Burrito Bowl with Cilantro Lime Dressing

Change up taco night with this burrito bowl with cilantro lime dressing recipe.

Burrito Bowl with Cilantro Lime Dressing

Does your family like Mexican or Tex Mex food as much as mine does? 

Some sort of Mexican type of food makes it on our menu plan at least once a week. 

We love it because it is usually easy to make using ingredients that I almost always have on hand. 

Tacos, oven tacos, freezer burritos, taco soup, Mexican pizza, and slow cooked pork with Mexican cole slaw are all favorites at my house. 

Burrito Bowl with Cilantro Lime Dressing Recipe

One of my favorite quick and easy meals for taco night has become taco or burrito bowls. 

They are easy to make and everyone loves them. They also make taco night less expensive.

Serving the meat and toppings over rice helps stretch the more expensive ingredients like the meat. Rice is cheap, meat isn’t. 

Serving it over rice also works great for serving a crowd. With current events, not many of us are feeding crowds, but someday we will be again. And when we are burrito bowls need to be on the menu. 

Burrito Bowl with Cilantro Lime Dressing and Black Beans

I have not shared a lot of burrito bowl type recipes because most of the time I don’t really use a recipe.

We usually just use whatever meat we have on hand or that I found on sale. We pile the meat on rice with beans, cheese, and other toppings. 

Over the summer though I changed up burrito bowls by serving them with a dressing. Similar to a salad dressing.

Burrito Bowl with Cilantro Lime Dressing takes your basic burrito bowl and gives it an extra depth of flavor. 

What ingredients are in a burrito bowl?

This depends on what you like. I am sharing a basic recipe, but you can change up the type of meat, beans, cheese, etc. 

For a basic burrito bowl you need:

  • cooked meat

  • rice

  • sour cream, lettuce, or guacamole are also good
