Those of you , who follow this space or have consulted me ,know that I am not a fan of elaborate cooking. But at the same time I am always in search of these easy meal options which are healthy & balanced., this adds variety to everyday cooking .That brings us to my #TexMexBurritoBowl done at home , easier , healthier & tastier .
Plus , it’s completely customizable to add in your favorite protein or if you are like me ,keep it vegetarian, there are plenty of goodies to go around.
Here’s the recipe
✔️Bed of rice 🍚 ( quinoa can also be used ) rice is sautéed with 3 cloves of grated garlic , ginger & corn .
✔️Baked beans sautéed in tomato sauce ( I had these leftover from last night ) , other options could be grilled chicken strips , salmons fillets , black eye beans in tomato sauce.
✔️A Guacamole with texture ( I just used fork to mix all the ingredients, didn’t grind it to smooth.). This will stay in my fridge for tomorrow’s breakfast spread on sandwiches .
✔️Sprout salad is there everyday at our home , these are boiled sprouts with chopped cucumber , onion , tomato 🍅 dash of black pepper with salt , lemon ,sugar ( very little ).
Whipped creamy yoghurt with sugar , black pepper & oregano .
Enchilada sauce & those Corn Taco is the actual preparation in this recipe
✔️✔️My super easy version for enchilada sauce

Toss baked beans or boiled rajma in this sauce .
✔️✔️corn taco are made from scratch
Kneaded maize flour in to dough with a pinch of salt , roll out like chapati & bake it for 5 min. on preheated oven for 5- 8 min .
