Ingredients

  • ½ cup white rice
  • ½ zucchini
  • 1 bell pepper, yellow
  • 2 chili peppers
  • 2 tbsp fajita spice mix (or 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp chili powder, 1 tsp paprika and ¼ tsp salt)
  • 1 cup black beans (cooked, drained and rinsed)

For the salsa:

For guacamole:

  • 1 avocado
  • 1 red onion (diced)
  • 2 tomato
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice

Instructions

  • Cook the white rice according to packet instructions.
  • Chop the zucchini, yellow bell pepper and chili peppers into thin slices. Fry them in oil on medium heat for about 12 minutes, adding a little fajita spice mix. If you don’t have a spice mix to hand simply add 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp chili powder, 1 tsp paprika and ¼ tsp salt. Add the rinsed and drained black beans after about five minutes.
  • Grab some spicy salsa! If you don’t have any, it’s very simple to make. Dice a small onion and a slice of garlic. Chop a chili pepper up too. Throw it all in a bowl, add a tin of chopped tomatoes, 2 tbsp dried basil, 2 tbsp dried parsley, ½ tsp salt and ½ tsp pepper. Give it all a good stir. Use fresh herbs if you have them, of course.
  • Make some guacamole. You can do this by destoning an avocado and mashing it in a bowl. Dice half a red onion and add that, too. Chop and add two small tomatoes. Grate in a clove of garlic. Add a little salt, pepper and 2 tbsp lemon juice. Optionally add a few coriander leaves and/or a chopped red pepper. Give it a good stir.
  • Slice some jalapeños and grab some grated cheese. Arrange everything in a bowl, topped with the salsa and guacamole. Prepare for some heat!

Notes

Lovely Add-Ons: Jalapeños, grated cheese, a few cilantro leaves and/or a chopped red pepper
