Tex Mex Bowls

I've written here before about my fondness for vegan bowls. Bowls are a go to dinner for us at least once or twice a week (if not more...) Usually we're pretty free-form with our Bowl recipes, just tossing together whatever veggies are in the fridge. But there is one Bowl recipe that we make pretty consistently. We call them Tex Mex Bowls.

Here's how they come together:

Brown rice
The ingredients, ready to go
Black beans (if canned, drained and rinsed. If dry, soaked and cooked)
Chopped onion (I like to saute my onions a bit, til they're soft)
Diced red pepper and/or other pepper
Corn kernels
Diced tomato
Chopped spinach
Diced avocado
Chopped cilantro
Tex Mex Sauce (recipe below)

I usually set ours up salad-bar style, so everyone can assemble their own bowl the way they like it.
To assemble, I usually start with a scoop of rice on the bottom, then just pile in a spoonful (or two) of everything else. Mix it around and eat. YUM.

Tex Mex Sauce

1 can of tomatoes (diced, crushed, whatever... )
Chili Seasoning, taste (store bought, or homemade)

Blend together in a blender until smooth. Pour into a small pot and heat through, simmering for 15 minutes for the flavors to blend.

Mixed up and ready to eat... Ole!
