Chicken Burrito Bowl

My all time favorites, Burrito bowls are packed full of flavor, are easy to make and fill the tummy perfectly. Rice, black beans (rajma), salsa sauce, and choice of veggies or chicken make for the ultimate meal. Especially good for lazy bums like me who like to combine everything into a single bowl and eat it up with a spoon!
