Grilled Flank Steak Burrito Bowls

My dairy free version with hot sauce.

My hubby's with a little Colby Jack cheese and some fat free sour cream.
Can you tell I've been craving Mexican food lately? lol  These burrito bowls really hit the spot.  I love that they are so easy to customize.  I had mine dairy free, but my hubby enjoyed his with fat free sour cream.  My hubby is watching his carb intake, so his was light on the brown rice and beans....mine not so much ;)

Marinated Flank Steak Ingredients:
1 lb Flank Steak
1 (7 oz.) Can Diced Green Chilies
6 Roasted Cloves (peeled and crushed)
Juice & Zest of 2 Limes
Handful of Cilantro (roughly chopped)
2 Scallions (roughly chopped)
Pinch of Sea Salt
1/2 Tsp Ground Black Pepper


Brown Rice Ingredients:
1 Cup of Brown Rice
4 Roasted Garlic Cloves (minced)
1 Bay Leaf
Low Sodium Vegetable Stock

Check rice package for cooking instructions.  Follow package directions, but substitute vegetable stock for water.  When you add the rice add the garlic and bay leaf.  Follow rice package directions for cooking time.


Burrito Bowl Ingredients:
1 lb Grilled Flank Steak (diced into bite sized pieces)
Cooked Brown Rice
1 (14.5 oz.) Can Fat Free Refried Black Beans OR Whole Black Beans (drained and rinsed)
1 Avocado (diced)
2 Cups of Lettuce (roughly chopped)
Handful of Chopped Cilantro

Garnish with Fat Free Sour Cream

Layer cooked brown rice, beans, lettuce, grilled flank steak, shredded cheese, diced avocados, pico de gallo and sour cream.  Serve with a lime wedge.  Enjoy!

Notes:
- If you are using whole black beans I recommend placing them in a microwave safe bowl and adding 1 tsp ground cumin, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/4 tsp ground black pepper and a squeeze of lime juice.  Microwave on high for about a minute.
-If you are using refried beans I recommend placing them in a microwave safe bowl and add a squeeze of lime juice to them before heating them for about a minute on high.
