Black Bean & Rice Fiesta Breakfast

Here’s another delicious use for that Cilantro Lime Rice … make a TexMex breakfast out of it! I had this for breakfast one very busy morning because I wanted to eat up the last bit of the cilantro lime rice before my kids and I headed out for the day’s adventure. I needed a simple but hearty breakfast that would energize me for the long haul because we had a long day ahead of us with very few chances to eat. This quick little breakfast definitely did the trick. The protein from the beans, cheese and egg along with the carbs from the rice were just what my body needed that day.

All I did was heat up that yummy rice with some black beans, add some melty cheese and some of my Copycat Chili’s salsa (with a little chipotle and cilantro added) and then topped it all off with an egg. I was out of fresh cilantro or I would have thrown a few cilantro leaves on top as well, but it was delightful, just like this. A perfect, quick breakfast for a busy day.
