Texas Beef Skillet

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Karen From Colorado

Convenient 1 pan meal. I found this recipe in an old cookbook along time ago. Kids love it! The original was not as spicy as I make it but I like the flavor better with the added ingredients. To make it even spicier, add some jalapeños instead of the green chili. I also add frozen corn once in awhile.

This is a quick recipe to fix and above all very tastey. Everyone in the family liked it. I like the green chilis in this recipe. My daughter wanted more rice in it. You should be able to add another 1/2 cup rice and some water.
