Mexican Rice Bowls

I made these for dinner last night and they were a big hit with everyone. We are eating healthier at our house and this was not only healthy, but so delicious that I plan on making it regularly. It will be great for the summer because it requires no oven and you can make it in about 20 minutes AND it is meatless and inexpensive, yea! I hope to share many healthy and delicious recipes in the coming months with the calories calculated for you. O course, I will mix it up with the occasional splurge, we can't completely deprive ourselves, right?

Mexican Rice Bowls
