Frugal Family Fancy Burrito Bowl

I love making "Bowl" meals. Lots of restaurants now carry them and they are so easy to prepare. You just assemble everything into a bowl and call it fancy.  Who doesn't love that!

This bowl is simply rice, (which was leftover) a can a refried beans, a package of "southwest" corn from the freezer (that included black beans and peppers, a little bit of shredded cheese and some salsa. 

If you had more ingredients on hand, you could sure add them. These would be great with olives, avocado, sour cream, pico de gallo, sauteed peppers and onions - you could pretty much add whatever sounded good to you. 

We needed a quick, simple dinner and I had rice leftover in the fridge, so this is what we ended up it. And it was really super good and cost just pennies. 


4 cups cooked rice
1 can refried beans
1 package frozen corn and bean mix
2 cups shredded cheese
2 cups salsa


I heat all the ingredients separately in the microwave.  Once I have the rice, beans and corn all heated up, I assemble each bowl and then top with cheese and salsa.   Done!
