  1. Brown and break up the beef over medium-high heat in a large saute pan. Move beef to a plate or bowl, leaving enough fat to coat the bottom of the pan.
  2. Add vegetables to pan and cook stirring occasionally until softened, about 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in spices and tomato paste and cook for about a minute until fragrant.
  4. Return beef to pan, along with the rice, tomatoes, and chicken broth.
  5. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until rice is fully cooked, while stirring occasionally to avoid burning on the bottom of the pan.
