Ground Beef and Brown Rice Mexican Skillet (print recipe)
What you need:
1 pound lean ground beef
1/2 cup onion, diced
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
1 bell pepper, diced
1- 15.25 ounce can black beans, rinsed
1- 14.5 ounce can beef broth
1- 14.5 ounce can chili ready tomatoes
2 teaspoons cumin
1 3/4 cup instant brown rice
salt and pepper, as desired
3/4 cup pepper jack cheese, shredded
In a large saucepan, cook the ground beef, onion, garlic, bell pepper, salt and pepper until ground beef is cooked through. Add the black beans, broth, tomatoes and cumin, bring to a boil. Add the rice and reduce heat to a simmer. Cover and cook until the rice is done and liquid is absorbed, about 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle with cheese, cover and remove from heat, letting cheese melt.
