its a rare thing today, my friends – i am sharing a recipe with you! this happens so rarely, and today is kind of laughable – its so easy!
a couple years ago, our friends introduced us to yumm bowls, their knock off version from a local restaurant. after making our own at home, we have tweaked it just a bit, so i’m sharing a sort of third hand version ;)
these are a favorite of ours for several reasons: everyone loves them, you can make them your own (adding your own favorite ingredients), and they are really quick to make (perfect for those nights that you forget to plan for dinner!).
ingredients: rice (my family uses brown rice – frozen bags from costco – i go without), beans (pinto or black), meat or no meat (can even be leftovers, like chicken or pork), shredded cheese, tomatoes, cilantro, avocado, lime wedges, sour cream, salsa (or corn salsa from trader joe’s is my favorite!), cilantro and sliced olives.
while the beans are heating on the stove (i use 2 cans), i toss a bag of frozen rice in the microwave. then i chop up the rest of the ingredients (cilantro, tomatoes, and avocados) and am ready to serve dinner in about 5 minutes!
