Tex-Mex Beef Bowls

with Pineapple Salsa, Green Pepper & Cilantro Lime Rice

Move over, Hawaiian pizza—there’s a new pineapple-centric dinner in town. Here, we make an easy pineapple salsa with just fresh cilantro, lime juice, and onion for a delightfully sweet and savory condiment. It doesn’t stop there, though—the juice is simmered with rich spices to create a tantalizingly sticky glaze for ground turkey. It’s all joined by fluffy rice, sautéed pepper and onion, smoky red pepper crema, and lime for brightness. One bite will have you totally BOWL-ed over.

• Wash and dry produce. • Halve, peel, and thinly slice onion; mince a few slices until you have 2 TBSP (3 TBSP for 4 servings). Drain pineapple, reserving juice; roughly chop. Roughly chop cilantro. Zest and quarter lime. Halve, core, and thinly slice green pepper into strips.

Cook Rice

• In a small pot, combine rice, ¾ cup water (1½ cups for 4 servings), and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce to a low simmer. Cook until rice is tender, 15-18 minutes. • Keep covered off heat until ready to serve.

Make Salsa

• While rice cooks, in a small bowl, combine minced onion, chopped pineapple, half the cilantro, and a big squeeze of lime juice. Season with salt and pepper.

Cook Veggies

• Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add sliced onion and green pepper; season with half the Southwest Spice Blend (you’ll use the rest in the next step), salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until veggies are browned and softened, 7-9 minutes. TIP: If seasoning begins to brown too quickly, add a splash of water. • Turn off heat; transfer to a medium bowl and cover to keep warm. Wipe out pan.

Cook Turkey

• Heat a drizzle of oil in same pan over medium-high heat. Add turkey*; using a spatula, press into an even layer. Cook, undisturbed, until browned on bottom, 3-4 minutes. • Break up meat into pieces and stir in Tex-Mex paste, remaining Southwest Spice Blend, and reserved pineapple juice. Bring to a simmer and cook until sauce has thickened and turkey is cooked through, 2-3 minutes more. Taste and season with salt and pepper. Turn off heat.

Open package of chicken and drain off any excess liquid. Swap in chicken (no need to break up into pieces!) or beef for turkey.

Finish & Serve

• Fluff rice with a fork; stir in lime zest, remaining cilantro, and 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4 servings). Season with salt and pepper. • Divide rice between bowls and top with turkey, veggies, and pineapple salsa. Drizzle with smoky red pepper crema and serve with remaining lime wedges on the side.

Ground Beef is fully cooked when internal temperature reaches 160°.
