Fiesta Bowls

Because everyday should be a fiesta, right? You may be catching on to a trend here. I have a thing for creating recipes that are in bowls. Why? Well, they are simple to make, easy to sub ingredients, can be quickly personalized, and a great way to create flavor combinations. I was day-dreaming about Mexican food last week (per usual) when I was walking our pup, Gracie, and somehow my imagination created this recipe.

Grab the chips and margs because this is about to become a staple in your household, too.
