Taco Rice Skillet
1 pound mild ground sausage
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 pkg mild taco seasoning (get the hot if you like it super spicy)
2 bags boil in the bag brown rice
1C shredded cheddar cheese
2C shredded lettuce
2 tomatoes, chopped
In a pot, boil water and cook rice according to package directions.
In a skillet, brown sausage and add beans and seasoning packet.
Once rice is cooked add rice to meat mixture and then top with cheese. Let the cheese melt.
Top with lettuce and tomatoes.
You could also top this with sour cream, guacamole, ranch salad dressing, salsa. Just use your imagination. The meat mixture is also really good by itself.
This was a hit with the whole family although some were less than thrilled with the black beans.
