Bowls are popular these days and for good reason. Even if your kids aren’t picky inevitably, one kid likes beans and corn, one likes beans and not corn and one like corn and not beans. When you make these burrito bowls you can set everything out in separate bowls and let everyone make their own.

This recipe is also super quick to prepare with very little cooking. Feel free to use quinoa, brown rice, or even cauliflower rice as your base here.
