How to Make Tasty Beef - N - Rice Skillet


  1. Cook rice according to package directions.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook the beef, onion and garlic over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain.
  3. Stir in the rice, beans, broth, tomato sauce, chili powder, salt, cumin, chiles, corn and pepper; heat through. This pic is missing the rice...oops!
  4. Sprinkle with cheese, cover and cook until cheese is melted - sometimes I set under broiler.

    I leave this set for 5 minutes to thicken up.
  5. Serve by itself or with your favorite toppings.
