One Pot Burrito Bowls

A hearty, flavorful meal that you cook in one pot and serve up with as many or as few toppings as you want!

I know this seems awfully close to the Taco Turkey Skillet I posted not too long ago, I promise that they are not identical. This one has a few more ingredients in it (black beans and green chillies - yum!) and does not use instant rice. The methods are just slightly different and this is also not a turkey dish, but ground beef instead. Via the blog I retrieved the recipe from, it can be served over a bed of lettuce with tortilla chips - which was a great way to eat it. It's also completely open-ended for toppings. Add as many or as few as you desire. This is a great one dish meal for busy nights - just like the other recipe. I definitely suggest trying both! :)

What you need:
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1/3 cup thick and chunky salsa
  • 1 can (15 oz.) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (15 oz.) corn, drained
  • 1 can (14.5 oz.) diced tomatoes
  • 1 can (4 oz.) diced green chillies 
  • 1 cup long grain brown rice
  • 1 Tbsp. taco seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp. chili powder
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
For Toppings (totally optional!):
  • Shredded cheddar jack cheese
  • Sour cream
  • Avocado or guacamole
  • Green onions
  • Diced tomatoes 
  • Shredded lettuce
  • Tortilla chips or strips
  1. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Brown ground beef, crumbling as you go. After a few minutes, add onion and red pepper. Finish cooking the ground beef until no longer pink.
  2. Stir in salsa, black beans, corn, tomatoes, green chillies, rice, taco seasoning, and chili powder.
  3. Pour chicken broth in and bring to a boil. Cover the skillet and reduce heat to low.
  4. Cook for 15 to 20 minutes or until rice is done.
  5. Stir in cilantro and salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Serve with desired toppings. You can serve it on a bed of lettuce or tortilla chips --or-- serve those as toppings. It's up to you!
