Personally I don't like using basmati rice for burrito bowl. Either use mexican rice or sona masoori rice.
If we plan it properly, making burrito bowl is an easy task. It is always a big hit.
You can also use store bought tomato salsa and guacamole. 
Alternatively cilantro, garlic and lemon juice can be ground and added to rice.
