Couscous Mexican Bowl

This is perfect for quick lunch or diner. There is so many ways you can make this but I go for this way and believe me with chopping and cooking and eating it was done in 10 minutes. It was Thursday night and that's Mexican food night in my house since so long but didn't wanted to go for any cheesy mexican dishes so take a spin of regular couscous salad to Mexican way. Only thing I was missing was Avacado. You can chopped in bite size pieces and put it on top and it taste amazing so next time when  I will make this, I will make sure I have avocado to put it

Ingredients :

1 onion chopped
1 carrot chopped
3-4 garlic cloves chopped
1 Jalapenos chopped
1 Red pepper chopped
4 tbsp. Black beans boiled
4 tbsp. corn ( I used frozen)
1 can of Vegetable Broth
1 cup of Couscous
1 tbsp. Taco seasoning
1 tsp. Garlic powder
1 tsp. paprika powder
1 tbsp. oil
Salt to taste
Fresh coriander leaves chopped
Salsa

Method:

Heat a pan, Add oil in it.
Add garlic and jalapenos and cook it till oil gets all the flavor.
Add Onion and cook till its little pink.
Add one by one all vegetables and cook.
Add beans and corn and mix it.
Add taco seasoning, garlic powder and paprika powder and salt.
You are going to add can vegetable broth and it has sodium in it so keep that in mind, If you are using plain water then add salt that way.
Add whole can of broth and give a quick stir and let it come to little boil.
Add couscous and mix and cover the lid and shut off the gas.
Leave it as it is for five minutes.
After 5 minutes, take the lid off, sprinkle coriander leaves, lime juice, and fluff it with fork.
To serve take a bowl, take couscous, sprinkle more coriander leaves, fresh chopped jalapenos, salsa on top and enjoy.
