{What's For Dinner?}

My dinner tonight was simple and tasty, a repeat by request. It's possible to find most all of the ingredients at Trader Joe's, which means it's cost efficient as well! Grab these yummy ingredients and whip yourself up one easy peasy meal!

{Black Bean & Brown Rice Carnitas Bowl}

1 Tbsp Cold Pressed, Extra Virgin Organic Coconut Oil (Yes, all those attributes are very important!)
1- 1/2 cup Chopped Yellow Onion
4 cups Organic Cooked Brown Rice
1 can Cooked Black Beans
1 carton of TJ's Latin Black Bean Soup
1 cup Organic Sweet Corn
12 oz TJ's Cooked and Shredded Carnitas Meat

1 Tomato (For quality taste go for the vine-ripened), Diced
1/2 of an Avocado, Diced
Shredded Diaya Cheese (optional)

In a large saute pan heat the Coconut Oil and Onion on medium heat.  Cook until the Onions are soft and yellow or until they are slightly browned.  Add the Brown Rice and Black Bean Soup to the Onions and stir well.  Bring the mixture to a light boil, then reduce to your lowest heat setting.  Allow it to simmer, stirring it often to keep it from thickening in one area.  Prepare your Carnitas.  I like to use kitchen scissors to create bite size pieces (less messy), but I have used my hands to tear off pieces too.  10 minutes before you are ready to eat, pour in the Corn and stir in the Carnitas pieces.  Scoop into a bowl or onto a warmed Corn Tortilla (taco-style) and add the Avocado and Tomato to top it off! Enjoy and I hope you go for seconds!
