- Gradually add the chicken broth; constantly whisk to ensure no clumps of flour.

- While the sauce is simmering, add lime juice and fresh chopped cilantro to the cooked brown rice and blend together.

- Divide the rice into 4 portions. Divide the black bean and corn mixture into 4 portions.
- Add a layer of ¼ of the rice to a bowl, top with ¼ of the bean and corn mixture. Add a shredded chicken breast and drizzle approximately ¼ cup of red burrito sauce over the entire dish.
- If desired, add 1 tablespoon of shredded, reduced fat cheddar cheese and garnish with fresh cilantro.
