Go Green

This dish is versatile enough to use for a rice bowl or as a filling for burritos or tacos for your next Taco Tuesday party. Looking for more ideas? Take some inspiration from these Mean Green Stuffed Portobellos and use it to stuff mushrooms or some peppers.

This rice is naturally vegetarian, but feel free to add in shredded chicken, turkey or your protein of choice to add protein and turn it into a well-balanced main dish. If you’re avoiding cheese, mash up an avocado and use that instead of the cheese.
