If you haven’t figured it out by now, I love Mexican food of all kinds. Mexican, Baja, Southwest, Santa Fe…I adore it all! This Southwest Skillet Beef & Rice is a meal I’ve made for years, but I decided to try it as a one-pot meal. I was so glad I did. So easy and just as delicious.

Southwest Skillet Beef & Rice

Servings: 4
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 25 minutes

1 1/2 lb. ground beef
1 1/2 cups uncooked white rice

1 tsp. minced garlic (or to taste)

Sprinkle chili powder over meat mixture along with jalapenos. Stir in 2 cups of water. Pour in uncooked rice and bring to a boil. Lower to a rolling simmer.

4. Allow to simmer for 10 minutes or until rice is tender and water gone.

Serve with a dollop of sour cream if you like.
