If you’re trying to imagine what this tastes like, think Baja-inspired Chipotle burrito bowl, only way healthier!! But still just as yummy 🙂

Serves: 4     Time: 20 minutes (with pre-cooked rice)


  • 2 tilapia fish fillets
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 cup corn kernels
  • 1 cup black beans
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • ½ avocado, cut in small pieces
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice

Directions: In a small bowl mix the cumin, cayenne pepper and chill powder. Rub generously over the tilapia fillets on both sides.Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the fish to the skillet and cook for about 3 minutes on each side. You want to make sure it gets almost blackened and that the fish is cooked through, inside it should be white. Remove fish from skillet and shred with a couple forks.In the same skillet add, garlic, green onions, corn and red pepper. Season with salt and pepper if preferred. Stir and cook. Let it cook for a couple minutes then stir again. You want to make sure the corn is brown and looks roasted. Add beans and cook until beans are heated through.To serve, layer rice, corn/bean mixture, fish, avocados and sprinkle with fresh lemon juice.
