Sprinkles™ Fiesta Lunch-to-Go

Makes four servings


Fiesta Dressing (ingredients below)
2 c cooked white rice, room temperature
2 c pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 tbsp chopped cilantro stems
1 tsp chopped Jalapeño
1 avocado, diced
1 tbsp fresh lime juice
2 c Sprinkles™ tomatoes
1 c chopped fresh cilantro leaves for garnish

Fiesta Dressing
¼ tsp ground cumin
¼ tsp sweet paprika
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp chili powder
¼ tsp honey
¼ tsp kosher salt
1/8 tsp freshly ground black peppercorns
½ tsp fresh lime zest
1 tbsp fresh lime juice
3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil


Combine all Fiesta Dressing ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine dressing, rice, beans, chopped cilantro stems and jalapeño. Let marinate for at least 5 minutes; this part can be made ahead and stored in the refrigerator overnight. Stir well to redistribute dressing before assembling mason jar.

To assemble, layer the following ingredients in each small mason jar (16-ounce size works well), in this order: 1 cup of bean and rice salad, ¼ diced avocado (toss avocado pieces in a bit of lime juice to prevent discoloration), ½ cup Sprinkles™, ¼ cup chopped cilantro. Place lid on the mason jar and keep refrigerated until ready to serve.

To serve, keep the lid on, shake the jar well to mix contents slightly and enjoy straight from the jar anywhere on the go. If you’re feeling fancy, bring your favorite bowl to the office, pour salad into it, toss to combine and savor your lunch hour.
