Cheap, Easy, Healthy Mexican Bowl Recipe.

I love Cheap, really love Easy, love Healthy and the cherry on top… My kids love it!
This recipe takes me 20 minutes tops. Cost me about $10 and feeds our family if 6.

Now when I am looking for a recipe online I really DO NOT like the 4 paragraphs about someone’s personal life I have to read through before I can see the recipe. So I will save you from that. Also, I don’t really do recipes. I change things up a little each time so play around with the seasonings and see how you like it.

Moma♥Thrift’s Mexican Bowl

2lbs Ground Beef
3 Cans Black Beans
1 Large can Rotel
1 cup Brown Rice
2 cups Beef/Chicken/Vegetable Stock
1 tsp Garlic Salt
1 tsp Onion Powder
1 tsp Paprika
1/2 tsp Tajin Seasoning
Sour Cream
Shredded Cheese

  1. Cook brown rice in beef, chicken or veggie stock according to directions on rice package. (Mine was 1 cup rice, 2 cups water but I use stock for flavor and health benefits. Bring to boil then turn to low and simmer with lid for 15-20 mins.)
  2. Brown ground beef, drain and add seasonings.
  3. Drain black beans and Rotel in a colander, mix in the pan and cook until warm.
  4. Layer brown rice, bean and Rotel mixture, ground beef and top with as much sour cream and shredded cheese as you’d like in a bowl.

Super simple recipe that my kiddos love.
Hope you enjoy.
