What is a Burrito Bowl?

A burrito bowl is essentially the contents of a burrito — meat, beans, salsa, cheese and rice — emptied into a bowl instead of being wrapped up in a tortilla. A burrito bowl is perfect for when you want to enjoy all the delicious flavors of a burrito in a proper sit-down meal, instead of on-the-go.

Cooking Beef Strips

Beef strips are a very tender cut of meat that are usually about 1 cm thick, meaning that they cook quickly. In terms of cooking methods, beef strips are perfect for stir-frying so you can try using them in a recipe like this Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry.

Pinto Beans and Black Beans

Whether you use pinto beans or black beans in this recipe very much depends on your preference. The two varieties vary in appearance, with black beans having a smaller oval shape and pinto beans being larger with a speckled caramel color.

In terms of flavor, black beans have more of a dense, rich taste. They’re great in salads, like this Black Beans and Rice Mango Salad. Pinto beans, on the other hand, have a lighter, creamier flavor meaning that they can go in soups like this Southwest Pinto Beans and Rice Soup.

What is Monterey Jack Cheese?

Monterey Jack is an American semi-hard cheese known for its mild flavor and subtle sweetness. Although Monterey Jack can be enjoyed by itself, it also tastes great when used in recipes like this one, or this Spicy Rice, Bean and Cheese Skillet. Monterey Jack cheese also goes well with our Mexican Rice Recipe.
