1. Mexican night with some girlfriends on the weekend consisting of tequila, DVDs and nachos,
2. Fit Foodie Find's most recent post 'Healthy Fiesta Lime Rice'
and 3. A need for more exciting/nutritional lunches to eat at work
this recipe was born!!
Easy Mexican Rice and Bean Salad
left over rice (I had around 1.5 cups left)
1 tin red kidney beans (can use any beans, these just happened to be the ones in the cupboard), rinsed and warmed through
1 tomato, diced
1/2 cucumber, diced
1/2 small capsicum, diced
1 avocado, diced
juice of 1 lemon (to help keep the avocados from browning)
2 Tbsp Salsa, I used Old el paso Medium Spicy bean salsa
1 Tbsp low fat sour cream
Mix all ingredients together and enjoy!
** I would also have added 1/4 cup fresh coriander, chopped and 1 cob of corn worth of kernels if I had them in the fridge.... but unfortunately I didn't :( but please do try it with these additions and let me know how it goes :)
