HEALTHY(ISH) BURRITO BOWLS

HEALTHY(ISH) BURRITO BOWLS

But sometimes, we go sans shell. These bowls are perfect to tuck into while binge watching Scandal or being forced into watching basketball. You can do black beans instead of chickpeas if you're feeling that (but we all know I love a good roasted chickpea).

The longer you cook those little guys, the crunchier and crispier they'll be. So plan a little ahead if you want prime crunchiness!
