This is the ultimate Mexican inspired Buddha bowl that will delight everyone. I have to confess Mexican inspired food is probably my favourite food to create, I find the flavours are such a crowd pleaser- they are fresh, spicy (if you like!) earthy, satisfying and hearty.
I have created by dream burrito bite patties that pair beautifully with the smoky chipotle corn, crispy salad and creamy tangy guacamole. You could also serve these as an appetiser if you were entertaining.
The spices in this are quite subtle, but if you like a bit of a kick, feel free to add more chilli powder in the bean mix or put some fresh sliced chilli on top.
