready in no time!

For this particular recipe, I used the Minute® Ready to Serve Organic Red Quinoa and Brown Rice with Garlic which is a blend of organic red quinoa and brown rice with a little garlic and onion. It is 100% whole grain, a good source of fiber and gluten free.

It’s easy to customize these bowls with whatever you love!

How to Make Avocado Lime Sauce

You can make the avocado lime sauce a few hours in advance if you like. The lime juice will help prevent the avocado from browning, but I don’t recommend making it more than a few hours in advance.

  • In a small dish, mash the avocado and stir in the lime juice.
  • Stir in the mayo and add a pinch of salt.

If you want to make the sauce super smooth, feel free to blend it in a small food processor.

You could obviously add any of your favorite toppings to this. Cheese, sour cream, salsa, etc. I had mine with a little bit of the avocado lime sauce drizzled on top and that was all I needed! Of course, I scooped up some of my bowl with chips… because that’s the best part of a burrito bowl!
