I love big ole burritos stuffed with everything. Sometimes I take the time to make a big batch of them that will last us for several days. And sometimes I wrap them up to freeze for an easy meal later on. I’ve been wanting to try a burrito bowl which is so popular these days. I must admit it is much easier to just layer a bowl with my favorite meat and toppings but I missed the tortilla so I toasted one to have on the side. This is literally a bowl of my favorite things starting with grilled steak and chicken that is spicy and flavorful. More goodness comes with a scoop of fresh guacamole, salsa verde, roasted corn salsa, seasoned black beans, sour cream, Oaxaca cheese and cilantro lime rice. Most everything was made from scratch but there are short cuts you can take to make the prep a little easier. There is a visual appeal of a burrito bowl that you don’t get with a traditional burrito that is smashed together once you roll it up. So the question is, do you prefer steak or chicken or both?

I discovered corn salsa at Chipotle Mexican Grill. For those who have a Chipotle’s in your neighborhood, you know how good their burritos and tacos are. You build your own burritos or tacos with your choice of meat, beans, rice, and salsa. The corn salsa adds something that I have tried to recreate many times and have finally found the ingredients that I think come as close to Chipotle’s as possible. The secret is in the corn. There’s a hint of sweetness that I’ve found comes from roasted corn. Grilling brings out the sugars in the corn that gives it that special taste. Try this corn salsa on any burrito, taco or enchilada and it will soon become a favorite topper.

Flank Steak on the grill is oh so delicious. Whether you make a rub or a marinade, it always tastes good and is very easy to make. I happen to love Steak Fajitas with Monterey Jack cheese, roasted corn salsa, guacamole, and grilled onions & red pepper, however you can use whatever you like for toppings.
