    • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
    • Salt to taste

    For the Corn Salsa:

    • 1 cup corn kernels (fresh, frozen, or canned)
    • 1/4 cup diced red onion
    • 1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
    • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
    • Juice of 1 lime
    • Salt and pepper to taste

    For Assembly:

    • Shredded lettuce
    • Sliced jalapeños (optional)
    • Lime wedges
    • Sour cream or Greek yogurt (optional)
    • Salsa or hot sauce (optional)


    Prepare the Cauliflower Rice:

    In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes, or until fragrant.

    Add the riced cauliflower to the skillet and sprinkle with ground cumin, salt, and pepper.

    Cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the cauliflower is tender and lightly browned. Remove from heat and set aside.

    Prepare the Black Beans:

    In a small saucepan, combine the black beans, ground cumin, chili powder, and a pinch of salt.

    Heat over medium heat until warmed through. Remove from heat and set aside.

    Prepare the Corn Salsa:

    In a medium bowl, combine the corn kernels, diced red onion, diced red bell pepper, chopped cilantro, lime juice, salt, and pepper. Toss until well combined. Set aside.

    Assemble the Burrito Bowls:

    Divide the cauliflower rice, black beans, and corn salsa evenly among serving bowls.

    Top each bowl with avocado slices, diced tomatoes, shredded lettuce, sliced jalapeños (if using), and a squeeze of fresh lime juice.

    Serve the burrito bowls with sour cream or Greek yogurt, salsa or hot sauce, if desired.
