    • 1 cup Long Grain White Rice
    • 2 15.5-Oz Cans Black Beans
    • ½ lb Grape Tomatoes
    • 6 oz Baby Spinach
    • 2 oz Sliced Pickled Jalapeño Pepper
    • ½ cup Sour Cream
    • ½ cup Guacamole
    • 4 oz Shredded Cheddar & Monterey Jack Cheese Blend
    • ½ cup Cilantro Sauce
    • ⅓ cup Crispy Onions
    • 1 Tbsp Mexican Spice Blend (Ancho Chile Powder, Smoked Paprika, Garlic Powder, Ground Cumin & Dried Mexican Oregano)
    • 12 Flour Tortillas
    • 2 Single-Use Aluminum Trays
    Prepare the ingredients & make the base
    1 Prepare the ingredients & make the base

    Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Carefully rinse the rice (sifting through for any impurities). Drain thoroughly. Drain and rinse the beans. Between the two trays, evenly divide the spinach, rice, drained beans, tomatoes, spice blend, cilantro sauce, and as much of the pepper as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be. Stir to combine. Add 1 cup of water to each tray. Season with salt and pepper; stir to thoroughly combine.

    Add the chorizo & bake the tray
    2 Add the chorizo & bake the tray

    Add the chorizo (tearing into bite-sized pieces before adding) in an even layer on top of the prepared base. Tightly cover the trays with foil and bake 40 minutes. Leaving the oven on, remove from the oven. Carefully remove the foil. Evenly top with the cheese. Return to the oven and bake, uncovered, 5 to 7 minutes, or until the rice is tender, the cheese is melted, and the chorizo is cooked through. Remove from the oven.

    Warm the tortillas & serve your dish
    3 Warm the tortillas & serve your dish

    Meanwhile, if you prefer to use a microwave, wrap the tortillas in a damp paper towel and microwave on high 1 minute, or until heated through. If you prefer to use the oven, wrap the tortillas in foil and place directly onto an oven rack; warm 7 to 9 minutes, or until heated through. Transfer to a work surface and carefully unwrap. Serve the baked trays with the warmed tortillas. Top with the sour cream, guacamole, and crispy onions. Enjoy!
