Mexican Fiesta Bowl
One of us has to have meat on the fiesta bowl. This is a really good recipe that I will make again and again.
1 avocado peeled, seeded, cut into 2" pieces
1 Tablespoon lime juice
1 cup cooked rice (I used farro), but brown rice would be great
4 cups lettuce
1 cup frozen corn kernels, defrosted
1 1/2 cups canned, rinsed and drained black beans
1 cup cherry tomatoes, cut in 1/2
1 medium jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
1/2 cup reduced fat oil and vinegar dressing
2 tablespoons sliced almonds
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
Peel avocado and remove the seed. Cut into 2" pieces. Place kin a bowl and toss with the lime juice. Cook the rice according to instructions on box. Divide the lettuce between two large bowls. Spoon corn on one side of the lettuce, black beans on another side, tomatoes on a third side, and black beans on the remaining side. Place the avocado in the center. Mix the jalapeno pepper and dressing together in a small bowl and drizzle over the corn, black beans, and tomatoes. Sprinkle the almonds and cilantro on top.
