Leftover remake

My kids love to eat rice, so we have it frequently. It's great and all, but sometimes... Well, sometimes, I am tired of regular old rice. So, I try to mix it up as much as they'll let me. This was a winner, and we'll have it again.

I started with browning some ground beef, a red bell pepper, onion, and wilting some fresh spinach in a pan.

Added some leftover Mexican rice (just rice cooked with tomato sauce).

And we ended up with this skillet Mexican rice that hit the spot! It's great as is, topped with cheese, or rolled in a tortilla. Whatever floats your boat. But, oh so easy, and surprisingly better than the sum of its parts.

It's Tuesday, so I'm linked to Tasty Tuesday over at Balancing Beauty and Bedlam. I always find great ideas over there. Check it out!
