  • 1 cup black beans
  • 1 cup corn
  • 1 bunch cilantro
  • lime juice
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 cup Pico de Gallo
  • ½ cup cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup sour cream


  • In a skillet or pan, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Once warmed, add in ground beef and taco seasoning. Cook for approximately 5 minutes, occasionally stirring until meat is fully cooked.
  • To assemble the taco bowl, add in cilantro lime rice to the bottom of your bowl and top off with cooked ground beef and your favorite toppings.



  • You can lighten this meal up by using cauliflower rice instead of regular rice.
  • If you like to add salad dressing to this bowl, a creamy cilantro dressing or ranch pairs well. 
  • If you’re out of ground beef, ground chicken, turkey, and pork can be used in place.
  • If there’s any liquid in the pan from the fat, be sure to drain it to keep the ground beef from being greasy. 
  • If you don't have olive oil, you can use any oil of your choice, like canola oil, vegetable oil, or sunflower oil, in place of it.
