Mexican Skillet

I've been making this Mexican skillet for my family for years. This week when I made it, my husband commented that it is actually one of his favorite recipes of mine. Its just a filling stick to your ribs no fuss meal. Classic Mexican flavors that come together in a cinch. 

1 lb lean ground beef
1 small onion, diced
1 packet taco seasoning
2 tsp olive oil
2 cups cooked brown rice
1 tsp butter
1 can black beans
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup diced tomatoes
1 avocado, sliced 
2 tsp chopped cilantro

Directions: Cook your rice with 1 tsp butter and a pinch of salt. While that cooks, in a large pan heat some oil, cook your onions until they begin to brown. Add your ground beef and crumble and cook until golden brown. Mix in your taco seasoning, and beans. In a large dish, layer your rice on the bottom, meat mixture on the top, then cheese, tomatoes, avocado, and cilantro. 

We hope this easy weeknight meal quickly becomes a favorite in your household as well.
