This fresh take on burritos transforms a Mexican favorite into a bowl.  Everything cooks in one pan in under 30 minutes, so cleanup is a breeze.  In this recipe, cumin-seasoned ground beef simmers with picante sauce and uncooked rice and then gets topped with cheese.  The best part?  Everyone can customize their bowls with their favorite burrito fixings.
