With the passing of Halloween, we are now in the midst of the holidays, and all of the busy-ness and craziness that come with them. At times like this, it's important to have some quick go to meals--things you can keep on hand and throw together in just a few minutes. This one is top of the list for my family:
Mexican Beef with Rice
2 1/2 cups white rice (or 2 cups brown rice)
5 cups water
1 15 ounce can tomato sauce or diced tomatoes
1 lb. of browned ground beef (I actually use ground turkey)
1 tbsp. chili powder
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. salt
Put all ingredients in a big pot or a rice cooker (not steamer) and bring to a boil. Simmer until the rice is done.
or use your imagination...
