We love these Cilantro Jalapeño Lime Protein Bowls. They're delicious, customizable and so simple to make, since all the flavor comes from one awesome ingredient: our Cilantro Jalapeño Lime Sauce. Use this Pace® Signature Sauce flavor to make a quick bean and corn salsa (no prep, just mix), then drizzle the rest on top of bowls piled high with hot cooked rice, the bean and corn salsa, chicken and your favorite toppings. We love avocado, queso fresco, green onion and cilantro, but you can change it up to suit your taste. Tip: Serve the toppings on the side so that everyone can make their own!


  • 1 1/2 cups Swanson® Natural Goodness® Chicken Broth
  • 3/4 cup uncooked long grain white rice
  • 1 cup frozen whole kernel corn, thawed and well drained
  • 1 cup drained rinsed canned black beans

  • 2 green onion, sliced (about 1/4 cup)
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro


  • Step 1

    Heat the broth in a 2-quart saucepan over medium-high heat to a boil.  Stir in the rice.  Reduce the heat to low.  Cover and cook for 20 minutes or until the rice is tender.
