jalapeno, seeds and stem removed, finely chopped
prepared Spanish style rice
2 packets of Spanish style minute-rice works great

cilantro and green onions for garnish
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add oil, ground beef, diced bell peppers, and chopped jalapeno.
Cook for 6-8 minutes, stirring and using a spatula or spoon to break up the ground beef, until meat is completely browned and peppers are becoming tender.
Stir in tomato sauce, salt, cumin, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, and beef broth.
Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 5-10 minutes til reduced and thickened.
Stir in rice. Top with shredded cheese. Cover for 2-3 minutes until cheese is melted.
Garnish with cilantro and green onions if desired and serve.
In place of the ground beef, I often use ground Italian sausage. It might seem a little strange to use "Italian" sausage in place of ground beef in a tex-mex flavored recipe, but trust me, it works!
