I look forward to August each year because it means the beginning of farmers market time in Utah. I actually get giddy to go. I am the only one that gets that way?
The produce at the farmers market is always amazing and I love supporting local farmers. You can also find some new items to try that you may not see in your regular grocery store. My new find at this years market was white bell peppers!
Today, I am sharing a recipe that is perfect to incorporate items I found at my local farmers market – burrito bowls. They are basically burritos minus the tortilla. It all begins with some cooked rice and meat that is flavored with Old El Paso taco seasoning and enchilada sauce. The meat cooks in the slow cooker, so it can be cooking while you head to the farmers market! Then you top the burrito bowls with your favorite burrito items. This is where the fun can come in from your farmers market.
I managed to find some amazing corn, tomatoes, cilantro, green onions, and peppers to use in mine. I have included a list of items in the recipe you can include in your burrito bowls, but feel free to incorporate whatever you love and find at your local farmers market.
This recipe does make enough for 10 bowls. If that is too much for your family, you can freeze the meat and cooked rice for another meal on another night.
- 1 (2 lb) pork or beef roast
- 2 Tbsp. Old El Paso Taco Seasoning
- 2 (10 oz) cans Old El Paso Red Enchilada Sauce
- 10 cup cooked rice

- To serve burrito bowls, place 1 cup of rice on a plate. Top with some beans, followed by the shredded meat. Then top with desired toppings and serve. Makes 10 burrito bowls.
