Chorizo Burrito Bowls

I'm always on the hunt for fast and filling meals. Chicken sausage makes an awesome one-dish dinner by itself or served with brown rice in a burrito. —Elisabeth Larsen, Pleasant Grove, Utah

    Very good. I had no idea ready to serve rice existed. I think I prefer to cook my rice but if you are in a pinch it is nice to know you can get a good meal on the table easily.

    Made a few changes to make less calories: used turkey sausage, black rice (half amount)

    Quick bowl to put together. I couldn't find either sausage types specified so I used green chile chicken sausages. I also omitted the corn. The recipe didn't specify whether to cook the rice or not but I did follow the package directions to cook.
