Start by steaming your brown rice. Add a squeeze of fresh lime juice and cilantro when it is done cooking. Follow package instructions for cook time.

Drain and rinse black beans. Mix the black beans and corn in a bowl. Add any seasonings you like.

Begin to sauté onion, bell pepper, and mushrooms in 2 tablespoons of olive oil with spices. (Add spices based on personal taste.) When your veggies are beginning to soften, throw in beans and corn with the sautéed veggies to cook until veggies are done cooking.

In a new bowl, add rice and the sautéed mixture. Top with guacamole, salsa, and fresh cilantro. If you eat dairy, add one serving each of sour cream and shredded cheese.

If you really enjoy your fajita bowl, you can even use it as a “meal-prep” meal. Just prepare the ingredients ahead of time, keep them portioned in separate containers, and assemble the bowl when you’re ready to get your grub on!
