Mexican Rice

Pin It This is one of my go-to, one pot wonder weeknight meals.  It takes under 30 minutes to make and it makes enough to feed a crowd so you have guaranteed lunch leftovers for a few days.  It also uses ingredients that I usually have on hand so I can whip it up quick.  Hope you enjoy it as much as we do :)

Mexican Rice
1 lb ground beef
1 box Spanish rice mix
1 can diced tomatoes with green chiles, undrained
1 can corn, drained
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
3/4 cup shredded Mexican cheese
sour cream
taco sauce
green onions

1. In a large skillet brown ground beef.  Drain and set aside.
2. In the same skillet cook rice according to box directions, using the can of tomatoes with chiles.
3. When rice is done add corn, beans and beef.  Stir to mix.  Flatten the top of the mixture and sprinkle with cheese.  Cover to let the cheese melt.
4. Serve with sour cream, taco sauce and green onions.
