This is one of our staple recipes. The ingredients can vary due to preference and what you have on hand, also what is fresh! It can be made with or without meat (chicken, steak, shrimp or just black beans!) – we’ve made it both with chicken and without and it was equally delicious!

BROWN RICE BOWL – Serves 2
1 package Trader Joe’s Brown Rice (freezer), it’s just rice, but you microwave it so it cooks quickly, but you can always use cooked brown rice!
1 Boneless/Skinless Chicken Breast (we usually split one for this meal)
1 carton or can Black Beans (use however much you like), drained and rinsed
Avocado, diced (or you can use fresh guacamole)
Fresh Salsa (or you can cut up tomatoes, onion, a little garlic, lime juice)
Pepper Jack Cheese, shredded
Blue Corn Chips (or any tortilla chips)
Cook the protein (i.e. we grill the chicken with olive oil, or you could sauté shrimp, etc.)
Cook the brown rice according to package directions.
Put black beans in a small pan and heat on stove or in glass dish in microwave, just until hot.
Set up the diced avocado, shredded cheese, and salsa (we bought Heirloom Tomato Salsa from Whole Foods, it was out of this world!)…
Spoon some rice into your bowl (it can look like not much and end up being a lot!)…
Add cheese, Black Beans, Avocado and Salsa. Squeeze lime over the top (owie, this is so good!)… top with a few tortilla chips.
Out. Of. This. World, right?
Catch you back here tomorrow!
