    Even though these are a full meal all on their own, it doesn’t hurt to serve with a couple other snacks (and drinks!) for a family dinner.

    Meal Prep and Storage Tips

    • Prepare the vegan burrito bowls in advance by making the rice, beans, vegan carnitas, fajita veggies, salsa, corn salad, and vegan sour cream.
      • Store them separately until you’re ready to heat and serve.
    • You can also meal prep individual bowls:
      • Portion out all of the warm fillings in a microwave safe container.
      • Place the toppings in another one.
      • When ready to serve, warm it up and throw on the toppings!
    • Keep leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-5 days.
    • Cooked rice and beans can be frozen in a freezer safe airtight container for up to 3 months.
