Here’s How I do it:

  1. Prepare the Rice:  Place the rice, home rendered tallow/organic pasture butter, 1 tsp. Real Salt,1-1/2 cups of vegetable stock and 1-1/2 cups of beef stock into a 1 quart saucepan with lid; Cover, bring to a boil then immediately reduce the heat and simmer on low for 45 minutes.
  2. If using Homemade Organic Freezer Ground Meat Mix:  Pour 1/2 cup unchlorinated and unfluoridated water into a deep saucepan with lid; Add the frozen meat mix, onions, bell pepper and tomatoes.  Simmer for 15 minutes over medium heat, covered.  Uncover; break up the frozen chunks into smaller pieces.  Add the garlic; Cover and simmer for an additional 5 minutes.  Proceed with step 5.
  3. Brown the ground meat in a saucepan until halfway done.
  4. Add the onions, bell pepper, tomatoes and garlic and saute with the ground beef for 6 to 7 minutes until the beef is brown and the onions are clear.
  5. Add 1/2 cup beef stock, 1/2 cup vegetable stock and 2 Tbsp. tomato paste; Stir well.
  6. Add the taco seasoning, paprika, chili pepper powder, red pepper flakes (if using), turmeric and 1-1/2 tsp. salt; Stir well.
  7. Slowly bring the mixture to a boil then simmer, covered, until the brown rice is fully cooked.
  8. While the dish is simmering, make the cheese sauce:  In a chef’s saucepan, warm the 2 Tbsp. butter until bubbly; Add the flour, 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper; Cook for 1-2 minutes over medium heat.  Pour 3/4 cup milk into the flour mixture and stir until well combined; cook over medium heat for 5-10 minutes, or until it begins to thicken.  Add the cheeses to the thickened mixture a little at a time while stirring to blend; Make sure to stir often or the sauce will try to burn. Cover and leave on lowest heat setting to keep warm until needed.  (DO NOT cook on higher than a medium temperature!)
  9. Add the cooked rice to the skillet and stir to combine.
  10. Drizzle the cheese sauce on top of the rice mixture.
