6. Mix in cheese.
7. Add chicken,  mushrooms,  and bell pepper to bowl and mix well.

  3. In a large pot, brown beef.
  4. Add spices and lemon juice to beef and mix well.
  5. Turn off heat.
  6. Add rice, pasta sauce, and 1/4 cup of cheese to beef and mix well.
  7. Pour mixture into 9×13 pan.

You can also add a chopped bell pepper to the mix (I like the way it tasted, my husband didn’t).

Serve with a vegetable of your choice.

**If you are doing the 21 day fix, 1/4 of the 9×13 is a serving. It would count as 1 yellow, 1 red, 1 blue, and 1 purple. Your vegetable would also add 1 green.
