This southwest potato bowl is a power bowl loaded to the top with fresh and delicious ingredients. This power bowl can be made for an easy dinner or you can work ahead use it as meal prep lunches for the week.
Whichever you choose, you won’t regret it!
Our southwest potato bowl starts with a generous base of potatoes. For our recipe we used some fingerling potatoes from Side Delights. These Side Delights Steamables make my life a snap in the kitchen. You might remember I used them to make an Avocado Potato Salad earlier in the year.
We eat a lot of potatoes in this house and sometimes I need them a little bit quicker than typical. Schedules get busy (soccer!!) and I can heat these potato steamables in 8 minutes and have dinner on the table quickly!
We love the southwest flavor profile! Everything from tomatoes, red onion, cilantro, green onions, black beans and more.
This southwest potato bowl boasts some stunning colors with all the fresh ingredients it uses. I also made a video to show you just how easy it is to construct!
It is pretty easy, isn’t it? The best part is that you can add in your favorite items and take out ones that you don’t like.
I know that many of my readers do not like cilantro, so you could leave that out. Make it your own power potato bowl!
After one bite you, will be back for more! I made the bowls dairy-free but you can certainly add your own sour cream or cheese to the mix!
That would taste amazing!
I love to make meals where I can use the recipe to meal prep. Planning ahead and making my lunch/dinner is so helpful to me.
I purchased some glass containers from Amazon. Super easy! (affiliate link)
