We all agree that takeout burrito bowls are downright delicious. But what’s even better (for your taste buds and wallet) is making them at home. Put leftover roasted chicken to good use and open the can of black beans that’s been sitting in your cabinet forever. Use brown rice instead of white, or really mix things up and try quinoa or barley as a base. Feel free to toss in any extra veggies you have lying around and top with a dollop of creamy Greek yogurt.
