Fry and stir the lean hamburger so it’s evenly browned. Drain off the grease using a colander. Return the drained burger to your skillet. Add some salt and pepper, to your taste.
Chop a medium onion and stir it in the cooking hamburger. Add 3-4 cups of the frozen onion with three pepper blend veggies (red, yellow and green pepper slices) and stir in.
Fry at medium heat and stir to be sure everything is being cooked. The chopped onions will become translucent and the peppers will become soft and pliable.
Use the kind of leftover cooked rice you like best; when I have time, I use brown rice. Stir this in. Then pour in the can of diced tomatoes with juice. Stir everything together well.
Cover the skillet at medium heat and let the ingredients cook down for maybe 15 minutes. This will give you a universal burger mix you will enjoy. Here’s one of the many ways you can use my burger mix.
Use 2 cups of my universal burger mix on a serving plate. Spread 1 tablespoon of salsa over the top. Cover with plastic wrap and zap in the microwave 3 minutes.
Fry 2 eggs; I cover the skillet and get the yolks cooked through. Place the fried eggs over the meat and salsa and have an enjoyable breakfast or lunch.
