Provided by kcook323

Categories     Brown Rice

Time 1h10m

Yield 6-8 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 8

1 teaspoon salt
1 garlic clove, minced
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup brown rice, NOT INSTANT
2 cups fat-free chicken broth
1 (10 ounce) can Ro-Tel tomatoes
1/2 cup bell peppers or 1/2 cup red pepper, chopped
1/2 cup onion, chopped

Steps:

  • Heat oil. Add rice and cook until golden and toasted. Add and lightly saute onion, bell pepper, and garlic.
  • Put salt, 1/2 cup of tomatoes (undrained) and broth in a blender. Process till smooth.
  • Add liquid from blender to the rice mixture slowly. You can drain the rest of the tomatoes and add them to the rice at this point if you want extra tomato.
  • Bring to a boil, cover, turn heat to low, and simmer until rice is tender, about 1 hour. (Or however long brown rice needs to simmer - my package says 1 hour.)
  • Don't remove the lid during the cooking process.
  • If you don't have fresh garlic, you can add 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder to the blender.

WW LOW FAT TACO BEEF SKILLET DINNER



Ww Low Fat Taco Beef Skillet Dinner image

Since starting Weight Watchers, I have missed the flavour of Mexican foods. But with calorie-filled toppings and wraps, they're not always diet-friendly. So I came up with this meal- it has the flavours of Mexican food without the majority of the calories and if you have extra points, you can even add a little guacamole or sour cream on top! It's worth using fresh salsa, not the jarred stuff for this recipe- it adds a lovely fresh bright flavour. Using extra lean beef, this recipe has a total of 19 Weight Watchers points by British points calculations.

Categories     One Dish Meal

Time 30m

Yield 3-4 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 10

1 large red onion
1 green bell pepper
2 cups beef stock
1 cup long grain white rice
1 lb extra lean ground beef
3/4 cup frozen corn
1/2 cup water
1 (1 1/4 ounce) packet taco seasoning
1 1/2 cups fresh salsa (not from a jar)
fresh coriander (optional topping)

Steps:

  • Finely chop the red onion and green pepper and set aside.
  • Put the beef stock in a saucepan and heat to boiling. Add the rice and cook, covered, until done (for my brand of rice this takes around 25 minutes).
  • Meanwhile, in a non-stick skillet start to brown the ground beef for 3 minutes.
  • Add the chopped red onion and bell pepper and cook, stirring, for a further 7 minutes.
  • Add the frozen corn and cook for 3 minutes more.
  • Add the water and taco spice mix. Turn down the heat and cook until the meat is done and the liquid is almost completely absorbed. This takes 5-10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile check on the rice- it should be nearly done. Remove from the heat when cooked and the liquid is absorbed.
  • When the meat mixture is cooked, stir in the rice.
  • Turn off the heat and stir in the salsa. Serve immediately, topped with coriander/ cilantro if desired.
