Because it’s Thursday and we all need something simple to make for supper.
This recipe serves four.
1 pound of ground beef
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 (4 oz) can of chopped green chiles
2 cups of salsa
1 (15 oz) can of chili beans
about 10 green onions, chopped
about 1 1/2 cups grated Cheddar (I used sharp white cheddar)
1 cup of brown rice
2 cups of water
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
salt and pepper
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown up your ground beef in just a drizzle of EVOO. Once browned and crumbly, add in a pinch of salt and pepper along with your chili powder.
While beef is browning, add your water and rice to a small pot, cover and bring to a boil. Once it starts to boil, keep covered and reduce heat to low and allow the rice to cook up…about 10 to 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, add the chopped green chiles, salsa, chili beans and green onions to the ground beef mixture. Reduce heat to low and allow to simmer.
Once your rice has absorbed all of the water and is cooked, fluff it up with a fork and divide out among plates. Top rice with a big scoop of ground beef mixture and top with shredded cheese and perhaps a few extra chopped green onions.
Dinner is done.
You can also serve this yummy beef mixture over tortillas, quinoa, or even macaroni noodles!
Enjoy an easy supper tonight!
