Yield: 1

10 Minute Burrito Bowls


  • 1/2 Cup Cooked Brown Rice, try microwavable bags
  • 1/4 Cup Black Beans, Kidney Beans, or Pinto Beans, drain and rinse
  • 3 Oz. Protein, cooked (Chicken, Turkey, or Scrambled Eggs)
  • Toppings:
  • 1/4 Cup Tomatoes, diced
  • 1/4 Cup Corn
  • Shredded Lettuce
  • 1/4 Avocado, sliced
  • 2 Tbsp. Salsa (look for lower sodium salsa, under 140mg)
  • 2 Tbsp. Shredded Cheddar Cheese


  1. Prepare the brown rice according to package instructions.
  2. In a microwave safe bowl, combine rice, beans, and your choice of protein. Microwave on high for 30-60 seconds, or until heated through.
  3. Add your vegetables, salsa, and shredded cheese on top of the beans and rice.


Dietitian's Tips: Purchase rotisserie chicken earlier in the week and use the leftovers to make this burrito bowl even easier! Purchase reduced sodium or no-salt-added canned beans and vegetables. Drain and rinse for 2 minutes to reduce the sodium up to 40%.
