Ingredients

  • 1 lb. lean ground beef (15% fat)
  • 1/3 cup onion chopped
  • 1/3 cup green pepper chopped
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup long grain white rice
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder (or 4 cloves garlic, minced)
  • 1 tbsp. chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 15 oz. canned diced tomatoes with liquid
  • 15 oz. canned whole kernel corn drained (or about 1 1/2 cups frozen)
  • 15 oz. canned red kidney beans drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese grated

Directions

  1. Cook ground beef, onion, and green pepper in a large skillet over medium heat (300°F in an electric skillet) until hamburger is no longer pink. Drain excess fat from pan.
  2. Add water, rice, garlic, chili powder, salt, pepper, tomatoes with liquid, corn, and beans.
  3. Cook covered for about 20 minutes or until rice is soft.
  4. Remove from stove top, sprinkle with grated cheese, and serve.
  5. Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.

Recipe Notes

  • Garnish with 1 tbsp. low-fat sour cream.
  • Flavor boosters: add green chilies, jalapeños, or more garlic.
  • Make extra! Leftovers make a great filling for tacos, burritos, stuffed bell peppers, or use as a topping for baked potatoes.
  • Use brown rice instead of white rice and increase cooking time to 45 minutes or until rice is cooked to get more whole grains!
