Beat the Heat With a Microwave #FastFreshFilling Copycat Burrito Bowl

Copycat Burrito Bowl

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group®, Birds Eye®, and Tyson® but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #FastFreshFilling

We are a busy family and the warm days of summer mean we’d much rather be outside playing and having fun versus sitting inside being bumps on a log. Even if we don’t pack our days full of activities and just go with the flow, by the time dinner time rolls around, I absolutely hate standing in front of the cooktop stirring a hot pot. It’s summer – I’ve already been outside soaking up the sun and getting hot and sweaty from playing!

Our family enjoys “summer meals” – meals that are quick, that are easy, and that don’t heat up our kitchen. We went for quite a while without central air conditioning, so it primed us well for this type of mealtime. Now that we have a/c, I’d prefer to not have a hot kitchen and the rest of the house cool, so I still employ the “summer meals” frequently.

One of our family favorites is what we call “taco bowls”, but if you know popular food chains, you’ll be calling this a “burrito bowl”. It’s 100% customizable, but I keep ours as quick and simple as possible.

Let’s take a look at how I can take these easy ingredients from Tyson and Bird’s Eye and create a family-friendly, summer-friendly, no-stress meal that’s ready in minutes!
