Good Eats: ecoLife Brown Basmati Rice

A favorite meal in our household is basically a knock off of chipotle burrito bowls. ecoLife sent me some basmati rice and it was the perfect way to try it. Not like I needed an excuse to make these...
This time around I cooked my rice via rice cooker, but next time I will try the stove method. I generally use a rice cooker when making rice and this rice does not stick to the cooker! It has a light texture and since it is brown rice, its a little better for you than traditional white rice. 

Bunch of Cilantro
2 Tomatos
1/2 cup Corn
1/4 cup Onion
1/2 cup Black Beans
Sour Cream
Mexican Cheese
Prepare your chicken in the oven. You can season it however you want, I think I season mine however I feel like at the moment. 
I prepared my rice in the rice cooker! I'm a girl on the go so it works for me. 
To prepare the salsa toppings just cut the tomatoes, onions, cilantro, and combine with the black beans, corn and some lime juice. Add salt if needed. 
When the chicken and rice are cooked layer the rice into the bottom of your plate. Layer your chicken on top of the rice. I decided to cut my chicken into cubes, but you can shred or just plate your chicken! Add your salsa topping, then place sour cream and cheese on top.  
According to ecoLife: ecoLife® Organic Quick Cook Brown Basmati Rice hails from the rural farms of India. Our premium quality, naturally aged brown rice is cultivated in the  Punjab region at the foothills of the Himalayaswhere authentic basmati rice is grown. The organic soil is fed by melted snow under natural conditions. The integrity of the grain is maintained via a hydration process where the raw grain is gently scratched, steamed, and rolled. This produces the same great texture, nutrition, and taste but reduces the cooking time t o just 12 minutes. 

I also like how big this bag of rice is, I think this should hold us over a little bit longer. I might have a few more good eats to share!
