Instructions

  1. 
Heat 2 T oil until hot. Add onion and garlic; sauté 4-6 minutes or until soft. Add pico, corn, fajita blend veggies, and green chiles; cook for 5-7 minutes or until liquid has evaporated. Add remaining oil, rice, and seasonings.
  2. Cook rice mixture 4 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently to blend the rice and seasonings.
 Move rice mixture to the side of the pan and, in the open space, cook eggs, stirring to scramble. Mix scrambled eggs into rice mixture.
  3. Serve with cheese. Customize with additional optional toppings such as guacamole, chopped cilantro, queso, chopped green onions, sliced black olives, or salsa.
Recipe Notes

For vegan, omit eggs and cheese.

To cook rice in an instant pot, add 1.5 cups brown rice and 1.5 cups water to the instant pot.  Lock lid; set valve to sealing.  Program for manual-high and 22 minutes.  Use either quick release or natural pressure release at your option.

This recipe would make an excellent make-ahead lunch prep!  Make as directed early in the week and divide among individual lunch containers.  To reheat, simply microwave.
