¼ cup sliced onion (or more if you prefer)
2 Tablespoons taco seasoning (be sure you’re choosing a clean version)
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 cup rice (brown, wild or jasmine)
Handful of chopped spinach
¼ avocado sliced
Optional toppings: clean salsa, cilantro, chopped tomatoes
In a pan, sauté oil and garlic for 2 minutes. Add chicken/shrimp, beans, peppers, onion, seasonings, salt and pepper. Cover and cook for 10 minutes. Check to see that meat is cooked thoroughly. Serve over prepared rice, handful of spinach, avocado and your choice of optional toppings.
