  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 small yellow onion diced, about 1 cup
  • 1/2 large red bell pepper seeded and diced
  • 1 large jalapeño diced - seeds and ribs removed for less heat
  • kosher salt to taste
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • teaspoons ground cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • cups beef broth
  • cups leftover cooked rice
  • 1 can pinto beans rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese


  • In a deep sided skillet, add the lean ground beef and diced yellow onion, red pepper, jalapeño (seeds and ribs removed for less heat) with a pinch of kosher salt.
    Use a wooden spatula to break up the meat, cooking over medium heat until no longer pink and the vegetables are tender.
  • Next add in tomato paste, chili powder, ground cumin, garlic powder and onion powder. Stir and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Add in cooked rice and pinto beans and pour in beef broth. Stir and cook until most of the broth has evaporated and the mixture is saucy.
  • Lastly, add in the cheddar and a few dashes of your favorite hot sauce. Stir, taste and season with salt to your preference.
  • Add 1 generous cup of the beef and rice mixture into bowls, top with your favorite toppings and serve with tortilla chips. (see notes)


Optional Toppings:
  • plain nonfat greek yogurt or sour cream
  • more shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • avocado
  • green onion
  • cilantro leaves
  • hot sauce
  • lime wedges
