Jump on the Burrito Bowl Train with This Quick and Easy Recipe

With hot summer days upon us, we are all looking for something light and fresh to chow down on especially during the cricket events that we’re hosting. You don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen, that’s for sure but the snacks you feed your guests need to be filling, delicious & easy!

Something that has become increasingly popular in recent years is a burrito bowl. Essentially it is a burrito without the tortilla wrap. All of the burrito fillings are placed in a bowl and served as is.

Without heavy carbs or fats, a burrito bowl is not only healthy but can also be really light and fresh. The possibilities with a burrito bowl are endless. Our sausage burrito bowl which incorporates our Classic Chicken Nuremberger Sausages are a simple, quick and tasty interpretation that is guaranteed to fill and delight you. 

Where Did the Burrito Bowl Come From?

Literally translated, burrito means “little donkey”. Thankfully burritos have nothing to do with donkeys but no one knows how or who came up with the name. However, everyone can agree that they are delicious. 

It was Chipotle Mexican Grill that conceptualised the burrito bowl and marketed it as a healthy burrito alternative. You can pretty much add anything to a burrito bowl while still trying to maintain classic Mexican flavours. 

Some choices include rice, beans, corn, any kind of meat and salsa. No matter what you choose to add to your burrito bowl, it’s almost always guaranteed to be both nutritious and delicious. 

Licious Classic Chicken Nuremberger

For this dish, we have paired our Classic Chicken Nuremberger Sausage which is ready-to-cook, with fresh Mexican flavours like corn, cheese, tomato, onion and coriander. This dish is so easy to put together and won’t take more than 10 – 15 minutes. It’s also a really hearty and filling meal which is great for lunch or dinner too; guaranteed to keep you satisfied for hours.

Whether you choose to grill or boil them, our Classic Chicken Nuremberger sausages only take 5 minutes to prepare. They are flavoured with fresh herbs and spices such as sage, marjoram, garlic and mustard. These sausages are versatile and would work just as well in sandwiches and hot dogs too. Our Nurembergers are also free of artificial flavour enhancers. What you get is, an all-natural and protein-packed delicious sausage.
