An Easy, One-Pan Burrito Bowl Recipe
Do you ever use Pinterest for recipes? I know lots of people who do, but I browse Pinterest mainly for ... clothes. And other pretty things. Definitely not food. I was busy pinning for one of the companies I freelance for the other day, when I came across this ingenious one-pan burrito bowl recipe from the blog, No. 2 Pencil.
I made it tonight and ... it was surprisingly good! I have such little confidence in my cooking abilities, but always end up surprising myself when I actually follow a recipe and make something that tastes good. Not restaurant quality, mind you, but just ... tasty.
This is such an easy recipe and you'll have a much easier time sourcing the ingredients if you're in the US, rather than here (for example, I couldn't find canned black beans for my online Tesco delivery order, but I've been told that they're available at my local Tesco - I know you can prepare them, but it takes time, which is something I don't have much of!).
I made a few tweaks that I thought I'd share with you in case you decide to make this one evening too: I substituted black beans with red kidney beans instead (since I happened to have some in the cupboard) and I absolutely love fresh coriander in my Mexican-inspired food, so I chopped up a handful and dropped it in at the end.
I loved this recipe and will definitely try it again! What's your favorite go-to recipe for a weeknight or for when you're feeling tired?
