Spicy Corona Mexican Rice with Pork, Avocado, and Sour Cream
I can mix up those spicy flavors any way I like. Soups, salads, dips, burritos, stews, tacos. Use fish, pork, beef, chicken, or make it vegetarian. You just can’t miss.
When you treat yourself to Mexican food at your favorite restaurant, you can expect an abundance of salt, fat and calories. Why not make your favorite dishes yourself? You’ll control the fat and calories. Even a simple plate of Nachos can be a healthy choice if you use baked chips, low-fat cheese, beans, lean meat, and lots of veggies in the form of peppers and tomatoes.
This Mexican rice recipe uses quick cooking brown rice, lean pork, beans and lots of tomato and colorful peppers. Top your dish with just a bit of avocado and light sour cream, and use your favorite baked chips to scoop up the spicy goodness.

What’s good for me in this dish?
Pork trimmed of visible fat can be considered a lean meat. Specifically boneless pork chops, or tenderloin. Pork is a good source of Vitamin C, Niacin, Phosphorus and Zinc, and a very good source of Protein, Vitamin B12, Iron and Selenium. Pork is higher in cholesterol.
Beans are an excellent source of antioxidants, folic acid, potassium, dietary fiber and complex carbohydrates. Beans are so filling due to the high fiber content, and a great source of protein.
Tomatoes provide a great source of vitamins C, A and K. Not to mention the antioxidant and cancer preventing benefits of Lycopene. Tomatoes support colon and prostate health, as well as good source of potassium and a good source of niacin, vitamin B6, and folate to support a healthy heart.
