Easy One Pot Mexican Supper Bowl

Sharing is caring!

I’m always on the look out for easy meals with mince. For some reason, mince meals seem to be my toddler’s favourite! Only thing is, she really doesn’t like heat. This delicious & hearty One Pot Mexican Supper recipe is mild enough for my daughter and tasty enough for me and the Mr. I’d say that’s a good all rounder!

Here is what you will need to serve 4.

  • 1 Onion, finely diced
  • 2 tbsp Rice Bran Oil *
  • 450g Pork Mince
  • 1 x 400g Tin of Chopped Tomatoes
  • 4 tbsp Tomato Purée
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 2 x 250g Packs of Ready Cooked Mexican Rice **
  • Fresh Parsley, chopped
  • Tortilla Chips, to serve


*I use Rice Bran as it has a very high burning temperature. So if you have a baby/toddler emergency, your food has less chance of being ruined!

** I used Uncle Ben’s Mexican Bean Rice.

Finely dice the onion then heat a large non stick saucepan over a medium heat. When the pan is hot, add the oil followed by the diced onion.

Fry, stirring often, for about 5 minutes until just starting to turn golden.

Add the pork and break apart with a wooden spatula. Fry until it’s no longer pink.

Add the tin of tomatoes then fill the empty tin with water and pour this in too. Squirt in the tomato purée and season with a generous amount of salt & pepper.

Give it a good stir then simmer over a low/medium heat for 20-25 minutes until the sauce has thickened a little & the pork is cooked through. (I like to use a splatter guard for this.)

At this point you can now freeze it if you want to. (Allow to cool, pour into an airtight container then place in the freezer.)

Next, empty the Mexican rice packets into the pan and give it a good stir. (If you have frozen half like I did, only use 1 packet of rice.) Allow to warm through for a few minutes.

Check the seasoning and add a little more salt & pepper to taste if required.

Divide between 4 (or 2) bowls, top with some fresh parsley and serve with a handful of tortilla chips.

And there you have it! This One Pot Mexican Supper really is simple to make. Because a lot of the flavour comes from the ready cooked rice sachets, there’s no faffing about with 1 tsp of this herb and 2 tsp of that spice… It’s just good and simple comfort food! Not to mention pretty healthy for you too. Can’t be bad eh?
