Spicy Shrimp Burrito Bowls

When I think of a burrito bowl, I think of Chipotle like I am sure most people do. That was my first experience with eating one and has given me tons of inspiration over the years of making my own at home. We usually do vegetarian burrito bowls, and often turn to them several times throughout the week. As much as I adore the vegetarian burrito bowls we make, and hope to share them with you soon, I am way more in love right now with these Spicy Shrimp Burrito Bowls.
