What ingredients can I add to the healthy Burrito Bowl?
For the salsa - I used my very own recipe. Feel free to use the canned salsa – any salsa works well with this burrito bowl!
Black beans - you can make them from scratch at home or use organic non-GMO black beans.
Rice - you can use any rice long grain or small.do not use sticky rice. You will be adding uncooked rice to the instant pot.Make sure you rinse the rice several times to remove the starch.
For the dressing skip the sour cream and try our 5-minute Avocado Cilantro Dressing, you will never go back to sour cream.
Vegetables - Add as many or as little veggies.
