  • In a large, deep walled skillet, cook onions and beef together over medium-high heat until beef is browned. 
  • Add rice and cook an additional 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly so the rice doesn't stick to the pan.
  • Add chicken broth, tomatoes with chiles, and tomato sauce. Stir well to combine. 
  • Bring to a boil, cover with lid, and reduce heat to low. 
  • Lightly simmer for 20 minutes, keeping the lid in place.
  • Remove lid and fluff rice with a fork. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Top with cheese, then cover again for another 3-5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve.
