Ingredients

  • 1 pound Ground Beef (75 to 80% lean)
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 package (5.7 to 8 ounces) Cajun-style dirty rice mix
  • Water, as needed
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, drained

Instructions

  1. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add Ground Beef; cook 8 to 10 minutes, breaking into 3/4-inch crumbles and stirring occasionally. Pour off drippings.

    Cook's Tip:

    Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed Ground Beef. Ground Beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F. Color is not a reliable indicator of Ground Beef doneness.

  2. Stir in rice mix and water amount indicated in package directions, omitting oil or margarine; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook according to time indicated in package directions or until rice is tender.

  3. Stir in tomatoes. Cook until heated through, stirring occasionally.
