What’s for Lunch? Rice & Bean Burrito Bowl!

Easy lunches are my bag!  (pun intended).  This one can be packed to go.  If I don’t have any leftover brown rice handy, I’ll use Minute Ready to Serve Brown Rice.   

It requires only 1 minute in the microwave.  So, put your beans, corn, salsa, and other toppings in one container, pack a rice cup with it and assemble at work or school (microwave needed).  If leftover rice is used, a microwave is not needed but I recommend keeping the rice separate from the toppings until it is time to eat.

Rice & Bean Burrito Bowl (serves 2)

1 can black or pinto beans, drained & rinsed

1 can sweet corn, drained

2 cups cooked brown rice

½ cup shredded cheddar cheese

Your favorite salsa

Your choice:  cherry tomatoes, avocado, lite sour cream.

Divide rice between 2 bowls.  Place ½ cup beans, ½ cup corn, and ¼ cup cheese on top of each rice bowl.  Top with your choice of salsa and toppings.
