Directions

Place a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the oil, then the onion. Cook for three minutes, until the onions start to soften.
Add the meat and the spices and cook until the meat is no longer pink, about 10 minutes. Use the back of a spoon to break up the meat as it cooks.
Stir in the UNCLE BEN'S® READY RICE® Whole Grain Brown Rice and salsa, then reduce heat to medium and place the spinach on top. Cover and cook for two minutes, until the spinach has wilted. Stir in the cheese and serve.

About 1 1/4 cups per portion.
