Simple Homemade Burrito Bowl

This is a really simple concept: just cook some rice.  Meanwhile saute half an onion and 2 cloves of garlic in a tablespoon of oil.  Add a can of black beans, drained.  Season with chili powder and cumin.  Throw in any veggies you like (I used grape tomatoes, halved, and baby kale, because I had them on hand).  And make some simple guacamole by mashing 1 avocado with the juice of half a lime and a little bit of salt.  Serve the beans on top of rice.  Garnish with guacamole and your favorite salsa.  This makes 2 servings for me (and so does a Burrito Bowl from Chipotle).

  • Rice: $0.22
  • 1 tablespoon oil: $0.05
  • 1/2 onion: $0.17
  • 2 cloves garlic: $0.10
  • 1 can black beans: $0.79
  • spices: $0.05
  • tomatoes: $0.59
  • baby kale: $0.45
  • 1 avocado: $0.88
  • 1/2 lime: $0.09
  • salsa: $0.25


That’s probably about half the cost of eating at Chipotle.
