  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 cup yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 1-oz. package taco seasoning
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 1 10-oz. can Rotel tomatoes and green chilies, undrained
  • 1 15-oz. can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar jack cheese, plus extra for serving
  • sour cream, for serving if desired
  • cilantro leaves, as garnish, if desired
  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook ground beef and onion, breaking up the meat with a spoon. Cook until the beef is no longer pink and the onion is translucent. Drain.

  2. Add the taco seasoning, water, tomatoes with green chilies, pinto beans and rice. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer the mixture, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until almost all the water has evaporated, about 5-7 minutes. Stir in the cheese until melted. Remove from the heat. Garnish with cilantro leaves, if desired. Serve with extra cheese and sour cream.
