Fiesta Chili Beef and Rice

This zesty dish creates its own fiesta with every spoonful. Serve with corn tortillas and salsa


  • 2 tablespoons LUV Flavors olive oil
  • 1 cup white rice
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 1 (10 ounce) can red Chile sauce
  • 1 (8.75 ounce) can sweet corn
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pound sirloin, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1 (15 ounce) can Mexican-style tomato sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

      Step 1: 

      Add olive oil to a medium saucepan. Stir in rice, and cook over medium heat until rice begins to have a golden color, about 5 minutes. Add 1/2 cup onion and 1/2 cup green pepper; cook and stir for 1 minute. Stir in water and half of the chili sauce. Bring to boil. Mix in corn, lemon juice, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cover, and simmer over low heat for 20 minutes.


      Step 2: 

      Meanwhile, sauté beef with remaining 1/2 cup onion and 1/2 cup green pepper until meat loses pink color and vegetables are tender.


      Step 3: 

      Add remaining chili sauce, tomato sauce, cumin, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Simmer uncovered 15 minutes.


      Step 4: 

      Turn rice onto a platter, and fluff with a fork. Sprinkle with cheese, and top with beef mixture. Serve immediately.
