If you feel like you eat the same thing all of the time and want to mix it up with tasty Mexican food, you don't have to spend a ton of time preparing enchiladas or fajitas! Here are some easy Mexican dishes you can cook in a bowl with fresh ingredients you probably already have.

Mexican Sweet Potato Bowl with Cashew-Lime Cream

"Rice bowls are amazing. So many different flavors and components you get to scoop up in one yummy spoonful. I’m such a huge fan of Mexican + southwest-style flavors. And I invited sweet potatoes to the party! I don’t use them enough, but roasted sweet potatoes and black beans pair so well together. Sweet potatoes are a fun addition to soup, salads, burritos, and rice bowls. For some reason it just makes the dish seem a little cozier!"
