1 15 oz. Can Banana Blossoms (Drained, Rinsed, and Sliced)

1/2 Cup Corn

2 Plum Tomatoes (Diced)

1 Red Onion (Diced)

2 Cloves Garlic (Minced)

1 Romaine Lettuce Head (Chopped)

1 Can Black Beans (Rinsed)

1 Jalapeño (Diced)

1 Lime (Zested and Juiced)

1 Bunch Fresh Cilantro (Chopped)

23 Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce (Chopped)

1 Avocado (Sliced)

1 Cup Rice

Vegan Sour Cream (Try this Classic Tofu Sour Cream)

Dry Spices:

1 tsp smoked paprika

1/2 tsp ground coriander

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp ground cumin

1/2 tsp red pepper flakes


  1. Wash and prepare all of the fresh produce. Cook the rice as per the directions on the package.
  2. While the rice cooks, combine the corn, tomato, ½ of the jalapeño and ¼ of the cilantro in a small bowl to make a homemade pico de gallo. Set Aside.
  3. In a deep frying pan, sauté the onion, garlic, and rest of the jalapeño over medium-high heat, until fragrant. (Approximately 3 minutes.)
  4. Add the chopped banana blossoms, chipotle peppers, and dry spices to the pan and stir to combine. Continue cooking and stirring until thoroughly heated. (Approximately 5 min.)
  5. Zest and juice the lime. Stir the juice and zest into the cooked rice along with ½ of the rest of the chopped cilantro.
  6. Serve by first layering the rice and then adding the rest of the ingredients to the bowl. Garnish with the remaining cilantro and vegan sour cream, if using.
  7. Serve immediately while warm and enjoy!
