This was an idea that was a mix between a couple of different recipes and a fridge clean-out. It ended up being a family favorite.
It is super easy, with just one skillet on the stovetop. The add-in possibilities and varieties are endless.
1 pound Hamburger
1 red bell pepper, sliced
1 yellow onion, chopped
1 tbsp Mexican seasoning
2 cups cooked rice (could use Mexican rice or cauliflower rice)
10-12 oz salsa
1 cup Mexican blend cheese
2 tbsp chopped cilantro
Slice the pepper and chop the onion and set aside
In a stovetop pan, cook the hamburger, drain the grease, and set it aside.
Put the sliced peppers and onions into the pan, cook for 6-8 minutes until slightly tender.
Return the hamburger to the pan.
Add the seasoning and mix together.
Add cooked rice, salsa, cheese, and cilantro.
Mix together until well combined and heated through.
