This is a wonderful dish that is full of flavor and rehydrates extremely well. I love that it has vegetables, meat, rice and beans to really round out a healthy trail meal.


2 pounds ground beef
2 small bell peppers
1 large onion
3 cups cooked instant brown rice
2 taco seasoning packets (we like the spicy variety)

22oz jar chunky salsa
15 oz can corn, drained


1. Brown the ground beef well, making sure to break into very small pieces
2. Rinse beef in a colander with hot water until no fat remains – set aside
3. Dice bell peppers and onion
