You'll never look at black beans the same way again after you've tasted this zesty, aromatic spin on a Mexican classic! We're sharing all the tricks to maximizing bean bowl flavour – from using both the zest and juice of fresh lime to our handy Enchilada Spice Blend. Even the rice gets a boost with fresh cilantro, while our fuss-free guacamole is the perfect tanging topping.

Before starting, wash and dry all produce. Core, then cut peppers into 1/2-inch pieces. Drain and rinse beans. Zest lime, then cut into wedges. Peel, then mince or grate garlic. Peel, then cut half the onion into 1/4-inch slices (whole onion for 4 ppl).Roughly chop cilantro.
Add 1 1/4 cups water and 1/8 tsp salt (dbl both for 4 ppl) to a medium pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, add rice, then reduce heat to low. Cover and cook until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min. Remove the pot from heat. Set aside, still covered.
Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then onions and peppers. Cook, stirring often, until peppers are tender-crisp, 2-3 min. Add garlic and Enchilada Spice Blend. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 1 min.
Add beans, broth concentrate, half the lime zest and 1/4 cup water (dbl for 4 ppl) to the pan with veggies. Cook, stirring occasionally, until beans softened, 4-5 min. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Fluff rice with a fork, then stir in half the cilantro and remaining lime zest. Season with salt, to taste. Divide rice and black bean mixture between bowls. Dollop guacamole and sour cream over top. Sprinkle with remaining cilantro. Squeeze a lime wedge over top, if desired.
