Are you tired of the same old Mexican rice? I know I’m getting a little bored of mine because I make it with nearly every Mexican meal, so I decided to switch things up a bit. This recipe could also be called guacamole rice because it tastes just like so. I love it though because I always find myself dolloping a generous amount of guacamole over my Mexican rice all the time.

Aren’t we all always on the lookout for a quick and easy, healthy lunch, one that isn’t boring. This rice is just what I’ve been looking for. It begins with brown rice, then it’s covered in a creamy avocado, vibrant cilantro and a zesty lime mixture. It requires minimal ingredients but together they create something completely delicious! Really though, if you say the word avocado, I’m in. I just love avocados! Lately I’ve just been mashing them up and slathering them on my toast in place of butter and surprisingly enough it tastes incredibly good. I think it’s safe to say they are one of the worlds best ingredients.

Healthy lunch or appetizer, look no further. This one you’ve got to try!

Enjoy!
