Hearty Skillet Rice Dinner

Here is another great quick dinner. This is also a great way to use up leftover rice. I like to do big cooking once a week and then keep precooked rice and pasta in the fridge for easy meal planning. The meat can be substituted with any ground meat,  diced up whole meat, or beans of your choose. I love to make this meal for our friends that eat gluten free.


2 teaspoons olive oil

3 cup Brown Rice, cooked

1 cups chicken stock

1 med onion, diced

1 green pepper, diced

1 Red Pepper, Diced

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

1 med. zucchini, Diced

1 Lb of Ground Pork, pre-browned

1 Jar (homemade or Commercial) of Med. or Mild Salsa

1 cup precooked left over or frozen corn

Fresh - Sprig of Cilantro and Oregano


Dry -1/2 teaspoon ground cumin, 1 teaspoon oregano

1 teaspoon chili powder

1/2 lime, juiced


2 cups shredded cheese - we use a Mexican Mix

 In a medium saucepan, heat 2 teaspoons olive oil over medium-high heat. Cook Sausage till browned. Add veggies and saute. Add rice and broth cook it and stir for a few minute. Once broth has absorbed add salsa and herbs. Turn the heat down to low and covered for a few minutes to raise the heat. Add cheese and cover again till melted.
