The burrito bowl era is finally maturing. Instead of white rice and toppings of varying degrees of Mexican authenticity, healthy eaters are wising up to the many delicious ways we can get our burrito fix without the empty calories of a giant flour tortilla.

One great example: our Black Bean Quinoa Salad with Chipotle Steak. Instead of white rice, we're building this bowl on a bed of fluffy quinoa. To get the full heat kick, rub lean sirloin with a warm and toasty spice combo that includes chipotle chile powder. Add protein and bulk to your dinner with hearty black beans, and finally, cool things down with slices of creamy avocado and a salty sprinkle of feta.
