Refried Bean and Guacamole Burrito Bowl

A delicious deconstructed vegetarian burrito in a bowl. You won't go hungry with this bowl. Protein and fiber-full, with tons of Mexican flavours. A great meatless Monday dish!

Servings 2 bowls


  • 1/2 brown rice cooked
  • 1/2 cup refried beans
  • 1 cup corn
  • 1 cup cheese (cheddar or marble) grated
  • 1/2 cup tomato diced
  • cilantro for garnish

For the guacamole:

  • 1 ripe avocado diced
  • 1 tbsp red onion
  • 1 tbsp cilantro finely chopped
  • 1 tsp lime about 1/4 lime
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  1. Cook brown rice according to directions on the package. (Usually about 45 minutes)

  2. Heat the refried beans in either the microwave or in a small saucepan on the stove. In two bowls, divide all the ingredients evenly. Add the rice first, then top with tomatoes, corn, cheese, guacamole and the refried beans.

For the guacamole:

  1. Cut the avocado in half. Remove the pit. Peel the skin off the avocado, and place flat side down on a cutting board. Dice the avocado and add it to a bowl, along with the red onion, lime juice, cilantro and salt. Lightly mash, until all the ingredients are mixed. You can have it smooth or as chunky as you'd like. Taste to adjust seasonings to personal preference (salt and lime juice).

Recipe Notes

Get creative with these bowls! Think about what you'd put in a burrito if you were eating out. You could add sour cream, salsa, sweet potato and jalapenos.

If you can't find refried beans, black beans would be a great substitute.
