With our busy lifestyles, it can be difficult to plan and execute complex, homemade meals on a daily basis. But, that doesn’t mean you have to give up and grab something from the nearest drive-through or delivery service! Our recipe developer, Rachel, whipped together this simple and healthy burrito bowl using hearty Randall Beans white beans and black beans that can be made in under 20 minutes!

Quick can be healthy and fresh if you get creative! With summer wrapping up, kids going back to school and college kids stretching their wings and going off on their own, now is the time of year for simple recipes. This burrito bowl is a recipe that can be something to take on the go, an easy meal the whole family can enjoy at home or something an inexperienced chef can make without tons of prep work.

But, like we said, this recipe isn’t only easy but healthy too. Everyone loves a burrito stuffed with delicious ingredients. However, cutting out the tortilla and serving ingredients over rice saves on carbs and makes it so everyone can easily add their own favorite toppings!

This recipe is extraordinarily customizable. The recipe below calls for chicken (which is de-lish), but if you are in the mood for pork, beef or steak, it can be easily swapped out. Or, if you’re cooking vegetarian, you can top it off with extra beans or some sauteed veggies. Yum! We’ve also called for the rice as jasmine cilantro-lime rice, but you can use any type of rice you like.

If you’re in a time crunch, you can even use microwaveable rice packets for an easier recipe! Makes 4 to 6 bowls worth. Be sure to stock up on a couple jars of Randall Beans white beans and black beans to keep in your pantry so you can make this burrito bowl any night of the week you need a quick and easy dinner.
