Healthy Taco & Brown Rice Bowls

I had a totally different dinner in mind when Hubby went to the grocery store with a list of items I needed. We had a crazy storm today resulting in lost power and a flooded basement so the poor guy had his mind on other things when he was shopping for me. He came home forgetting the corn tortillas for the dinner I was going to make which forced me to think outside of the box and come up with this delish taco and rice bowl! This is a new weeknight favorite in our household!

Taco & Brown Rice Bowls

1 lb lean ground beef

1 package Mc Cormick taco seasoning

1 jalapeño

1 red bell pepper

1 yellow onion small

1 15 ounce can fire roast diced tomatoes
