Melissa likes to garnish the burrito bowls with fresh tomatoes, green onions, sour cream, and avocados, or any combination of those tasty toppings.

"This also makes a delicious filling for burritos and freezes well. I’m going to double my next batch and use the extra to make freezer burritos," she says.
