Pork Burrito Bowls

A super simple, quick meal for a Monday night! I always love a colorful meal, and this is just that. Plus, it's delicious! If ground pork is not a favorite at your house, ground chicken, beef, or turkey would work just as well.

  • Mince a few onion wedges and combine with tomato in a small bowl. Add lime juice and season with salt and pepper to taste.
