15 minCook

5 minPrep



  • 1 8oz pouch Daring Cajun Pieces
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice or quinoa
  • 1/3 cup canned corn
  • 1/3 cup no-salt-added black beans
  • 1 medium avocado
  • 1 cup spinach
  • ¼ cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds)


  • 2 tsp adobo sauce from canned chipotle
  • peppers in adobo sauce (or less depending on level of spice you prefer)
  • 1 cup unsweetened plain vegan yogurt
  • Juice of one lime
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Step 1

Heat a frying pan on medium-high heat for 1 minute, then reduce to medium heat. Drizzle pan with 1.5-2 tbsp cooking oil and sear the Daring Cajun Pieces for 2-3 minutes per side. They are done when they have a nice golden-brown color to them.

Step 2

Once Daring is done cooking, cut into bite-size pieces.

Step 3

Cook the rice or quinoa according to packaging instructions.

Step 4

For the dressing, place all ingredients in a bowl and mix until well combined. Refrigerate until you are ready to serve. It should last up to 7 days refrigerated.

Step 5

If you are eating this dish immediately, heat the corn and black beans in a saucepan or in the microwave. If you are preparing this dish ahead of time, you can skip this step.

Step 6

Build your bowls: In 2 separate serving or storage dishes, add ½ cup spinach, then top with 1 cup of the cooked brown rice or quinoa, followed by the corn and beans, Daring pieces, and avocado.
