Fiesta Bowl

If I’m being totally honest, I just made up the name for this recipe on the spot. But it’s basically a party of deliciousness in your mouth, so I’m fine with it. I was inspired to create this recipe from an amazing dish I am totally obsessed with at Pulp Lifestyle Kitchen. I kept dreaming about their Sano bowl after I first had it and knew I had to figure out how to make it for myself. This recipe is an amazing meal prep recipe to make at the beginning of the week since it makes so much food! The toppings are also super easy to switch up so the flavor never gets old! The recipe below is the quantity I use to make my initial big batch, then it will make several days of leftovers to get me through the week!
