Easy Skillet Texas Hash
A tasty skillet meal ready in no time! Filled with ground sirloin beef, veggies and tomatoes. Perfect for a crowd, family dinner, or Game Day meal.
- 1 pound lean ground beef
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 medium red pepper, chopped
- 1 medium orange pepper, chopped
- 1 medium jalapeno, finely chopped
- 2 cloves garlic,minced
- 14.5 ounce can fire roasted diced tomatoes
- 8.5 ounce can no-salt added corn, drained
- 8 ounce can tomato sauce
- 1 teaspoon tomato paste
- 1 cup white rice *see note
- 1 teaspoon ground chipotle pepper
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/2 - 1 teaspoon ground chili powder *see note
- 2 teaspoon fresh parsley or cilantro, chopped
- salt and pepper, to taste
- 8 ounces low-fat shredded Mexican cheese
Cook rice according to package, set aside.
In a large skillet, over medium heat, brown the lean ground beef . Also, break up the beef as it browns.
Drain any excess grease from the browned beef.
To the browned beef in the skillet, add the onion, red pepper, orange pepper and jalapeno. Saute to soften the vegetables, around 5 minutes. Add in the minced garlic and stir for another minute.
Add to the skilled, fire roasted diced tomatoes and its juices, corn, tomato sauce, tomato paste, cooked rice, ground chipotle pepper, cumin, oregano, chili powder, and salt and pepper to taste. Give a good stir to the ingredients. Turn heat to low, put a lid on the skillet and simmer for about 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes, remove lid and stir mixture. Check seasoning, adjust if needed. Top the beef with the shredded Mexican cheese, return lid to skillet. Let cheese melt, around 1-2 minutes. Remove lid, sprinkle with the fresh parsley or cilantro.
Serve immediately with Texas toast or cornbread.
- To drain grease, I use a slotted spoon and paper towel lined bowl. I scoop the beef out with a slotted spoon to the paper lined plate. Any excess grease in skillet remove and discard.
- I use a gluten-free quick cooking rice when I make this meal.
Please note, we planned this prior to Hurricane Irma.! I hope to do the same for Hurricane Irma!
