  4. Add diced onion and cook until translucent

  17. Once rice is cooked, stir in spices
  18. Assemble bowl – chilli, rice, salsa, guacamole, corn, carrot, cabbage, spring onion, coriander stalk, fresh chilli, drizzle of cheese sauce
  1. Leftovers - Keep raw ingredients in one container and cooked ingredients in another so you can reheat them easily.
