Best Burrito Bowl

This is my favourite burrito bowl. It’s not just a bowl of rice, beans, and veggies. Every element is packed with flavour. This recipe features cilantro and lime rice, and seasoned, roasted peppers and onions. To make this the BEST burrito bowl though, you CANNOT forget the cheese sauce!
