Spanish rice with meat and beans

     We had a Mexican Fiesta, the other night.  Sometimes I just want it, you know??  I love how this dish turned out.  It was a perfect blend of rice, a little meat and beans, and seasonings.  Give it a try!  It’s quite simple.


½ lb ground meat (beef, sausage or pork)

1 T olive oil

¼ cup chopped onion

1 clove minced garlic

3 sweet mini peppers, chopped

1 cup uncooked rice

¼ cup chopped red bell pepper

1 large tomato, diced

1 can chicken broth

2 TBSP tomato paste (Freeze remainder)

1 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp chili powder

½ tsp coriander

¼ tsp cayenne pepper

½ can beans, black or kidney

Grated Mexican cheese


In a large heavy skillet, add oil.  Brown ground meat along with peppers, garlic, and onion.  You shouldn’t have much grease, if any.  Add rice and diced tomato.  Sauté for a few minutes.  Add chicken broth, cover, and simmer 20 minutes.  Add drained beans and seasonings, and cook until no more liquid remains.  Top with Mexican grated cheese.


NOTE:  Since I don’t like tomato plants in my belly, I quarter the tomato, hold each quarter over the sink and push the seeds out with my thumbs.
