Prepare rice according to package directions. Allow to cool completely.
Whisk together lime juice, mayonnaise, sour cream, lime zest, 1 teaspoon chili powder, garlic, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Add rice and corn to bowl, tossing to coat well.
Add cheese, cilantro, onion, half of the green onions, avocado, and jalapeño. Stir gently to combine.
Sprinkle salad with remaining green onions and remaining chili powder.
If you don’t have queso fresco on hand, use feta cheese, instead.
To cool your rice quickly, spread it evenly on a parchment paper–lined baking sheet.
