With hot summer days upon us, we are all looking for something light and fresh to chow down on. 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 incorporate our Classic Chicken Nuremberger Sausages, is 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.

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.
