A little Mexican bowl of goodness with a bed of black rice topped with a fresh salsa, beef mince and guacamole. It’s bound to be a crowd pleaser!
1. Place rice in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until tender. Drain and rinse

2. Finely dice tomatoes and onion. Chop coriander. Combine in bowl with lime zest, 1/2 juice and 1 tbsp olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.

3. Using a fork, roughly mash avocado in a bowl with remaining lime juice. Season with salt and pepper.

4. Heat a frypan over medium-high heat with 1 tbsp oil. Slice capsicum and add to pan. Cook for 4-5 minutes, or until tender, set aside. Reserve frypan and keep on heat.

5. Add 1 tbsp oil to frypan along with mince, spice mix and 2 tbsp tomato paste. Cook for 6-8 minutes, breaking up any lumps with a wooden spoon. Stir through 1/2 cup water. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

6. Divide rice evenly between bowls. Top with pico de gallo, capsicum, mince and guacamole to serve.

Add chilli for extra flavour if desired.
