  • Combine spices with the vegetables in a large bowl or plastic bag. Sprinkle mixture liberally with salt and pepper to taste. Toss to evenly coat.

  • Add corn to the baking sheet with the vegetables, toss to combine, and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes or until roasted to desired tenderness. Be sure not to overcook so the veggies don’t burn!
  • Assemble bowls by dividing the rice, beans, taco meat, vegetables, corn and optional toppings.
