  • 1 cup water

  • 1 cup uncooked white rice

  • 1 ½ pounds ground beef

  • 1 cup diced onion

  • ½ cup chopped green bell pepper

  • 1 (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained

  • 1 (14 ounce) can tomato sauce

  • 1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chile peppers

  • 1 (1.25 ounce) package dry taco seasoning mix

  • 1 tablespoon chili powder

  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 1 (15 ounce) can kidney beans, rinsed and drained

  • 1 (15 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained


  1. Bring water and rice to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until rice is tender and water has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes. Set aside.

  2. At the same time, heat a large pot over medium-high heat. Cook and stir ground beef, onion, and bell pepper in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain and discard grease.

  3. Add diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, taco seasoning, chile peppers, chili powder, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer for 20 minutes.

  4. Add beans and corn, and simmer for 10 minutes longer. Add cooked rice and serve.

Cook's Note:

You can use ground turkey instead of ground beef.
