- In a large skillet, over medium heat, brown the lean ground beef. Also, break up the beef as it browns.

- 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 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.

On this Easy Skillet Texas Hash recipe, you say "See Note" beside the Chili Powder. I do not see the note. Is it important.
Hi Martha, I fixed the note for the chili powder. I noted that I start with 1/2 teaspoon of chili powder. Add more chili powder if your prefer a bit spicier.
I love how easy this was to make. One skillet and. Delish! My family loves this. Now in the rotation
Fantastic Kim, so happy your family enjoyed this recipe. We love it too!
