One pot Burrito bowl

I was on pinterest and found this yummy recipe from a blog called I heart nap time. I love burrito bowls at Chipolte so I thought I should check it out. The photo was amazing and all the ingredients looked great together. I didn't realize how much it would make but for big eaters this is perfect. I sent some of the leftovers to my neighbors and they replied back very happy with it. 

My mom just loved it and has been using the it in a burrito for that last couple days. I'm adding it to my blog because everyday she keeps reminding me how great it is. Definitely going to have to make this again. Hopefully the next time I will have a better photo to add to this post. 


1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup red bell pepper
1/2 cup diced sweet onion
1 pound ground beef
1/3 cup chunky salsa
1 (15 ounce) can of black beans rinsed
1 cup frozen corn thawed
1 (4 ounce) can of green chilis
1 (15 ounce) can of chopped tomatoes
1 cup Jasmin rice or if you use long grain add about 10 minutes on cooking time.
1 tablespoon taco seasoning
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
2 cups chicken broth
1 cup Mexican blend shredded cheese or cheddar
salt and pepper to taste

additional toppings: chopped scallions, cilantro and sour cream and salsa.


In a large pan heat oil and saute onions and peppers for about a minute. Add ground meat and brown. Once cooked through add salsa, black beans, corn, tomatoes, green chilis, taco seasoning, chili powder, and rice.

Pour in chicken broth and bring to light bowl. Reduce heat, cover and cook for 15-20 minutes until rice cooked. Add cheese and cover for 2-5 minutes until cheese is melted. You can add additional topping if desired.

Serve as is or over romain.


  1. Hi there! Stopping from A Bountiful Love and Tasty Kitchen. Pinned and shared this on Google plus :) It looks really yummy!

  2. Andrea, I cooked this recipe today and served it to my family! It is absolutely scrumptious! There's a whole lot involved as far as ingredients are concerned, but the cooking of it is so easy! A dollop of sour cream really makes this a treat! Will make again!
