Make and share this Monterey Rice recipe from Food.com.
- 1 lb lean ground beef

- 1 medium onion, chopped (I use frozen)

- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can tomatoes and green chilies, diced (I use Muir Glen fire-roasted)

- 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can black beans, drained
- 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can low sodium beef broth
- 1 cup quick-cooking brown rice (I use Uncle Ben's, can also use longer cooking rice, but increase cooking time)

- Saute beef and drain.

- Let stand 10 minutes.
- Serve with grated cheese.
- Can also be served in a flour tortilla as a burrito.
I thought this was very good. DH thought it was bland. So next time I will be adding taco seasoning to the meat and probably hot Rotel. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I will make it again and hopefully get DH's approval. We did serve as burritos as suggested.
