    • 2 bags UNCLE BEN’S® Boil-In-Bag Whole Grain Brown Rice
    • Nonstick cooking spray
    • Corn kernels from 2 medium ears of fresh corn (about 1-1/2 cups)
    • 10 ounces shrimp, peeled, deveined
    • 1-1/2 cups plum tomatoes, chopped
    • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice 
    • 3/4 teaspoon chili powder
    • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
    • 3/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 
    • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 2 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro
    • 1 ripe avocado, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes  


    1. Prepare rice according to package instructions. Place rice in a large serving bowl and cool slightly.

    5. Add the cilantro and avocado and toss very gently.
    6. Serve at room temperature.
