SUMMER MENU-A-DAY FOR JULY ~ Mexican Veggie Skillet



Every day in July I am featuring a SUMMERTIME menu-a-day. Use this as inspiration or for your daily meal plan! Make sure you check back each day on
Wildtree Cooking with Jen Warr to see what yummy menu I am suggesting.

#10 - Mexican Veggie Skillet 
It's hot out...again! So here's another one of Wildtree's awesome Skillet Meals which means you do not have to turn on the oven or the grill.

Mexican Veggie Skillet
2 cups water
1 cup milk
1 bag Wildtree Mexican Skillet Meal seasoning
1 cup brown rice***
1 bell pepper, diced
1 cup diced scallions
1 (15.5 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 (10 ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chilies, drained

In a large skillet stir together water, milk, and Mexican Skillet Meal seasoning packet. Stir in the rice, and bring to a boil stirring occasionally. Once sauce is boiling, reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 35 minutes. Stir occasionally. Remove cover, add in the remaining ingredients, and stir to combine. Cook, covered, for 5 minutes more or until rice is tender. Remove from heat and uncover. Let sit about 2-3 minutes, sauce will thicken as it cools.
***You might need a little extra time for the rice to cook all the way.
