Black Beans and Rice Chili

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons oil, divided
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1 (7 ounce) package ZATARAIN'S® Black Beans and Rice Mix
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 cup frozen corn kernels
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • Assorted toppings, such as shredded cheese, sour cream and chopped fresh cilantro

Directions

  1. Heat oil in large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat. Add ground beef, onion and bell pepper; cook and stir until meat is no longer pink. Drain fat.
  2. Stir in remaining 1 tablespoon oil, Rice Mix, water, tomatoes, corn, chili powder, garlic powder and crushed red pepper.
  3. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 25 minute or until most of the water is absorbed and rice is tender. Stir occasionally to prevent rice and beans from sticking. Serve with assorted toppings, if desired.
