Pressure Cooker Pork Carnitas Burrito Bowls
A burrito served in a bowl over rice without the tortilla and topped with your favorite burrito toppings. A fun way to change up dinner.
Last week when I posted my Pork Carnitas Taco recipe, I mentioned that the recipe made enough for two meals – a two-fer. This is the second way I served the pork carnitas. It’s a pressure cooker version of the Food Network Burrito Bowl.
Making Pork Carnitas Burrito Bowls in an Instant Pot
You don’t need a pressure cooker to make this recipe, but so many of the elements in this meal can be made faster and better tasting in the pressure cooker. I used my 3-Minute Pressure Cooker White Rice recipe, the Pork Carnitas Pressure Cooker recipe, and if you’re ambitious, you could also make Pressure Cooked Black Beans.
We loved these burrito bowls even more than the tacos. This meal will definitely be on the menu again soon.
Pork Carnitas Burrito Bowls
- 3 cups cooked white rice
- 2 cups pork carnitas
- 2 cups (or 1 14 oz can) black beans
- 1 (10 ounce Rotel) can mild diced tomatoes & green chilies, undrained
- 1 clove garlic, chopped
- 1/4 yellow onion, chopped
- 1/2 cup cilantro leaves, optional
- juice of 1 lime
- salt to taste
- Shredded Cheddar Cheese
- Sour cream
- Green onions, chopped
- Avocado, diced
- Tomatoes, diced
- Cilantro, chopped
- Lime Wedges
- Tortilla Chips
Prepare salsa: Place tomatoes, garlic, onion, cilantro, and lime juice in the food processor. Pulse until well combine and your desired consistency. Add salt to taste.
Divide the rice evenly among individual serving bowls. Top with the black beans and a spoon full of salsa. Add warm carnitas and top with additional salsa.
Serve the toppings on the side and let everyone create their burrito bowl just the way they want it.
Yes once again, a simple and delicious recipe. If you like Qdoba Mexican Grill you can definitely make your own bowl at home. I made the rice while I seared the meat in the pan , warmed a can of black beans and then served with all the fixings. My husband loved it. Thanks
I love these recipes , I just got my second pressure cooker ( electronic ) it is so much easier to use. Set it and forget it . My hubby loves burritos and I can’t wait to serve this recipe up.~ Thanks
Thanks Kay – it’s nice to “meet” another electric pressure cooker fan. Please come back and let me know how you like it.
This look amazing!! Thanks so much for sharing such a delicious spin to the burrito/taco. Hugs!
Oh wow, this recipe really intrigues me. Not only is it visually beautiful, it has some of my most favorite flavors all in one place. And serving it all in a bowl over rice…brilliant!
This sounds so good! I just got a new pressure cooker and can finally retire my old one 😉 Can’t wait to try this!
Pork Carnitas are a favorite in my house, I can’t wait to try these!
Looks so good.
Yum!! Love these bowls instead of tacos or burritos!
All about the bowl, and carnitas are so good. Loving this.
This looks soooo good! My family would love them. And I need to get a pressure cooker. I don’t have one and am a little afraid to use one…..but this might have just sold me. Thanks for a delicious recipe!
