Easy Mexican-Inspired Fried Rice

What you need: 

olive oil spray
1 small onion, diced
1 cup frozen corn
1/2 package Soyrizo
2 cup brown rice, cooked, day old
1 teaspoon cumin
garlic, pressed or minced
1/4 cup salsa
salt, to taste
lime wedges (optional)

What you do: 

Over medium heat, saute onion in olive oil spray until softened and beginning to change color. Add 2-3 cloves garlic and cook for a few more minutes. Add frozen corn and cook until beginning to brown. Add 1/2 package soyrizo and cook until hot and slightly browned. Add day old rice (that's what I used because I always have day old rice hanging around and it fries up better than fresh rice, but you could probably use fresh rice too). Add cumin, salt, and salsa to taste and cook until hot. Serve with optional lime wedges.
I wanted Mexican rice, but didn't have time to cook it properly, so I came up with this to serve with leftover cheesy bean and cheese enchiladas. It was a hit with my omni bf! :)
