A one-pan (skillet) Mexican style rice with beef and beans that’s topped with plenty of melted cheese!
I’m a big fan of one-pan meals, a complete meal made in one pan, and this Mexican beef and rice skillet is my current favourite. It includes so many tasty ingredients and it’s super easy to make. It starts out by cooking ground beef in a skillet along with onions and a pepper before seasoning it with taco seasoning, so it’s basically taco meat at this point. Rice, beans, salsa and water are mixed in before covering and cooking just like regular rice, with some of the cooking liquid coming from the salsa and all of the flavours of the taco beef and salsa mix into everything. I like to add corn to the mix at this point before covering with shredded cheese and cooking a bit more until the cheese has melted! Yum! The Mexican beef and bean rice is perfect as a complete meal all by itself or topped with tomatoes, avocado, sour cream, cilantro, etc.
