There are two reasons why I love this recipe, it’s fast and it’s easy. That’s it. Total time for cooking and prepping maximum: 30 minutes.
1 cup uncooked rice or quinoa – whichever you prefer, follow cooking instructions
1 (15 oz) can of black beans, drained and rinsed
1 (15 oz) can corn, drained and rinsed
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp smoke paprika
pinch of salt and pepper
A jar of salsa or pico de gallo
Sour cream and cheese, for serving
In a skillet over medium heat, add olive oil, black beans, corn, chili powder, smoked paprika, salt and pepper. Stir together and sauté 5-10 minutes, or until mixture is heated through.
To construct your bowl, add rice/quinoa, black bean/corn, salsa, guacamole and sour cream and any additional toppings you’d like.
In addition to above, ground turkey, steak or chicken would be a delicious addition to this meal. As well as mixed greens or spinach.
