Veg Burrito Bowl - Chipotle Style

         Chipotle is a famous Mexican Grill known for its Burritos and Tacos. Just one year back it was introduced to me by my friend and now its my fav lunch spot :) I love veg burrito bowl a lot , Burrito bowl includes a lemon cilantro combo rice, pinto or black beans, salsa(mild or hot), roasted bell pepper n onions, lettuce -spinach Salad,cooked sweet corn,sour cream and guacamole all mixed and served as such or wrapped in a tortilla(burrito wrap) with or without cheese.This veg burrito bowl/wrap, for non-veg you can prefer roasted chicken/beef/pork. I never tasted the later one and always love the VEG. I was planning to post this in my blog for long time but everytime i lack one or the other ingredients. And now the time came, recently i happen to know about the site "The Saji" and its blogoversary giveaway. The Saji, wonderful space loaded with all delightful recipes and the most popular "50 from 50 in 50 " ie. she had posted 50 recipes from 50 countries in just 50 days !! How smart!! To participate in her giveaway one should try any one recipe from the 50 recipes and post it in blog within Nov 14. I tried two from the 50 and bookmarked some to try later. As to participate in her giveaway i pick this Burrito bowl - Mexico recipe and altered slightly to my taste and the recipe as follows..
