Stop what you're doing.
No, seriously. 
You need to put down whatever you're doing and go and make this recipe! 
It is seriously that good.

Black Bean, Cilantro and Lime Rice Bowl
2 Cups brown rice, chilled
2 15 oz. cans black beans, drained and rinsed
2 cups diced tomatoes (about 3 roma tomatoes)
1 bunch green onions, sliced
3 T Canola oil
3 T red wine vinegar
3 T water
Juice of a fresh lime
1 small jalapeno
1/2 cup cilantro (or if you love it like I do, closer to 1 cup)
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1 avocado
1/4 cup shredded cheese

1. In large bowl combine chilled rice, beans, tomatoes and green onions.
2. In small bowl whisk oil, vinegar, water, lime juice, jalapeno, cilantro, sugar and salt.
3. Pour dressing over rice and toss to coat. Cover and let sit at room temp for 30 minutes or so.
4. Top with cheese and avocado.

This recipe serves 4 as a main dish or 6 as a side dish.
