Veg Mexican Burrito Bowl

Mexican Burritos bowls are mainly made with rice, beans, two to three types of sauces, sour cream and lettuce. We Visited a restaurant few months back, there we ordered burritos and my husband liked it much. The burrito that we had in restaurant, was a bang in mouth, as soon as you spoon in, you will have several taste of explosions in mouth. A tangy, little sour, spicy, juicy and super tasty burritos.
Well after tasting that, i was looking for the similar recipe or little close to its taste.
