Tex – Mex Fried Rice

Apparently you can buy frozen cooked white rice at the grocery store and if that’s true then this would be a legit one pot meal.

1 pound lean ground beef

1 (1 oz) package taco seasoning mix

1/2 cup water

1/4 cup oil

1 onion, chopped

1 red bell pepper, chopped

1 can corn, drained

1 can black beans, drained and rinsed

1/2 teaspoon salt

3 cups cooked white rice

1 can chopped green chiles

1 cup shredded Monterey Jack or cheddar cheese

toppings – avocado, cilantro, green onions, salsa, sour cream, crumbled tortilla chips

1  In a large skillet, cook hamburger, stirring frequently, until no longer pink, about 5 – 7 minutes.  Drain and return to skillet.  Stir in taco seasoning and water, heat to simmering over medium heat.  Cook 1 – 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thickened.  Remove meat from skillet.

2  Add oil to skillet and heat over medium high heat.  Add onion, bell pepper, corn, black beans, and salt.  Cook 7 – 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until veggies are tender and beginning to brown at edges.

3  Add rice and green chiles, cook 4 – 6 minutes, stirring frequently, until heated through.  Stir in beef and cook 1 – 2 minutes until hot.  Remove pan from heat.

4  Sprinkle with cheese.  Cover and let stand 1 – 3 minutes or until cheese melts.  Top with desired toppings.
