Mexi Ground Beef-Rice Skillet

"This is quite tasty, the jalapeno pepper is only optional I like to add in for extra heat, Italian sausages with the casings removed may be used in place of the ground beef or use ground turkey, I also like to add in some cooked crumbled bacon or smoked dry sliced sausage but that is only optional :)"

    Don't use Minute Rice in this, it's mush after 25 minutes of simmering while the zucchini was still crisp tender. I knew that going in and still did it. Big mistake. Next time, I'll use long grain rice. I can't believe so many people didn't complain about that. Otherwise, it was pretty tasty.

    This was good had to change a lot because I didn't have some of the ingredients I used corn and black beans. I had to use regular rice as I never buy minute rice. I added diced seasoned tomatoes and extra stock for the extra moisture needed for the rice. I would make it again but I would cut it in half it was a lot for just 2 people. I will probably freeze some of it
