Ingredients

For serving: 

Directions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 400ºF.
  2. Heat oil in a large oven-safe skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add onion, pepper and garlic. Cook, stirring often, until softened, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add ground beef, and continue cooking until no pink remains, about 5 minutes.
  4. Add in the black beans, taco seasoning, salt, pepper, white rice, salsa and chicken broth and stir together until it is completely combined.
  5. Cover the skillet and cook in the preheated oven for 35-45 minutes, until the rice is no longer hard, and nearly cooked through. Remove from the oven and let the casserole sit, covered for 5 minutes. If using cheese, preheat the broiler. Then, top with cheese, and place under the broiler for 2-3 minutes, until melted.
  6. Once ready to serve, top with optional garnishes.
