Rice, Beans and Avocado is a combo we never tire of…. it’s cozy, hearty, delicious and versatile!
You are probably familiar with other rice and bean dishes we love:
Veggie Burrito Bowl with Mexican Rice
Sweet Potato & Black Bean Burrito Bowl
Cuban Rice and Beans
This Skillet Rice and Beans is one of our favorites, always in the rotation.
It works well on its own, with lettuce and avocado as shown here or served alongside grilled chicken or another protein of choice.
And what makes it even better?
It can be entirely made ahead and heats up well whether you’re enjoying dinner as a family or everyone is coming and going and needs to eat on their own schedule.
This also makes it perfect if you’re someone who loves to meal prep!
It’s simply rice & beans cooked up with sautéed onion, vegetable broth and lots of yummy spices, mixed with toasted corn and fresh tomato salsa.
Easy to make, fresh and flavorful.
Plus you can keep the 3 “parts” separate until serving so that it is freshest and that also helps in case you are feeding kids who like the rice and beans but not the salsa… just saying.
Mixed together, it is a beauty! Colorful, festive and inviting.
And no matter how you enjoy it, it is a crowd-pleaser….
The boys like it without the corn and salsa, alongside grilled chicken; my husband likes it in a veggie burrito; and I love it topped with creamy avocado over a bowl of lettuce.
Nothing better than a dish that works for everyone!
