What's for dinner? Mexican Rice & Beef

Yikes, I just realized that I haven't posted in awhile. 

After the happy news of my nephews arrival last week, I got a nasty stomach bug that zapped all my energy.  Funny thing, my brother-in-law caught the same bug the day after.  The funny part is that early Wednesday morning after spending a sleepless night at the hospital the two of us treated ourselves to a "healthy egg breakfast from McDonalds.  hmmm...  and then we got sick.  Everybody else was smart enough to eat home-cooked food.  Now, I'm not saying something was wrong with the food...  but... interesting that we were the only two that got sick.  Just saying...

Anyhoooo, now that I feel better, it's time for some home cooked yummy food.

This is my version of Mexican Rice & Beef.

1 pound ground beef
1 cup of Salsa (I use Mild or medium, 'cause of the kids)
1 can kidney beans, drained(or whatever beans are in pantry)
1 can of President's Choice Smokin' Stampede beans in BBQ sauce
1 cup Parboiled Rice
2 cups of water
Salt and pepper to taste


Brown beef until no longer pink.  Add salsa, beans, rice and water.  Bring to boil and simmer for 15 minutes.
Serve with side salad.
