This fresh take on burritos transforms a Mexican favorite into a bowl.  Everything cooks in one pan in under 30 minutes, so cleanup is a breeze.  In this recipe, cumin-seasoned ground beef simmers with picante sauce and uncooked rice and then gets topped with cheese.  The best part?  Everyone can customize their bowls with their favorite burrito fixings.


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked instant white rice
  • 1 jar (16 ounces) Pace® Picante Sauce
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese


  • Step 1

    Cook the beef in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until well browned, stirring often to separate meat.  Pour off any fat.  Stir in the cumin.

  • Step 2

    Stir in the picante sauce, water and rice and heat to a boil.  Reduce the heat to low.  Cover and cook for 5 minutes or until the rice is tender.

  • Step 3

    Sprinkle the cheese over the beef mixture and top with your favorite burrito toppings.
