    • ¼ cup Sour Cream
    • 1 cup Long Grain White Rice
    • 2 Poblano Peppers

    Cook the rice & beans
    1 Cook the rice & beans

    Carefully rinse the rice (sifting through for any impurities). Drain thoroughly. Drain and rinse the beans. In a medium pot, combine the rice, drained beans, a big pinch of salt, and 2 cups of water; stir to combine. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 16 to 18 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork.

    Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the tomatoes. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Halve the lime crosswise. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then thinly slice lengthwise. Thoroughly wash your hands immediately after handling. In a bowl, combine the halved tomatoes, sliced white bottoms of the scallions, the juice of 1 lime half, and a drizzle of olive oil. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

    Cook the beef & peppers
    3 Cook the beef & peppers

    In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the beef and sliced peppers. Cook, stirring frequently and breaking the meat apart with a spoon, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the guajillo sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter) and 1/4 cup of water; season with salt, pepper, and the spice blend. Cook, stirring frequently, 3 to 4 minutes, or until the beef is coated and cooked through. Turn off the heat.

Enjoy!
