Enjoyed this for lunch today. 93% lean ground beef was used to reduce some of the fat calories. I used Italian stewed tomatoes and thought this gave a nice, slightly sweet flavor to the dish. I cooked mine just a little different using a lid throughout the process to prevent the skillet from boiling dry. In step 2, I left out the peas and tomatoes until the rice was tender. After the first 10 minutes of cooking, I gave the mixture a stir and added about 1/2 cup more water. Stirring again 5 minutes later, at this time I added the tomatoes and *frozen* peas. I continued to cook for another 3 then 2, minutes stirring each time. Topped with the cheese and placed the lid on for another 5 minutes, no heat. Thank you for posting.
