Halloween Happenings: South of the Border Style


Happy Halloween, my friends! With Hurricane Sandy this week, Halloween has seemed to be pushed to the wayside (and understandably so). It’s not a favorite holiday of mine, but this year, I’m super excited for one reason:

$2 boorito day at Chipotle! If you come in dressed in a costume between 4 p.m. and close, you can get a $2 salad, burrito, or taco. Can’t beat that! The only problem with this excitement is that I don’t currently have a costume. Any suggestions for a last minute slacker who needs something in the name of a $2 burrito bowl?

I don’t know what it is, but I’ve been craving some spicy, south-of-the-border food all week! When I was roaming food blogs yesterday, I came across this Chipotle-imitation burrito bowl recipe from Iowa Girl Eats and I instantly knew what I was having for dinner. Delicious! The best part was the fresh pico de gallo I whipped up to top it off…

Can’t beat a recipe with four ingredients that takes about two minutes to make! — especially if you can serve it in a fun way! (Mine is in a hollowed-out avocado skin above.)

Can’t say no pico de gallo

  • 1 large tomato
  • 1/2 large onion (red or white)
  • 1 Tbls. freeze-dried cilantro (fresh works too)
  • 1 Tbls. lime juice
  1. Chop your tomato and onion into small squares.
  2. Combine tomato, onion, and cilantro in bowl. Squeeze lime over top and mix well.
  3. Enjoy with chips, burritos, taco salads, or just straight from the bowl!

How to “level up” this recipe:

  • Add in some chopped avocado as well. Delicious and filling!

How to “level down” this recipe:

  • To make it easier, you could use canned chopped tomatoes. Super simple!
