Ingredients

  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 1-2 Tablespoons organic coconut oil (or water to steam)
  • 1/2 onion chopped
  • 1/2 green pepper chopped
  • 1-2 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1/4-1/2 cup corn (frozen)
  • 1-2 teaspoon salt
  • 1-2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh cilantro
  • Pepper to taste
  • Cuisine: Cooking time: 20-60 mins Serving: 5 people

    If you use brown rice regularly this could be a quick dish by using left over rice from the fridge otherwise it will take a little over an hour for regular brown rice and 15-25 mins with quick rice but not a ton of work. While you wait for the brown rice to cook you could make up some Black Bean Guacamole to go along with this.

    I really enjoy this recipe when I cook the veggies in a little coconut oil but feel free to steam them in water or broth to lesson the fat which is still wonderful.  I also use less spicy things in mine because I am pleasing children but experiment with this by adding as much or as little of the spicy stuff that you want to suite your taste buds.  I would probably even add a small 4 oz can of chilies to this but the kids would not like that.
