  1. In a large, deep skillet with a cover, over medium-high heat, add onions and oil. Cook until the onions are tender and translucent, about 3-5 minutes.

  2. Add the whole can of diced tomatoes with green chilis, olives, pico de gallo, rice, black beans, skillet sauce, and water or stock. Stir well to combine and cover.

  3. Let the mixture simmer on medium-low, until the rice is soft and the liquid has been absorbed (pro tip: if using white rice the cook time will significantly decrease).

  4. Stir in scallions and cheese, until the cheese melts. Serve and enjoy!

When the beef is lightly browned, add chopped onions. Cook until the beef is fully cooked, and the onions are tender. Continue with directions starting at step 2.
