    Santa-Fe Rice Bowl

    This Santa-Fe Rice Bowl in a Jar will be your new go-to lunch. The dressing is contained on the bottom and when the jar is flipped over, the colorful and hearty layers spill out tossed in a creamy sauce. 


    Ingredients
    1 1/4
    cups
    water
    1/2
    cup
    long-grain brown rice
    1/4
    teaspoon
    salt
    1/2
    cup
    avocado, chopped
    1
    teaspoon
    freshly squeezed lemon juice
    1
    tablespoon
    Sour Cream
    1
    teaspoon
    hot pepper sauce
    1/2
    cup
    canned black beans, drained and rinsed
    1/2
    cup
    cherry tomatoes, sliced
    1/4
    cup
    orange bell pepper, chopped
    1/4
    cup
    shredded cheddar cheese
    1
    tablespoon
    fresh cilantro, chopped
    Directions
    In a medium saucepan, bring water to a boil over high heat. Stir in rice and salt, reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 30 to 50 minutes or until rice is tender and water is absorbed. Remove from heat and fluff with a fork. Let cool completely.
    Place avocado in a bowl and drizzle with lemon juice, tossing to coat.
    Spoon sour cream into jar and drizzle with hot pepper sauce, wiping down any splashes on the side of the jar. Layer rice, beans, tomatoes, avocado, orange pepper, cheese and cilantro. Seal jar and refrigerate for up to 3 days.
    Remove jar from the refrigerator 30 minutes before serving, to bring it to room temperature. Turn jar upside down in a bowl, scooping out the sour cream and dolloping it over the rice.
