Dinner in 30 Minutes or Less

This is what you get for reading the back of the rice box ... dinner in about 30 minutes.

Don't you remember reading the back of the cereal box as you sat at the breakfast table as a kid? Given the opportunity and a few minutes, I'll find something to read. I'd prefer a book, but a box will do in a pinch.

In this case, it lead to a tasty meal.

Southwest Beef & Bell Pepper Skillet
1 lb. lean ground beef
1 can (14.5 oz.) beef broth
1 can (10 oz.) diced tomatoes and green chiles, undrained
1 large red or green pepper, thinly sliced then halved
1 large yellow pepper, thinly sliced then halved
2 cups instant brown rice, uncooked
1 1/2 cups finely shredded Colby and Monterey Jack cheese

Brown meat in large ovenproof skillet; drain fat. Stir in broth and tomatoes. Bring to boil.

Add peppers and rice; stir. Cover; simmer on low heat 5 minutes or until rice is tender. (When I checked it at 5 minutes, it wasn't tender yet.)

Top with cheese. Broil, uncovered, 2 to 3 minutes or until melted. Makes 6, 1 1/3 cup servings.

Serve with a green salad.
