We have been eating a lot of Mexican food lately. Pregnancy has thrown off my tastes and food desires, but Mexican food has been a staple. It always sounds good to me. Josh has been making me a lot of quesadillas, burritos, and enchiladas. When he made Cilantro Lime Rice to take to a party, I asked if he could make a large batch for us to have at home. I used the cilantro lime rice to create a Mexican Rice Bowl.
Josh always cooks dinner, but unfortunately he is not home during lunch time, so I am on my own. I usually don’t feel like cooking, so my meals have been interesting. When I saw the cilantro lime rice in the refrigerator I decided to make a Mexican Rice Bowl. I added black beans, tomatoes, red onion, cilantro, and avocado to the rice. I squeezed fresh lime juice over the entire dish for an extra kick of citrus.
This was the best lunch I have had in a long time. It really hit the spot, plus it was beyond easy to make. My kind of meal! I know this will be a regular meal at our house. Mexican Rice Bowls are fun and easy to make. Feel free to add cheese, chicken, fish, or any other toppings you like. And yes, I realize I served my Mexican Rice Bowl on a plate, but I usually eat it in a bowl. I just wanted you to see the entire dish:)
