Rice Bowls

WE LOVE these rice bowls for dinner! Super easy and really healthy too! This is a light meal with lots of flavor and everyone will enjoy!


1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can sweet corn, rinsed
tomatoes, chopped
instant brown or white rice (make the appropriate serving size for your family)
chopped avocado
chopped olives
grated cheese
this dressing

1. Ok, this is really easy.....seriously. First, cook your rice. I always cook mine in chicken stock or throw in a couple bouillon cubes for a bit more flavor. This takes about 10 minutes to cook. Prepare all your fixings while your rice cooks!
2. You have to make the creamy cilantro dressing....this is why these bowls are sooo good!! So make that too while the rice is cooking.

3. Ok, time to make the rice bowls!! Start with rice on the bottom. Next I put the cheese (so it melts a bit) and then beans, corn, tomatoes, avocados, olives. Pour that yummy dressing on top, and dig in!

* You could add in grilled chicken or taco seasoned ground turkey, that would be good!
* Serve these bowls with warm tortillas and watermelon! Yum!


  1. I made this for dinner the other night, and wish we could eat it every night for dinner... so, so good!! I even shared this link on my facebook page and had friends try it and love it too!! Thanks so much for a great summer time dinner idea!

  2. you'll never know how much I love your recipes--thank you! would you mind adding a search box so we could just type in the recipe instead of trying to find it under the labels? I was looking under Asian because of the rice...

    You're the best!
