  2. Add to the fry pan with the spices and stir well
  3. Cook for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the corn just starts to char

I know that list of ingredients and steps looks very long, but I promise you it’s simple! While the rice is cooking you can get pretty much everything else done, and everything reheats well too which is something that is always important to me. Plus it’s packed with colour, flavour and textures – seriously what’s not to love about this jackfruit burrito bowl!

This is definitely an excellent summer evening dinner option with fresh corn, tomatoes and capsicums adding so much delicious flavour. I was extra lucky that mum’s lime tree was covered in fruit so I had plenty of lime juice to go around too!
