Burrito salad recipe: The perfect throw-together meal

The burrito salad is the perfect solution for those nights when you can’t bring yourself to order takeout sushi one more time, but you have no intention of doing anything in the kitchen that involves a utensil more sophisticated than a fork. Do you enjoy the exotic flavours of Mexican food? Is your life in disarray? Have a burrito salad!

You’ll need:

  • One can black beans
  • Lettuce, shredded
  • Tomatoes, diced
  • Avocado, diced
  • Cheddar cheese, grated
  • Salsa
  • Sour cream
  • Shredded chicken (this would be an excellent addition, but who has time for that kind of luxury!?)

What now?

  • Get a big salad bowl and add shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, diced avocado, and black beans (amounts are entirely based on how many people you are feeding, so just eyeball it—I believe in you)
  • Grate desired amount of cheese on top of salad
  • Add a spoonful or two of salsa, and one or two of sour cream (again, using your powers of salad judgment)
  • Mix it all up, and that’s a burrito salad! You will be amazed at how delish it is for how insanely easy it is to make. Promise

    Okay, being the type of person that does not cook and hates salads, you’ve actually sold me on this idea! Sounds super simple and yummy. Thanks for recipe (keeping this one tucked away for a lonely night in).
