Mexican Skillet Recipe

This is the meal we'll be having tomorrow night, but wanted to go ahead and post the recipe in case anyone was interested. I can't remember where I got this recipe, but it was somewhere online and I've probably omitted a few ingredients from the original to make it into something that's more likely to be eaten by me and my husband. So, feel free to add other mexican-style ingredients to your liking :)

Mexican Skillet
1/2 lb. ground beef (chicken or whatever other meat you'd prefer)
1/4 C chopped onion (or substitute with 1 T minced onion)
1 1/2 T chili powder
1 t oregano, fresh (or 1/2 t dried)
1/2 t ground cumin
1/4 t salt
1 C cooked brown rice (I use Uncle Ben's Ready Rice)
1 can pinto or black beans, drained and rinsed
Sharp cheddar cheese or any other toppings of your choice

Brown meat and drain

Add onion, chili powder, oregano, cumin & salt. Stir in rice & beans. Bring to serving temperature.

Serve with tortilla chips
flour tortillas to make burritos (steamed individually between paper towel sheets in microwave in order to make folding your burrito easier)

Top with shredded sharp cheddar cheese and any other toppings
