  • For the rice:
  • 2 cups jasmine rice
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1/4 cup onion, chopped
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1 dash cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • For the chicken:
  • 1 package fajita seasoning
  • 3 cups chicken, chopped
  • For the guacamole:
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 lime
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon salsa or chopped tomato
  • pepper, to taste
  • Other:
  • 2 cups frozen corn
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 bag low-fat shredded cheddar or Mexican blend cheese
  • 2 cups lettuce, chopped
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1 container low-fat sour cream


  1. Start by making the rice first (be sure to follow the directions on the bag of any jasmine rice you're using). The only difference will be that you're adding salt, butter, lime juice, onion, cumin and cilantro. Add these after the boiling stage but before the simmering stage. Mix well and keep covered.

  2. While the rice is cooking, steam the corn in a separate pot and keep warming on the side.

  3. Drain the black beans and pour can into a separate pot. Heat on low, stirring often, until hot.

  4. Make the chicken: Add a little bit of oil of your choice to a frying pan and toss the chopped chicken in. Heat chicken on medium heat, stirring often to get chicken cooking evenly. Add 1/4 cup of water and entire package of fajita seasoning. Add more water if necessary. Toss and stir chicken until evenly coated, turn heat to low-med and simmer for another 5 to 8 minutes.

  5. Make the guacamole: Remove peel and core from avocado and chop up into pieces. Add to a medium bowl. Chop and blend avocado until it's the desired texture. Add the chopped cilantro, 1/4 cup of onions, lime juice, salsa or tomatoes, and mix well. Add pepper to taste.

  6. Assemble. First add rice to bowl and then add black beans. Add the cooked chicken or protein of your choice. Add the desired amount of corn and top with shredded cheese. Then add freshly chopped tomatoes and lettuce. Add the sour cream and guacamole to the top.

  7. Garnish with fresh cilantro.
