Remove from the stove and cut into cubes

Move to Rice

Boil water in a large pot and add oil, salt, and pepper and rice into it. Reduce the flame and cover the pot until rice absorbed water and became tender. Add cilantro and fluff the rice using a fork.

Time to guacamole and tomato salsa

Mash avocado in a bowl and add half of the minced cilantro, onion, jalapeno, lime juice and season with salt and pepper. Mix until avocadoes are mashed properly.
