Burrito Bowls with Corn and Tomatoes

Burrito bowls are such an easy and quick meal. Toss rice, a bean and corn salad, and fresh tomatoes, vegetables, and a protein into a bowl to pull together dinner in a flash.

To make these burrito bowls, you can prepare all of the ingredients in advance and reheat them to assemble and serve. 

If you love the Chipotle restaurant burrito bowls, these are a great copycat way to enjoy making them at home. And there's no upcharge for extra avocado!

This burrito bowl includes fluffy rice, black beans, pico de gallo, and lots of fresh vegetables. It is great for lunch or dinner when you want a quick meal. 

Top this bowl with a delicious smoky, spicy chipotle dressing that has been lightened up with added yogurt. 

Burrito Bowls with Corn and Tomatoes Ingredients.

Ingredients and Assembly Instructions:


For the rice, you can use premade rice or leftover rice, or you can make rice the same day. This recipe is super flexible. Just be sure to salt the rice so that it doesn't taste bland. 

Chipotle Dressing:

You can make the dressing a few days in advance. Just mix full fat plain yogurt, mayonnaise, apple cider vinegar, dried dill, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, and some of the sauce from a can of chipotles in adobo. 

Corn and Black Bean Salad:

Mix drained and rinsed canned black beans with either fresh or frozen corn kernels and fresh pico de gallo, plus some salt.

Start by placing the rice in the bowl and topping it with the bean and corn salad. 

Additional ingredients:

I added chopped romaine, and topped it with fresh cherry tomatoes, red onion slices, sliced olives, and avocado slices. For the protein, I added a little bit of taco meat. You could substitute cooked shrimp, shredded chicken, scrambled chorizo and eggs, or a handful of a Mexican cheese blend or crumbled cotija. 

You can also skip the protein layer as there is plenty of protein in the beans.

While I added some avocado slices, you could also make your own guacamole for topping the burrito bowl. 

Possible Shortcuts For Making Burrito Bowls:

For the rice, you can buy premade microwavable rice. The stuff is pretty good and is ready in two minutes!

For the pico de gallo, I love the premade pico you can find in the refrigerator section of the grocery store. Even better is the pico de gallo that you can often find at farmer's markets. 

For the black beans, a 15 ounce can, drained and rinsed, is so much easier than cooking your own.

The chipotle dressing is delicious and spicy. It's great on salads, on tacos, and even as a dip for vegetables. 

This burrito bowl is such a delicious way to enjoy the fresh bounty from the farmer's markets this summer.
