Before starting, wash and dry all produce. Heat Guide for Step 4 (dbl for 4 ppl): 1/2 tbsp mild, 1 tbsp medium, 1 1/2 tbsp spicy and 2 tbsp extra-spicy! Peel, then mince or grate garlic. Heat a medium pot over medium heat. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then rice, half the seasoned salt and half the garlic. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 30 sec. Add 1 1/4 cups water and 1/8 tsp salt (dbl both for 4 ppl), then bring to a boil over high. Once boiling, reduce heat to low. Cover and cook until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min. Remove the pot from heat. Set aside, still covered.
Meanwhile, core, then cut pepper into 1/2-inch pieces. Core, then finely chop jalapeño, removing seeds for less heat. (TIP: We suggest using gloves when prepping jalapeños!)Add mayo and half the hot sauce (use all for 4 ppl) to a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then stir to combine.
Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then Beyond Meat® patties. Cook, breaking up patties into bite-sized pieces, until slightly crispy, 4-6 min.** Remove the pan from heat. Transfer Beyond Meat® to a plate, then cover to keep warm.
Heat the same pan over medium. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then mirepoix, peppers and 1 tbsp jalapeños. (NOTE: Reference heat guide.) Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until veggies are tender, 3-4 min.
Add tomato sauce base, remaining seasoned salt and remaining garlic to the pan with veggies. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 30 sec. Add Beyond Meat®, beans including liquid, broth concentrate and 3/4 cup water (dbl for 4 ppl). Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, until sauce thickens slightly, 5-7 min.
