    Shuzbud's Note:

    Since starting Weight Watchers, I have missed the flavour of Mexican foods. But with calorie-filled toppings and wraps, they're not always diet-friendly. So I came up with this meal- it has the flavours of Mexican food without the majority of the calories and if you have extra points, you can even add a little guacamole or sour cream on top! It's worth using fresh salsa, not the jarred stuff for this recipe- it adds a lovely fresh bright flavour. Using extra lean beef, this recipe has a total of 19 Weight Watchers points by British points calculations.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Finely chop the red onion and green pepper and set aside.
    2. 2
      Put the beef stock in a saucepan and heat to boiling. Add the rice and cook, covered, until done (for my brand of rice this takes around 25 minutes).
    3. 3
      Meanwhile, in a non-stick skillet start to brown the ground beef for 3 minutes.
    4. 4
      Add the chopped red onion and bell pepper and cook, stirring, for a further 7 minutes.
    5. 5
      Add the frozen corn and cook for 3 minutes more.
    6. 6
      Add the water and taco spice mix. Turn down the heat and cook until the meat is done and the liquid is almost completely absorbed. This takes 5-10 minutes.
    7. 7
      Meanwhile check on the rice- it should be nearly done. Remove from the heat when cooked and the liquid is absorbed.
    8. 8
      When the meat mixture is cooked, stir in the rice.
    9. 9
      Turn off the heat and stir in the salsa. Serve immediately, topped with coriander/ cilantro if desired.

      This has really nice flavor and one of those recipes that are easily adjusted to your families taste. I used jalapeno for the bell pepper for more kick and also used homemade taco seasoning and yes, I used jarred Pace picante sauce for the salsa and it worked out great. I halved the recipe all but the rice and this made 1.5 quarts, easily 6 servings!, I plan on freezing the leftovers for another day. I served it up burrito style using large flour tortillas. It would also be great served over cornbread. While this recipe (as written) may be low in fat, it still has a whopping 600 calories per serving, but since the full recipe realistically would serve 8, it is sure to be closer to around 250 calories per 1-cup servings. The flavor and ease of preparation gives this a well deserving 5-stars. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

      I used ground turkey, homemade taco seasoning, & brown rice, but otherwise followed the recipe. This reminded me of skillet meals (only better.) Add a salad & dinner's ready! Good salsa is the key I think. Thank you for sharing the recipe! Made for ZWT7.
