Favorite Ingredient Friday - Baja Beef & Beans with Tex Mex Rice

A while ago, someone asked me to post this recipes and I apologize for not having gotten to it sooner, but here it is!!

Baja Beef and Beans is a delicious, slow-cooker meal that I make very often for company it's that good! The Tex-Mex rice just makes it that much more delicious. Plus it is a super-easy to make meal - literally just minutes...well, the entree part anyways. The rice maybe takes 20 minutes total of prep time.

I hope you enjoy this yummy meal!!

Baja Beef and Beans

  • 1 1/2 lb. round steak
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 T. yellow mustard
  • 1 t. chili powder
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1/4 t. pepper
  • 8 oz. salsa
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 1 t. beef bouillon
  • 1 can of kidney beans

Combine the garlic, mustard, chili powder, salt and pepper. Spread the mixture over the steak, rubbing it in well. Cut the steak into bite-sized pieces. Place in a crockpot and stir in salsa, beef bouillon and onions. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. 30 minutes before serving, stir in drained kidney beans. Serve atop Tex Mex Rice.

Tex Mex Rice

  • 1 cup rice
  • 3/4 cup chopped onion
  • 2 T. olive oil
  • 1/4 t. pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 t. cumin
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped

Saute onion and garlic in olive oil. Stir in rice and saute until rice is slightly browned. Add broth and bring to a boil. Add spices. Simmer, covered, for 20 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in red pepper. Let it stand for 5 minutes before serving.

Enjoy your meal!!
