Cost Per Serving: 
$1.07
Ingredients: 
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 1/2 cups instant brown rice, uncooked
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup onion, chopped (about 1 medium)
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 3 cups tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 seeded jalapeño (chopped finely)
  • 2 cups spinach or romaine lettuce
  • 1 cup 2% fat cheese, shredded
Instructions: 
  1. Cook ground meat in a large skillet until brown (160° F).  Drain off fat. Rinse meat with warm water to remove the grease.*
  2. Add rice, water, onion, and chili powder to meat in skillet.
  3. Cover. Simmer over low heat about 15 minutes to cook rice.
  4. Add tomatoes and jalapeño. Heat for 2-3 minutes.
  5. Place layers of spinach or romaine lettuce, rice mixture, and cheese on plates. Serve at once.
Substitution:
  • 2 (14.5 ounce) cans Mexican style tomatoes can be used instead of fresh tomatoes and jalapeño. This will increase the sodium.
Tips: 
  • *Do not pour grease down the drain. Let grease harden, then put it in the trash.
