Southwestern Beef Skillet

Ingredients:

1l b. extra lean ground beef
1 Tbsp. chili powder
1 cup medium chunky salsa
1 cup water
1 cup frozen corn
1 cup frozen cut green beans
1 - 1/2cups Minute Rice Brand Rice, uncooked
1cup Kraft Tex Mex Shredded Cheese

I didn't have Minute Rice, so I just cooked rice ahead of time...and I just used cheddar cheese, as that's all I had.

Directions:

BROWN meat with chili powder in large deep skillet.ADD salsa, water, corn and green beans. Bring to boil. Stir in rice; cover. Reduce heat to low; simmer 5 min.REMOVE from heat. Top with cheese; cover. Let stand 5 min. or until liquid is absorbed and cheese is melted.

We had this last night & we both enjoyed it. Matthew suggested serving it will tortillas & making wraps. I found it a bit spicy, but sour cream made it great!
