[Recipe] Tex-Mex Meal in a Bowl

Mexican Meal in a Bowl

I love the tangy and spicy flavors of Mexican food. However, I don't always have taco shells or tortillas in the pantry. This recipe is perfect for those moments when you may be missing some traditional ingredients. Dive into the fridge, freezer and pantry and find the odd ends of veggies and anything that may need to be eaten pronto and throw it in.

Serves 2

1 1/4 cup (~1/2 of a 454g package) firm tofu, crumbled or 1 cup of you choice of ground meat, chicken or even whole shrimp
2 tsp oil
1/3-1/2 package of taco seasoning (depending on how spicy and salty you like your filling)
1/2 cup corn
1/2 avocado, diced
1 small carrot, shredded
1/2 red pepper, diced small
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 small tomato, diced small
4 mushrooms, sliced
2 cups brown riced, cooked
2 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
2 tbsp hard cheese, grated
Sprinkle of your favorite hot sauce

1. In a small, non-stick pan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the tofu, seasonings and garlic. Cook until heated through (if using minced meat, heat until cook through).
2. Add red peppers, mushrooms, and corn and cook until browned, about 5 min.
3. Add 1 cup of warmed, cooked brown rice to each bowl. Top with half the tofu/meat & vegetable mixture.
4. Sprinkle with the rest of the ingredients: avocado, carrot, tomato, cilantro, cheese and hot sauce.
