Beef & Veggie Bowl!

1 tsp safflower oil
1 lb extra-lean ground beef
2 cups diced green bell peppers ( I don't like green peppers so I used red peppers)
14 1/2 oz boxed or jarred diced unsalted tomatoes (these are hard to find, unless you shop at a health food a can will do if you must).
1 1/2 cups frozen corn, thawed
2 tsp ground cumin(I only used 1 tsp because I didn't want an overpowering taste of cumin)
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
1/2  tsp each sea salt and fresh ground black pepper
1/2 cup low-fat sour cream
Fresh cilantro sprigs for garnish, optional 

In a medium pot, heat oil on medium-high.  Add beef and cook, stirring and breaking up with a wooden spoon, for about 4 minutes.  Add bell peppers, tomatoes, corn and Worcestershire sauce and stir to combine.  Bring to a boil.  Cover, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes, until bell peppers are tender.  Remove from heat and stir in cumin, vinegar, salt and black pepper.  Spoon into serving bowls and top with sour cream, dividing evenly.  Garnish with cilantro, if desired.

This was simply YUMMY!  Dh told me at least 5 times during the meal how much he enjoyed it.  He just kept saying, "This is good.  This is really good."  SCORE!

OPTIONS:  Eat with tortilla chips or atop a bed of lettuce.  No chips for us, just the beef and veggies in a bowl! YUM!

Give it a try and tell me what you think.
