  • 1 tbsp Taco Seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin Powder
  • 2 tbsp Scallions, chopped
  • 1-1/2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • Cilantro, chopped
  • Salt to taste

Method:-

2. Add rice and toast for 1 minute, and add taco seasoning, salsa, corn, black beans, cumin powder, scallions, and salt. Mix well.

3. Add vegetable broth, and bring it up to the boil. Turn down the heat, cover pan with lead and cook rice for 15-20 minutes.
