Thrive’s October monthly delivery specials contained beef dices and red pepper slices which to me says FAJITAS! However, I’ve done a Chicken Fajita meal-in-a-jar recipe before so I didn’t want this to be too similar. I found a delicious recipe for a beef fajita rice bake and made my Thrive twists on it and I think it turned out pretty good. I hope you like it!

Beef Fajita Bake Recipe (Meal-in-a-Jar)
Don’t forget all ingredients will be cheaper and are available for free shipping for delivery customers if your order is over $100. A quart-sized jar will make 4-5 servings.
- 1 T. Taco Seasoning
- 1 tsp. Thrive FD Garlic
- 1/2 tsp. Salt
- 1/4 tsp. Black Pepper
- 1/2 tsp. Beef Bouillon
- 1/4 c. Thrive Tomato Sauce Powder
- 2 T. Thrive Green Chile Peppers
- 1 c. Thrive Instant White Rice
- 3/4 c. Thrive Diced Beef (or Ground Beef)
- 1/2 c. Thrive Red Bell Pepper
- 1/2 c. Thrive Onion Slices
- 1/2-3/4 c. Thrive Shredded Cheddar Cheese
To make jar: Add all ingredients except the cheese to a quart jar in order listed. Put cheese in a small baggie and set gently inside jar. (A wide-mouth jar works best for this recipe). Add an oxygen absorber or seal with a foodsaver jar lid attachment.
To prepare: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Remove baggie and pour cheese into a small container with a lid. Add 2 T. of water and shake until all water is absorbed. If cheese is not soft enough add a little more water and shake again. Place in fridge. Pour remaining contents of jar into a 9×9 baking dish. Pour 2 1/4 c. water into the dish and stir well. Let stand for 10 minutes. Bake for 15-20 minutes stirring halfway through. Once the casserole is fully hydrated and rice is cooked, top with the hydrated cheddar cheese spreading it evenly over the top. Bake for another 5-7 minutes or until cheese is melted.
