Cheesy Southwestern Skillet

Posted on January 12 2024, By: Nancy Greene


  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 1 pound ground beef, (We used 93/7.)
  • ½ cup white onion, finely chopped
  • 2 ¼ cups low-sodium beef broth
  • ½ cup long grain white rice, uncooked (long grain, jasmine, or basmati)
  • ¼ cup tomato paste
  • 1 package of taco season
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 ½ cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded



  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, add the oil, ground beef, and onions. Cook the ground beef until no pinks remain. Drain excess grease, and return to the pan.
  2. Stir in the broth, rice, tomato paste, and taco seasoning. Bring the ingredients to a boil, cover, and reduce the heat to simmer.
  3. Cook at a simmer for 20 to 25 minutes or until the rice is tender and cooked to the desired consistency.
  4. Remove from heat, uncover, and top with shredded cheese. Return the lid and allow the residual heat to melt the cheese.
  5. Serve warm with your favorite side dish. Top with garnishes such as guacamole, sour cream or green onions.
