The Burrito Bowl sounds elaborate, but the fact is that it is not too time-consuming. Moreover, it is a satiating one-dish meal, which is completely worth the effort.

Here, rice is boosted with colourful veggies, ketchup and appropriate seasonings; layered with refried beans, sour cream and uncooked salsa; and finally garnished with cheese and other ingredients; before topping with crushed nacho chips, to make a totally irresistible one dish meal .

Refried beans is a staple accompaniment in Mexican cuisine and is readily available at stores, but making it fresh at home with tomatoes, spring onions and cooked rajma, gives an awesome flavour that beats any packaged option!

Assemble each serving of the Burrito Bowl separately so that everybody gets an equal share of the goodies, and enjoy it immediately upon preparation.

Tarla Dalal    Hi, I would suggest to assemble it last moment to enjoy the freshness.. Keep everything ready before hand but when guests come heat the rice and beans and assemble it with other ingredients. It is 2 1/2 cups cooked rice, it was an error from our side it will be rectified very soon. Thank you for informing us.
