Oh heyyyyy, you're new favorite easy dinner recipe is here! This rice is totally versatile! You could stuff it into bell pepper, use it to fill burritos, or simply eat it as is. We made "burrito bowls," and ate this with romaine lettuce and one avocado each. If you have a busy schedule you could make it ahead of time as part of your weekly food prep. Which by the way, I might start doing after reading this article!
3 cups cooked brown rice
1.5 cups cooked black beans
drizzle of olive oil
1.5 cups diced bell peppers (any colors- I used red, yellow, and green)
1 16 oz jar of salsa*
1/2 cup corn (optional)
1 tsp cumin
cilantro for garnish
cook the rice and black beans according to instructions.
when the rice and beans are nearly finished, saute the bell peppers in a drizzle of olive oil in a large pot until the peppers are fork-tender. (medium heat for about 5 minutes)
reduce the heat to low and stir the salsa, corn, and cumin into the sauteed peppers, then mix in the rice and beans.
eat with sliced avocado and some fresh cilantro on top!
*if you're using store bought salsa, make sure to check the ingredients! The ingredients should be wholesome foods like; onions, tomatoes, vinegar, spices, peppers. NO added sugars...
