Introduction: One Pot Burrito Bowl
This One Pot Burrito Bowl is not only delicious, it's also fantastically fast to make. If you get your act up, you can make this burrito bowl in one pot in less than half an hour. And, in one pot, in less than half an hour, you can make enough dinner to serve a considerably large family. If you don't have enough people to serve this to, it makes perfect leftovers for the next day.
Step 1: Ingredients
1 pound ground beef
½ cup salsa
1 can black beans, or re fried beans, or a mixture of both
2 tablespoons taco seasoning
1 cup long grain rice, cooked ahead of time
1 large onion
1 cup monterey jack, shredded
1 can diced tomatoes
1 tablespoon oil
1 yellow bell pepper
¼ teaspoon chili powder
chopped fresh tomatoes
Step 2: Onion and Bell Pepper
Mince both onion and bell pepper finely.
Step 3: Sauteing the Vegetables
Heat oil in a large deep pan (like the one where I cook the meat in) until hot. I accidentally used too small of a pan and had to switch over to the larger one to be able to fit in all of the ingredients.
Add in the onion and bell pepper to pan, and saute until very brown. Remove from pan to a small bowl.
Step 4: The Ground Beef
Add the ground beef to the same pan that you had the vegetables in, and stir and break up with a spatula until meat is cooked and brown. Drain the meat juices that are shown above.
Step 5: Add Everything to the Pan
Before you add everything, if you don't want super chunky tomatoes from the can, you can easily use an immersion blender to blend it up some. (mine basically became tomato sauce).
Then add canned tomatoes, black beans, salsa, taco seasoning, and chili powder, and previously cooked rice.
(for how to cook rice, see here: How to Cook Rice)
Stir all the ingredients until well combined.
Step 6: Done!
You are now sort of done with it. Just one more thing:
For Garnishes, you can cut up some cilantro, and sprinkle that with a generous helping of your shredded cheese over the steaming top of your Burrito Bowl.
