I don't know about you, but our family loves Tacos! In fact, we love Tex-Mex food! It might have something to do with the fact we live in Texas, but truth be known, we eat something in the Tex-Mex family at least once a week! So, I have to get creative, even though there is NOTHING wrong just good ol regular tacos!
So, today I really have a quick one pot dinner for you that you can serve any day of the week, not just on Tuesdays! And if you are like me, just a regular wife and mother who wants to put something tasty on the table even after working a full day of work this is a good recipe to have the ingredients on hand for any night of the week. Double it and you can serve a crowd! I often like to serve Pinto Beans, salsa and chips on the side. Top if you'd like with shredded lettuce, sour cream, and pickled jalapeno slices for an even tastier addition.
1 pound of lean ground beef
1 box of Zatarains Spanish Rice
2 cans of diced tomatoes and green chilis
1 can of fire roasted green chilis
1 packet taco seasoning
Chopped green onions1 cup + more for topping Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
1. In a soup pot, brown ground beef until no longer pink.
2. Dump in rice mix (with water and butter as directed on back of box), tomatoes, chilis, taco seasoning and allow to boil for a good minute or two, then reduce to low, cover and cook until most of the liquid is absorbed. (This will take about 15 to 20 minutes or so)
3. Dump in green onions and 1 cup of cheese (I often use more but I like it cheesy), stir and allow to sit for about 5-7 minutes.
4. Serve on up with your picking of toppings.
