  1. In a bowl combine 1 tsp. oil, 1/2 tsp oregano, 1 tsp cumin, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, and 1/2 tsp paprika. Add chicken thighs and let marinate 15 minutes. Grill on medium-high heat until cooked through. Let cool for 10 minutes then cut into bite size pieces.
  2. Cook rice according to directions. When rice and corn only have 10 minutes, begin sauteing the veggies. In a skillet, combine the rest of the oil, peppers, and onion. Saute for 5 minutes and then stir in the remaining spices. Cook for an additional 5 minutes. When rice is done stir in the cilantro, lime juice and zest, and a pinch of salt. Stir until fluffy.
  3. Assemble the bowls by dividing the rice, top with veggies, chicken, then black beans. Sprinkle with the corn and top with avocado and sour cream if desired. Enjoy!
