This Easy Vegan Mexican Burrito Bowl has the flavors mixed of a burrito and taco. It is vegan, dairy-free, oil-free, gluten-free and made with corn tortillas, black beans, rice, salsa and homemade vegan queso cheese sauce.
First, make your cheese sauce by following the directions here.
Next, prepare your rice. Add the water, rice and salt to a small pot and stir and bring to a boil. Once boiling, cover and turn to simmer for 25 minutes or until all the water has evaporated from the bottom. Return the lid and let sit for 5 minutes and then fluff with a fork.
While the rice is cooking, make your tortilla chips, if making them. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and line 2 sheet pans with parchment paper. Cut your tortillas into 4ths. Spread them out evenly and bake for 8-10 mins or until the edges are turning very golden brown, to ensure they get extra crispy. Watch closely towards the end so they don't burn. Let cool while you finish the next steps.
Meanwhile, prepare your beans. Add your beans, cumin, salsa and salt to a small pot or bowl and heat either in the microwave or over the stove.
Heat your corn up either over the stove or in the microwave.
Assemble your bowls any way you like. I placed some rice on the bottom, then layered with beans, corn, salsa (or enchilada sauce if using) and then decorated the edges with the chips and sprinkled some shredded lettuce on top. Drizzle some extra salsa on and LOTS of cheese sauce. Break it all up and devour! This makes a lot, so you will have plenty for leftovers and lunches.
