HEALTHY MEXI BOWLS
Every time I snap or story these simple little dishes I get asked heaps for the recipes. This is nothing fancy or ground breaking but it is healthy, fresh, quick and tastes damn good!
These are Gluten Free and Lactose Free by using either no cheese or lactose free cheese (I like the "Lidells" brand which is available in Coles and Woolworths). The best thing about this type of dish is you add as many veggies as you wish and replace things like the rice with sweet potato or quinoa.
I am not the greatest cook so I like to keep everything simple!
