We've always like Chipotle's Burrito Bowls, and had a hankering for one the other night. We happen to have what looked like most of the essential ingredients, so we decided to give it a shot. Chipotle move over. We got this, and it's a tasty, quick and easy dish for a summer family or party meal!
There's obviously a lot more on the buffet line here than cilantro rice, but it's the cilantro and lime rice that gives the dish such a distinct flavor, and takes out of the realm of plain old burrito night.

1 lb ground beef
1 - 15 oz. can black beans
