Chorizo and Rice Meal Prep is a quick meal idea made with Mexican-style pork chorizo, corn, black beans and Minute® Ready to Serve Brown & Wild Rice topped with cotija cheese and a fresh cilantro garnish.




  • fresh cilantro, chopped (optional)


  1. Remove chorizo from casing and cook on stovetop on a medium high heat for 5 minutes. Mince well.
  2. Add the strained corn and black beans. Mix in with chorizo and let cook for another 2 minutes.
  3. As the chorizo is cooking on the stovetop, heat up the Minute® Ready to Serve Brown & Wild Rice cups in the microwave two at a time with tops removed for 90 seconds. Repeat for the other two cups.
  4. Place the cooked chorizo mixture in a mixing bowl with the Minute® Ready to Serve Brown & Wild Rice. Mix together.
  5. Serve and top with some crumbled cotija cheese and fresh cilantro.


Meal prepping: if not serving immediately, place Chorizo and Rice back into the cups after mixing. Top with the crumbled cotija cheese and cilantro. Cool. Cover with foil and place into refrigerator. To reheat, remove foil and reheat for 60 seconds for one cup.
