“We like to get burrito bowls from Chipotle, but aren't thrilled with paying for it several times a week. This isn't anything I'd claim as a "clone", but is "inspired" by Chipotle/QDoba's burrito bowls. It's tasty, easy and filling. As a bonus, it's pretty good without any meat, making it a really viable option to serve a mixed group of vegetarian/carnivores for a party.”
