Directions:

  1. I like to grill the steak on my George Foreman grill if it’s cold out. Otherwise my husband will grill it outside.
  2. Once my steak is ready I let it cool and work on the rice. Wash your rice until the water runs clear. Once it is dumped into your pot (I use my Instant Pot) use a 1:1 ratio of water to cook. Example: ½ cup of rice=½ cup of water- 2 cups of rice=2 cups of water
  3. Shake a small amount of salt in and let it cook for about 15-20 minutes.
  4. Cut open your avocado and scoop it in a small bowl. Slice a few tiny pieces of your onion and tomato if you like texture in your guacamole. Squeeze in ¼ of a lime, add your tomatoes, onion, cilantro, salt, pepper, and a dash of garlic. Mash it all in and set aside.
  5. Next pour a drizzle of olive oil over medium heat and chop up half of a medium green bell pepper and half of a red onion. Once the oil is hot, heat it in your pan, stir in the oil and season with salt and pepper. Cook it to your satisfaction of softness.
  6. Chop up lettuce, tomato and set out the cheese and sour cream.
  7. If you haven’t already, chop up your steak into bite sized pieces.
  8. Once your rice is ready take your 1 tablespoon of cilantro and ¼ of your lime (¼ of a lime per ½ cup of rice) and squeeze it into your rice. Stir into the rice and dish into your bowls.
  9. Layer your bowl up with all of the goodies, and enjoy.
