Looking for a way to repurpose leftovers for lunch? These Lunchbox Burrito Bowls are easy to make and easy to customize!
The idea of a burrito bowl isn’t anything new. I happen to love them, especially when traveling. It’s a convenient way to eat well, while I’m on the go, or need a night in for work. So why not enjoy the same convenience at home?
One of the reasons I love to make my own burrito bowls at home is because I can prep ahead for nights when we need a quick and easy dinner. Simply cook your rice, wash the beans, shred the cheese and chop any additional toppings your family will enjoy. Just look at how easy they are to make!
The best part about making burrito bowls for dinner is that they make great leftovers for your lunchbox! Create a burrito bowl unique to your child’s taste, or even better, have them help. If you don’t have access to a microwave, you can layer your warmed ingredients inside a thermos.

Do you have a kid who doesn’t eat meat, and find it challenging to sneak in nutrition?
At MOMables, we are always coming up with fresh new ways to introduce healthy foods into lunches. We plan, you make, they eat.
We love these corn cakes because black beans have a lot of fiber and protein. They are filling, give lasting energy, and pack a lot of nutrition our kids need, such as vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
But, who wants to eat plain beans for lunch? These corn cakes taste great at room temperature and are very easy to pack for lunch!
I often top the corn cakes with sour cream, cheese, salsa, and diced chicken breast to create a delicious Mexican-inspired dish for lunch! You can, however, put all items on the side and let your child “dip.”
