You really can make just about anything into a rice bowl. After I convert a favorite salad of mine into a bbq chicken rice bowl, I decided to make a Mexican Rice Bowl.

With this version, I used cilantro lime rice as the base and for the meat used I my go to way for making taco meat, which includes beans. You can always mix up the toppings used in your bowl, but we loved the combination the I used.

For the rice, you just cook it on the stove top in some butter until golden. Then you add in some chicken broth, lime juice, lime zest, cilantro, cumin, and salt. This ice is so delicious and would even made a great side dish for other meals.

For the meat mixture, you brown some ground beef and mix it with some chili beans in mild sauce and taco seasoning. It’s that simple. This rice bowl was another great hit for dinner with the family and I am sure it will be a frequent meal that the family requests for dinner now.
