Black Bean Quinoa Burrito Bowl

One of my favorite go to dinners?  Burrito bowls!  They are easy to make if you have cooked or canned beans and salsa on hand, are packed with protein and very healthy!  My favorite way to make them is with quinoa instead of rice for more protein.  Because when you add beans to that it is enough to satisfy you and you will not miss the meat at all. You can find delicious salsa in our deli department to make it even easier to get these on the table fast.  It takes less than 30 minutes to make these, and I guarantee once you try them you will be making them again!
