Burrito Bowl

I have been in the mood for Mexican food lately and decided a nice burrito bowl would be a healthy way to enjoy my favorite flavors. The best part is its easy to put together.

If you follow Trim Healthy Mama this would be an E meal. If you use 1/2 cup rice and 1/4 cup beans or 3/4 cup rice and just a few beans to keep it under the 45 carb count. If you wanted to you could also put the filling into a low carb tortilla if you aren't in the mood for a bowl.
