Mexican food is a staple in our house. It’s easy, delicious, and there are so many great recipes you can make with just a few ingredients!

While we love a good burrito, sometimes it’s fun to mix things up a bit. The Burrito Bowl is a great way to do this! Make it low carb or customize It any way you’d like.

We layer some of our favorite fresh ingredients, but you can easily add on some black olives, fresh jalapenos, or anything you’d like. Either way, they’re delicious!
