Arroz Rojo with Beef

Super easy dinner that the whole family loved!  Great leftovers, too!


3/4 lb lean ground beef
1 chopped onion (about 1 cup)
1 chopped bell pepper (I used green, but any color would add a nice flavor)
1 3/4 cup beef broth or stock
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
1 Tbs Mexican blend seasoning (for a spicier option substitute chili powder)
1/2 tsp garlic powder
3/4 cup uncooked regular long-grain white rice
Shredded cheddar cheese (optional)
Sour cream (optional)


Cook beef, onion, and bell pepper in a large skillet until meat is browned. Pour off any fat.

Stir broth, tomato sauce, seasoning, and garlic powder into meat mixture. Heat to boil. Stir in rice. Reduce heat to low and cover, cooking until rice is tender, about 20 minutes. Serve with cheese and sour cream (optional).

Serves 4
