Grain Base: Start off with the base of your bowl including traditional varieties like white rice or whole grain brown rice, or use a grain and vegetable blend like White Rice, Black Beans, Corn, & Bell Peppers. No need to chop any vegetables or cook any beans because they are already premixed with your fluffy white rice in this hassle-free mix. No measuring required and no mess!
Vegetables: As the grain base already includes corn and bell peppers you’re set for this recipe. However, you can add extra vegetables as you please, chop them up ahead of time for convenience and just toss them in with your base.
Protein Source: Choose anything from breakfast sausage and bacon to a plant-based alternative or in this recipe — a perfectly fried egg. Quickly fry your egg on a non-stick pan. The key to a perfectly fried egg is waiting for the butter or oil to heat up before cracking in your egg.
Garnish/Toppings/Sauce: To tie your whole bowl together, you need to add some extra toppings. For this recipe, prepare homemade salsa or purchase your favorite premade variety to satisfy your craving for a more mild or spicy Tex-Mex touch. Then add crumbled queso fresco and ripe avocado for the final touch. This meal can be enjoyed with a side of tortilla chips or crush them on top.
Meal Prep Tip: If you have an extremely busy schedule, prepare some of the ingredients beforehand leaving them in the fridge and tossing them all together in the morning before work. Or prepackage them as desired leaving off the salsa until ready to enjoy.
