This combination of meat, rice and seasonings is a staple in our house- its cheap, doesn’t take much time and super flavorful!

What you’ll need:

1 lb. lean ground beef

1 large clove of garlic minced

2 green bell peppers, seeded and diced

vegetable oil

1 cup of rice (white or brown) cooked

2 Tbs. butter

Cumin powder, Chili powder, Dried Oregano, Chopped fresh Cilantro, Salt and pepper.

1.) Saute the garlic and diced peppers in a few Tbs. vegetable oil on medium heat until the pepper soften up.  Add the ground beef, breaking it up into smaller pieces.

2.) When the meat is cooked, add the cooked rice along with the 2 Tbs. butter and turn down the heat to low.  Add the chopped cilantro, cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper to taste.  Add a pinch of dried oregano.  Let the flavors meld for a few minutes on low heat, stirring occasionally.

3.) Serve with soft or hard taco shells, sour cream, guacamole, cheese, salsa, fresh lime, etc…
