In small saucepan, cover rice and 1/4 tsp of the salt with 1-1/2 cups water; bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until rice is tender and no liquid remains, about 10 minutes. Turn off heat; let stand on burner for 5 minutes. Fluff with fork.

Meanwhile, stir together chili powder, cumin, coriander, oregano, pepper and remaining salt; set aside.

In large skillet, heat oil over medium heat; cook red onion and green onions, stirring occasionally, until slightly softened, about 2 minutes. Stir in chili powder mixture and garlic; cook, stirring, for 1 minute.

Add black beans, corn and 1 cup water; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until almost no liquid remains and corn is heated through, about 3 minutes. Stir in lime juice.

Divide rice among bowls; top with bean mixture, avocado, tomato and cilantro.
