Directions

In a large round bottom skillet over high heat add water, celery, peppers, sprouts, and onion, and cilantro.

Turn the heat down to medium high and add the corn, beans, rice, hot sauce and salt stirring constantly to prevent sticking. When they are heated add the avocado and stir it on until it is heated, but not mushy. Serve. Makes 6 cups.

  • Is the rice supposed to be cooked when adding? I didn't think it would cook without additional water, so I covered the veggies, beans and rice with water and simmered the whole pot, which probably killed some nutrients. Still tasted nice but would be good to know. - 5/15/11

  • I loved this recipe - my picky teenager did too! I left out the cilantro and added a bit of cumin. - 2/27/11
