Chipotle inspired burrito bowl

I love this recipe because you can do much more with it, and it is so filling and nourishing. This recipe burst with a flavor that complements the natural taste of the ingredients used in this recipe. This recipe is also vegan, vegetarian, plant-based, and pescatarian-friendly.


Cauliflower rice

  • Cauliflower rice (or whole cauliflower that you can rice yourself)

  • 1/2 the juice of a lime

  • The zest of one lime

  • salt to taste

  • a handful of chopped cilantro


  • One avocado

  • Juice of 1 lime

  • One tablespoon of chopped cilantro

  • finely diced red onion (you can add as much or as little as you want)

  • 1/2 a teaspoon of fresh garlic

Rest of the ingredients

  • One can of sweet corn

  • Two medium tomatoes diced

  • 1 Fresh jalapeño

  • 1 cup of black or red kidney beans

  • finely diced red onion

  • smoked paprika

  • chipotle spice or paste

  • coconut oil for cooking

I used the below chipotle and adobo paste for this recipes which i got from wellness warehouse. Its so strange how something like chipotle spice is not readily available on shelfs here in South Africa.


Cauliflower rice

  1. Cook the cauliflower according to the pack instructions

  2. Add salt and black pepper to taste once the cauliflower rice is cooked

  3. Add the zest and lime juice and cook for another few minutes

  4. Add the chopped cilantro & stir fry for 3 minutes, then remove the pan from the stove

  5. Set aside the cauliflower rice until we are ready to build our bowl.


  1. Add all the ingredients to one bowl and mash it up. It's that simple.

Rest of the bowl

  1. Prepare the sweet corn by stir-frying it and adding the smoked paprika and chipotle paste. Mix it all well and remove it from the stove.

  2. Chop up the tomatoes into dice and add the chopped-up jalapeño, salt, and red onions to it. Then you are done.

  3. If you are not using canned beans, prepare your beans and season with salt.

  4. Now it's time to assemble the bowl. First, add the cauliflower rice as the base, then the beans, then the tomato salsa, top everything off with guacamole. Enjoy!
