Any Chipotle restaurant fans out there? Sadly, I don’t have one near me these days, but I try to hit one up as often as I can when I travel to other cities. Which happens to be a lot lately. Luckily, it’s easy to skip Chipotle and make your burrito bowl right at home.

You can have your burrito bowl and eat it too! That’s because this dish is brimming with an abundance of healthy ingredients including black beans, sweet potato, and ground turkey. And if you really want to go that extra step and make these even healthier, you can use quinoa in place of the rice.
