Over a year has gone by since I have featured this recipe! I'd still say it's our most eaten dish! Yummy filling and everyone can make according to their tastes and we just don't seem to get tired of it!
Not only did I feature this recipe almost 2 years ago! We like it so much I'm featuring it AGAIN! It really is so Simple, Healthy, and Tasty and a great way to clean out the fridge! And the best part is EVERYONE likes it! Also note the few additions and ideas I made to it like the Lime Rice and the Mango Salsa. Also if you put it in a large bowl with a whole wheat tortilla your family might think they were dining at Bajio or Cafe Rio!
This has got to be our family's most eaten dish. I bet we have it at least once a week. It's so easy to throw together, you don't have to have everything for it either and it is still good. I just put some brown rice in the rice-cooker (if you don't have one check out the one I recommend, Stainless Steel Rice Cooker Model ME81 (Formerly ME8) - by Miracle Exclusives ) and pull out what ever is in the fridge. It's filling and just good! My picky kids don't have to put the things they don't care for on it so everybody is happy too. Also it's an easy way to eat a lot of fresh vegetables.
Cooked Brown Rice (or my Lime Rice recipe)
Bell Pepper chopped
Zucchini chopped or shredded (optional, I only use this if I have some that need using)
Favorite green leafy lettuce torn into small pieces or spring mix salad
Lime and Cilantro on top or added to your Salsa
Mango Salsa is also a Tasty option
(a little mango with onion, jalapeno, cilantro, lime zest and juice and a little pinch of sea salt)
Using the above ingredients make up a salad however you want it. I usually like to put the cooked rice on my plate first then the beans, corn, and Cheezy Sauce. Then all the fresh stuff and then I top it with the Salsa and add guacamole and dressing if I have them made up. If I have fresh mushrooms that need to be used I will slice them up and saute them with onions in a little olive oil and Shoyu or Balsamic Vinegar and maybe a few spices;) And also put them on top of the rice too. Very Tasty!
