Making The Sexiest Of Mexican Bowls

P4040232P4040228

It’s come to my attention (whilst filming a what I eat in a week video – it’ll be up Sunday so y’know, you could subscribe over here if that’s your kinda thing, I’m litz subscribed to like two people so I totally get if you’re like nah ta, hun), that about 50% of my weekly dinners are based around Mexican food.

I’m not even slightly sorry because what in this sweet, sweet world is better than hot sauce or guacamole?

Aside from like a McDonald’s double cheeseburger, maybe.

Anyway, one meal we’re eating at least once a week at the moment is the classic Mexican bowl. The let’s just throw everything that needs eating in the fridge into a bowl and then add rice and hot sauce and call it a Mexican bowl.

It’s seriously bae. And can be pretty healthy if you want it to be (basically just don’t tip an entire wagon of sour cream on it – although if you’re on your period, you’re sad, stressed or it’s a Monday or a Tuesday or the weekend then you absolutely should because yolo).

I like to use a cereal bowl rather than a shallow pasta bowl because it means you can layer up and kind of forage around and you never know what you’re getting in your next mouthful. It makes dinner time extra fun, although not *quite* as fun as when you have wine.

METHOD

  1. I tend to cut up a medium-sized sweet potato per person, leave the skin on, cut into chunks and microwave for a few minutes before sticking under the grill and turning every few minutes.
  2. Whilst they’re cooking, I put whatever veg needs eating and olive oil in a pan and saute, and tip my beans into a saucepan to heat through.
  3. At the moment I tend to do veggie bowls, but here’s where I’d also saute or grill any meat or fish, obvs.
  4. Then I grate some cheese and get crushing some avocado with pepper and lime because that combo is <3
  5. I microwave my rice and then get layering it all in a bowl.
  6. And of course, I finish off with basically half a bottle of Frank’s Hot Sauce because it is my soul mate.

 

Now I’m hungry and I’m going to have to go rummaging about in the fridge to find something, FFS.

Do you guys have any Mexican bowl secret ingredients I need to add to my Tesco order plz?
