    JT'sMom's Note:

    A great one pan meal when you're just too tired to cook, add a salad, garlic or corn bread, and dinner is done. It's very budget and kid friendly. You can double it and freeze half for another night. I always make this the day before we go camping for our first nights dinner. I bring flour tortillas, and containers of sour cream, shredded cheese, sliced jalapenos, cilantro, and salsa; we make burritos with it. Just heat it on the camp stove or over the fire and you have an easy, filling meal after setting up camp.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat; saute onion, peppers, and garlic, stirring frequently, about 3 - 4 minutes, remove to a small bowl and set aside.
    2. 2
      Add ground beef to the same skillet, breaking it into pieces, and saute until no longer pink; drain off excess fat if desired; add chili powder, (or chili seasoning mix), and reserved sauteed vegetables; stir well to combine.
    3. 3
      Add V8 juice (or tomato juice if using), undrained kidney beans, oregano, cumin, salt, and rice; stir well and bring to a boil. Lower heat to maintain a simmer, cover and simmer for about 25 minutes, until rice is cooked. (check half way through making sure mixture is not sticking, add a little water if necessary).
    4. 4
      Stir in corn and olives; cover and cook for 5 more minutes.
    5. 5
      Sprinkle cheese on top and cover just until the cheese is melted.
    6. 6
      NOTE: This recipe is very forgiving, it's hard to mess it up. I usually adjust the seasonings according to how much ground beef I am using, You can add more or less spices to suit your taste, substitute black beans for kidney beans. more onion, less peppers, a jalapeno, etc -- Just make sure you add enough juice to cook the rice (you may want to check after about 10 - 15 minutes and, if needed add some more juice or water). The above measurements work well for 1 pound of ground beef. I tend to use the larger measure of spices, (sometimes more), it just depends on your taste. It makes a great filling for burritos.
