Cook rice

Before starting, preheat the oven to 450˚F. Wash and dry all produce. Add 1 1/4 cups water, 1/8 tsp salt (dbl both for 4 ppl), broth concentrate and half the Enchilada Spice Blend to a medium pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, add rice, then 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. Roughly chop cilantro. Zest, then juice half the lime (whole lime for 4 ppl).

Cook beef

Heat a large oven-proof pan over medium-high heat. (NOTE: If you don't have an oven-proof pan, use a large non-stick pan.) When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then beef. Cook, breaking up beef into smaller pieces, until no pink remains, 4-5 min.**Carefully drain and discard excess fat.

Finish beef

Add peppers to the pan with beef. Cook, stirring occasionally, until peppers soften slightly, 3-4 min. Sprinkle garlic salt and remaining Enchilada Spice Blend over beef and peppers. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 30 sec. Add salsa. Cook, stirring often, until mixture thickens slightly, 1-2 min.

Assemble and bake

Add rice to the pan with beef and peppers. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, then stir to combine. Remove the pan from heat. (NOTE: If you don't have an oven-proof pan, transfer mixture to a baking dish here.) Sprinkle half the cilantro over top, followed by cheese. Bake in the middle of the oven until cheese melts, 2-3 min.

Finish and serve

Meanwhile, add sour cream, lime zest, 1/2 tsp lime juice, 1/2 tbsp water and a pinch of sugar (dbl all for 4 ppl) to a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, then stir to combine. Divide beef and rice skillet between bowls. Dollop lime crema over top. Sprinkle with remaining cilantro.
