One Skillet Mexican Rice

Inspired by The Slow Roasted Italian’s Mexican Rice Casserole, I decided to put my own twist on things and create a One Skillet Mexican Rice that I knew my family would love!


– Ground Beef – Taco Seasoning – Corn – Tomatoes – Black Beans


Step 1

Begin by browning or draining your meat! This meal is even easier to throw together if you've done this step ahead of time and stored the meat in the fridge, ready to go!

Step 2

In a skillet, add taco seasoning, corn, diced tomatoes, black beans, garlic, pepper, salt, and 2 cups of water. Allow this mixture to simmer for approximately  5–10 minutes or so.

Step 3

Next, dump in the rice letting all of this continue to simmer for 10–12 more minutes. Check on it here and there, stir it if it starts to stick, and add a smidge more water if it's cooking too fast.

When the rice is cooked, you're ready to go! Sprinkle some cheese across the top, and then serve it with a pinch of cilantro, or a dollop of sour cream.

Step 4
