Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Cook ground meat in a large skillet until brown (160° F). Drain off fat. Rinse meat with warm water to remove the grease.*
  2. Add rice, water, onion, and chili powder to meat in skillet.
  3. Cover. Simmer over low heat about 15 minutes to cook rice.
  4. Add tomatoes and jalapeño. Heat for 2-3 minutes.
  5. Place layers of spinach or romaine lettuce, rice mixture, and cheese on plates. Serve at once.

Tips

*Do not pour grease down the drain. Let grease harden, then put it in the trash.

2 cans (14.5 ounce) Mexican style tomatoes can be used instead of fresh tomatoes and jalapeño. This will increase the sodium.
