big hit with everyone!
I love it when that happens...because it seems like SOMEONE in our family (...a cute little opinionated 4 year old), turns his nose up at most anything that is not Mac N Cheese these days!
Anyone know the feeling?
What makes it even better, is that it is gluten free, so our whole crew can enjoy it....which has become a requirement around here.
I have made it twice so far, and the last time, we decided that when I make it again, I should do a double batch!
Black Beans, Beef and Rice
4 slices of bacon, cut into 1" pieces
1 lb. lean ground beef
1/2 c chopped onion
green pepper, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1C long grain rice
14.5 oz. can diced tomatoes, undrained
15.5 oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 1/2 t dried Italian seasoning
1C shredded mozzarella cheese
Cook bacon in large skillet on medium heat. Add beef, onion, pepper, and garlic. Cook, stirring often, until beef has browned. Add water, rice, tomatoes, beans, Italian seasoning, and salt. Mix well. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until liquid is absorbed and rice is done (20 min. or so). Sprinkle with cheese
Give it a try, and I bet it will be a crowd pleaser at your house too!
