  1. Place a large skillet on medium heat. Once heated, melt the butter in the skillet. Add the rice and beans, stirring frequently. Cook until they are thoroughly heated, which should take about 3 minutes. Add water if necessary to achieve the desired rice texture. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. In a blender or mini food processor, combine half of an avocado, 2 tablespoons of cilantro, and lime juice. Blend until the mixture reaches a thin sauce consistency. If needed, add a little water to thin it out.
  3. In four separate bowls, evenly distribute the rice and bean mixture, along with the tomatoes and corn. Sprinkle each bowl with salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle approximately 2 tablespoons of the avocado-cilantro sauce over each bowl. Top each serving with the remaining avocado slices and cilantro. Finish by adding 1 tablespoon of crushed tortilla chips to each bowl for a crunchy texture.


  • – For added protein, consider topping the bowl with grilled chicken or tofu.
