Fiesta Rice

27 Jun

This recipe is based on one I found from “Gina’s Skinny Recipes” at I altered it just to suit our tastes as the original looked great as it was! This reminded me of the rice Chipotle serves.

Time: 10min prep, 20min cook                Serves: 6


  • 2 1/2 cups cooked basmati rice (about 1 1/4 cups uncooked + 2 1/2 cups water, cooked for about 15 minutes or until moisture is just absorbed)
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked black beans (about 1 15 oz. can, drained & rinsed or about half cup dried black beans, soaked & cooked)
  • 1 1/2 cups corn (about 1 15 oz. can, drained)
  • 2 tbsp lime juice (fresh squeezed)
  • 1 tsp lime zest
  • 1-2 large scallions, trimmed & sliced
  • 2-4 tbsp roughly chopped cilantro (amount according to your taste)
  • salt to taste

How to make it

  • In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and mix to incorporate.
