Ingredients
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 lb 93% lean ground beef
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 can diced tomatoes with green chilis
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 cup dry brown rice
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup low-sodium beef stock
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 cup 2% shredded cheddar or jack cheese
  • 4 green onions, sliced, to garnish
Instructions
  1. Over medium heat, heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Once hot, add the beef and cook until little pink remains, breaking up with a wooden spoon, about 5 minutes.
  2. To the skillet, add the onion and diced bell peppers. Cook until softened and beef is cooked through, about 5 minutes. Add the can of diced tomatoes, salsa, and brown rice; cook 1-2 minutes, stirring well to allow the rice to absorb the flavors. Add the beef stock, cumin, cayenne, chili powder, garlic powder, and smoked paprika; stir well.
  3. Cover and cook 35-45 minutes, stirring every 5-10 minutes, until liquid is absorbed. Top with cheese and sliced green onions before serving.
