one-pot rice, beef & veggie fiesta!

This is my go-to quick and easy weeknight dinner recipe. It’s yet another one of my mom’s classics! It’s hearty and flavorful and hello, it’s called FIESTA! This recipe makes awesome leftovers and it’s so easy to make, I often make it on a Sunday to take to work for lunch through the week. Easy peasy.
