1 cup instant brown rice
⅓ cup salsa
½ cup corn (frozen or canned, drained and rinsed)
½ cup black beans (cooked or canned, drained and rinsed)

Notes

  • Broth can be made at home, purchased in a can or box or made using bouillon. For each cup of broth use 1 cup very hot water and 1 teaspoon or 1 cube bouillon.

  • Substitute 1 1/3 cups of Farmers Market Salsa in place of the last three ingredients.
  • Try adding cilantro on top for more flavor.
