Looking for a nice, simple dinner that doesn’t require you to slave over the stove in this heat? Gotcha covered. This colorful, flavorful bowl full of healthy nutrients can be made in the rice cooker. It’s literally dump, top, and serve. This is my favorite type of dinner: tasty, easy, and healthy!
The base is made of rice corn, and beans, and the toppings can include just about anything you want. I like to add fresh tomatoes to mine, and my husband likes bell pepper. We both do onions, salsa, and sour cream. Guacamole, ranch dressing, tortilla chips – dress it up any way you like! It’s pretty hard to go wrong with this.
- 1 cup uncooked rice
