Burrito Bowls

It's been a beautiful warm day here, the sun has been shining, the breeze has been cool and to top it off, Mr B and I have had the day off work. 

Mr B and I were up early today to meet some of our friends for breakfast. Not only was it one of their birthday's, but it was also the last time we will see them for a month as they are heading off on a big road trip this week to spend a month in Sydney with family. We had a really lovely morning and it was so good to catch up with them, but we sure are going to miss them while they are away! After breakfast Mr B and I came home and were surprised that we had been up, out for breakfast and home all before we would normally even wake up on our day off! 

Mr B spent the rest of the day mowing our property and I did some baking, went to the optometrist (how hard is it to pick a new pair of frames for glasses - there is just too much choice!!), did some shopping and came home. Something about the warm weather or maybe it's everything we have got done today, but either way I'm exhausted and want something easy for tea. I think these Burrito Bowls are perfect 'Friday Night' meals and perfect Summer Night meals too! 

Burrito Bowls - Serves 2

2 Tortillas
200g beef mince
400g can of red kidney beans
1 pkt burrito seasoning
2 tomatoes diced
1/3 cup corn kernels (2 small tins or 1/2 400g tin)
1 avocado, peeled and sliced
2-3 lettuce leaves. shredded
Salsa, Sour Cream and Grated Cheese to serve

Pre-heat oven to 110C.

Place 2 empty and clean glass jars on a baking tray with the lids off. Lay a tortilla over the top of each jar allowing the edges to hang down. Bake for 15 mins or until crisp.

Place mince in a lightly greased fry pan over medium heat and cook until browned. Add the beans, burrito seasoning and 2-3 tbspns of salsa. Cook for 5-7 mins.

To assemble the bowls, place a tortilla bowl on a plate. Add the mince mixture, tomato, corn, lettuce and avocado in alternating sections. Top with salsa, sour cream and grated cheese.

These were absolutely delicious. And I mean you could just do the beans with no mince for a vegetarian version, you could add chicken instead of mince, you could do whatever you want, but whatever you do I definitely recommend you try this!
