Ground Beef and Brown Rice Mexican Skillet Recipe

Hello everyone! I hope y'all had a great weekend!! We had a wonderful weekend! On Saturday we walked in a parade collecting donations for the food shelf for Girl Scouts. Sunday was mostly spent at home cleaning, but we did go to the slash pad down the street for a couple hours! I love spending these summer days with my daughter!

Today's recipe is great for a week night dinner! I'm a huge Mexican food lover and am always trying to come up with some new recipes other than tacos and rice. I love the flavors and ingredients in this recipe and also love that it's a one dish meal, no piles of dirty dishes waiting to be washed! I hope you enjoy as much as we did!

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.
