Mexican Food Love!

Mexican food seems to be everyone’s favorite! There’s something about those super colorful ingredients that just call on us. The bright red sweet tomatoes, the ultra-green creamy avocado, the sunny yellow peppers and so many more! Mexican food can be super healthy if we stick to mostly fresh wholesome ingredients. Rice, beans, veggies, and fresh salsas are all full of nutrients, so believe me when I tell you that you can eat the Mexican food you dream of and still stay healthy and on budget. Pretty perfect, right?

Bean and Rice Burrito to Burrito Bowl!

This incredible-looking bean burrito can be easily transformed into an equally mouth-drooling burrito bowl! Or should we call it bean burrito bowl? In any case, what matters is that you can prepare a super delicious and nutritious bowl in almost no time and without breaking the bank! Also, this would be an ideal meal for a casual family weekday dinner! Throw ingredients into a bowl (you can leave out some no-no’s for the picky ones!) and you’re good to go! Having an easy and inviting meal planned in your head right before mealtime is so helpful! Those moments when the hunger strikes and you have nothing ready are the moments when you’re most likely to reach for something not too healthy and surely not too easy on the wallet. Bean burrito for the win!

So, are you excited about trying this bean burrito yet? I have no doubt you’ll absolutely love it!
