Simple Meal Monday: Black Bean and Turkey Mexican Rice

imageHappy Monday!!

I had a crazy busy weekend, but so fun; wedding dress shopping with a friend on Saturday and Sunday we unpacked our Christmas decorations and put up our tree!! YAY!

Simple meals are always great, especially for those busy days. So, here is a quick and easy recipe that I used this past weekend amidst the busyness.

This black bean and turkey Mexican rice is simple but makes super good meal!

Here is what you need:

  • 1 small package of ground turkey or beef
  • 1 package or fajita or taco mix
  • 1 can of black beans
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes (I used one with Italian spices already in it)
  • 1 cup of rice
  • 2 cups of chicken stock
  • 2 onions
  • 2 tsp of garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup of grated cheese
  • Sour cream or salsa for a topping

Start by making your rice. Bring your chicken stock to a boil and add in your rice, cover and turn on low.

In another pot, brown the turkey with the onions (diced) and garlic powder. Once your turkey is cooked mix in the fajita mix, beans, and tomatoes.

Finally add the cooked rice into your turkey mix, top with the cheese and cover for a few minutes so that the cheese can melt.


Done!! Top with sour cream or salsa and enjoy 🙂


Happy cooking!
