It’s no secret that I love burrito bowls (which you’ve no doubt realized if you follow me on IG). Mostly because they’re fast to make, and allow me to use up whatever is lingering around in the fridge. But without the right combo of flavors they can be somewhat bland, especially if you’re not used…
DIY Burrito Bowls
Those who know me, know that burrito bowls make a regular rotation in my kitchen. Mostly because they are so easy to prepare and are also great when meal prepping for the week ahead. You can use and combo of toppings but the recipes below are perhaps my favorite rendering.
Chipotle (Blender) Salsa
As iconic as chips and guacamole are for a night of drinks with friends, chips and salsa are a close second. They’re budget friendly and a snap to prepare. This recipe is so simple it barely requires an introduction or post, but let me tell you this. This beats any jarred salsa hands down. Its…

If you haven’t tried their sofritas burrito or burrito bowl, I highly recommend it! Unfortunately there are no Chipotle’s restaurants in the Montreal area, and the closest is about an hour away.
Creamy Mexican Corn Dip
