The last few weeks we have been very different from our normal routines. One of the things we miss the most is the sporadic trip to Chipotle or our favorite taco place in Baltimore, Clavel. While we are trying to support our local restaurants we have definitely limited how much we eat out and definitely not on a whim like we use to. Instead we are cooking a lot of our restaurants at home in our own kitchen.

Burrito bowls are something that is so easy to recreate at home. Most of the ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen. We most definitely support ordering delivery or safe take-out from your local favorites, this is something you can make at home.

We chose ground turkey to keep this meal on the leaner side. However, feel free to substitute with ground beef or any other protein you are in the mood for. In addition, we were in the refried beans mood when we made this but my Chipotle favorite is their black beans. Add some cheese and sour cream to really get this burrito bowl party started. One of my Chipotle favorite’s is the  guacamole. Try ours out and let us know what you think!

Think of this as your own Chipotle or taco bar. Whatever you normally get or add to your burrito bowl try it out with this. Your kitchen is now the Mexican hotspot of the town. And what kind of burrito/taco night is it without some margaritas. We’ll have to add our go-to recipe for those soon. Phillip was a bartender for years so I put him to the test often for some yummy margs!

From our kitchen to yours, cheers!
