Leftover Burrito Bowl Recipe

Leftover Burrito Bowl Recipe

I am not a chef, nor do I play one on t.v.  But my children insist that I feed them, and I insist that it be somewhat healthy.  I have a rotation of about 8 basic dinners we cycle through and this is our latest addition to that cycle.  It’s born out of a need to use our leftover quinoa from our broccoli quinoa casserole we had the night before (I’ll share that recipe next time).  I literally just started throwing everything I could think of in a pan, and this is the result.  My kids loved it.  Their friends who were at the house stayed for dinner and loved it, too.  So, here it is.

2 cans corn (drained and rinsed)

2 cans black beans (drained and rinsed)

2 cans diced tomatoes

2 cups of cooked quinoa (or however much is leftover in the fridge)

2 cans of Costco chicken (you could use rotisserie chicken or any leftovers you have, too)

1 packet taco seasoning

2 tbsp lime juice

Combine everything in a large skillet.  Cook until it’s hot (very technical, I know)

Leftover Burrito Bowl Recipe

Spoon into a bowl lined with a tortilla shell (or not).  Add guacamole and/or sour cream on the side and cheese on top (or not).  Enjoy!
