Carnitas Burrito Bowls

  • Author: Kari
  • Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes
  • Yield: 6 servings 1x
  • Diet: Gluten Free



6 cups shredded romaine or green leaf lettuce

3 cups, or 1 recipe Cilantro Lime Rice

1/2 recipe Instant Pot Carnitas, or 61/2 cup servings Mexican meat of your choice

1 1/2 cups Pico de Gallo, or salsa of your choice

1 recipe The Best  Guacamole, (or 2 avocados, sliced/diced)

4 cups Fajita Veggies, from 1 recipe, (2/3 cup per serving)

Toppings of your choice:

Black beans, corn, sour cream, grated cheese etc.


Start by making each of the different recipes that make up this burrito bowl.

Serve everything separately family style so each person can choose how to build their bowl.

Or to assemble a burrito bowl, place the lettuce and Cilantro Lime Rice into a bowl.

Then top with the shredded Carnitas, Fajita Veggies, and your choice of black beans, corn, cheese, and sour cream.

Serve with Pico de Gallo and Best Guacamole.


The prep time listed below is about how long it takes to assemble a few burrito bowls. It takes me about 1 hour to cook the individual recipes listed here. Both the carnitas and the rice are made in the Instant Pot. So if you have 1 Instant Pot make the pork ahead of time, or steam the rice on the stove top.
