Hari and I love traveling, especially long road trips. There is something very energizing about open roads, music, us singing along, stopping at random places to explore and debate about random topics. Chipotle is our favorite fast food places to go when on these trips, its healthy and wholesome with a delicious vegetarian option which is not just salad. But then there are those days where we crave the goodness of a burrito bowl and live the memories of travel without really leaving the house, this is our fix for those days. Plus this easy to fix meal is actually faster than getting in the car and driving.
I use Cilantro Lime Rice and homemade Salsa (Recipes posted earlier)
This is a vegetarian version, but if you are a meat lover then just top it with cooked meat of your choice in assembly and your all set.
