In a perfect world I’d go to Chipotle for lunch every damned day. But that set me back like $60 bucks a week, and let’s not even discuss my iced coffee habit. When it comes to lunches, I find it especially important to make something filling so I won’t run upstairs to our office snack bar or down the street for some fried crap (I love fried crap, tho). I’m a b i g fan of throwing food in a bowl to make a delicious lunch. I’ve made salad bowls, burrito bowls, protein bowls, yogurt bowls, you name it. If you follow my blog you’ve probably seen my recipe for shrimp burrito bowls. This here recipe is a Chipotle copycat for delicious and filling burrito bowls, and the guac isn’t extra LOL. No shade though, Chipot-bae, I’ll be back real soon. Let’s eat!



  • 1 cup jasmine rice
  • 1 cup broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1 bunch cilantro
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 4 oz tofu
  • ½ small sweet onion
  • Adobo
  • Sazon
  • Black pepper
  • Sea salt
  • Paprika
  • Cayenne (optional)
  • Chopped green onion (optional)
  • Oil


  1. Bring water, broth, and jasmine rice to a boil in a small pot.
  2. Once rice begins to boil, bring it down to a simmer and cover, stirring occasionally so rice doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pot.
  3. When it’s nice and fluffy, sprinkle with sea salt, lime juice, and a handful of chopped cilantro
  4. In a large saute pan, heat up 2-3 tablespoons of oil (the avocado oil from Costco is my favorite at the moment) on medium high
  5. Once the oil is runny, throw in the cubed tofu and sliced onion
  6. In the pan, season with Adobo, Sazon, paprika, and black pepper and cayenne (optional)
  7. Saute for about 15 minutes, until onions are soft and everything becomes a burnt orange-light brown
  8. In a collander, drain the can of black beans. Draining is important or they’ll turn everything on your plate purple.
  9. Season the beans with Adobo and anything else you’d like. Set aside in a bowl
  10. In a small bowl, mash up one avocado
  11. Combine the avocado with finely diced onions, a handful of chopped cilantro, salt, pepper, garlic, and lime to make the best guacamole eva. Set aside
  12. When everything is finally prepared, put together your bowl. Rice, tofu, beans, guacamole, and sprinkle with chopped green onion or any hot sauce you’d like.

Serves: 2.

Prep and cook time: about 30 minutes.
