Southwestern Rice Bowl

Kimberly Lord Stewart | Delicious Living
  • Serves: 1 people

A tasty and price-conscious lunch. This is a homemade version of those expensive rice bowls sold in the frozen-food section. Baked tortilla chips or a warm tortilla round out the dish. For weekday efficiency, make more than one; they keep in the refrigerator for up to four days.

  1. In a microwave-safe bowl with a lid, layer ingredients in the order listed. Cover and microwave for 30-60 seconds, until hot.
