Mexican food is hands-down my favorite cuisine. I never tire of it, and neither does my family. We eat it at least once a week in the form of tacos, burritos, salad, enchilada soup. The list goes on and on. When we lived in California, we frequented a restaurant famous for their burrito bowls. But now that we live in Kansas, the restaurant is no longer just down the road. Desperate times call for desperate measures, so I re-created the burrito bowl experience at home. In fact, I think I prefer my version even more than the original.
My boys are not very picky, but my daughter is really difficult to feed. But when I make Mexican food, there is something on the table that everyone will eat. It might seem like a lot of effort to make all of the components, but it is well worth it if I can feed my family a healthy meal we all enjoy. Sometimes, I make everything from scratch, from the tomato and corn salsas to the guacamole. Other times, I buy it all. It just depends on how busy I am. If I am making this on a weekend, I always make extra and send leftovers in lunches the next week. It really makes life easy.
