A childhood remake...

Growing up my mom used to make something similar to this, but I never liked it...I could be a picky kid at times. Well I've grown up, and the other night I started thinking about this dish and wondered if I could remember how to make it. So I started throwing some things together that I remembered, added a few more ingredients and spices, and came up with my very own version. It tasted very different from my moms, but we all loved it.

I will warn you though, it makes a ton! I would definitely cut it in half next time. But if you have a big family, this is one yummy and economic meal.

(Mindi Original)

1 lb. ground beef
1 small onion; minced
2 cloves garlic; minced
salt & pepper
1 T. chili powder
½ T. dry mustard
½ T. cumin
1 green pepper; diced
1 C. corn; frozen or fresh
1 can black beans; drained and rinsed
1 15oz. can Tomato sauce
3 C. beef stock
3 T. lime juice
1 cup rice
1 cup cheese
½ C. scallions; diced (optional)
Sour cream & cilantro (optional)

1. In a large skilled (with a lid) brown beef, onion, and garlic. Season with salt & pepper.
2. Add the chili powder, dry mustard, cumin, green pepper, corn, black beans, tomato sauce, beef broth and lime juice. Bring to a full boil.
3. Stir in the rice, cover and reduce the heat to a simmer.
4. Continue cooking for 20-25 minutes or until the rice is fully cooked.
5. Serve topped with cheese and scallions. You can also top with sour cream and/or cilantro if you wish.
6. Serves 6-8 people.

Thanks for catching that Brooke, I made the correction. I guess I shouldn't type up my recipes while my little one is climbing all over me. LOL... Lesson learned! :)
