I like to not complicate things some nights and throw together a one pot meal. I honestly can say that I despise doing dishes. It's my least favorite chore. I will take an opportunity to not dirty both saucepans, all my skillets, and every large utensil I've ever owned. Taco Tuesdays are usually pretty quick meals that don't dirty too many dishes, but I like to switch things up and not do tacos each week.  This burrito bowl is totally acceptable for Tuesday and it keeps with the ease of Tuesday's meals. It's a really great dish. Next time I make it, I'm definitely adding a bell pepper and a jalapeno to the onions to add more crunch to it because I feel that's about the only thing it lacked.
