Do you ever prepare hamburger for busy nights by cooking it right away after you buy it? Sometimes I will do that.
I find it cuts down so much time if you buy hamburger, cook it while you are putting the rest of the groceries away then pop it into the freezer.
Now, for recipes like this one, the biggest time consumer (cooking the hamburger) is done. You just need to put together the rest of the meal.
Never fear though, if you don't have hamburger already cooked in the freezer, this meal still comes together in less than 30 minutes.
- White Rice (or you can use brown rice)
