Healthy Burrito Bowls

Healhty Burrito Bowls @ A Nest in the Rocks

I planned to make something new last week – a new kind of healthy Mexican recipe that the Big Helper and I were excited about.

Until one ingredient didn’t behave as expected.

At the very last minute, I needed to change things up, and these burrito bowls were the result.  We really liked them.  The veggies are spicy, and they’re easily customizable to suit everyone in your family.
