    Steps

    • 1

      When ready to cook, set Traeger temperature to 400°F and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes. While the grill is heating, place a 12 inch cast iron skillet on the grill grate to preheat.

      When the grill reaches 400°F, add the oil and the onion to the pan along with a 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Put the lid down and cook, stirring once or twice, until the onions are soft, about 10 minutes.
    • 3

      Add the meat and 1 teaspoon of salt and cook, breaking it up with the back of a wood spoon, until browned, about 15 to 20 minutes. Stir in the taco seasoning.

      Stir in the tomatoes, beans, rice, green chiles and 1/2 can of water from the tomato can (or about a cup of water). Stir to ensure the rice is covered in the liquid.
    • 5

      Cover the pan snuggly with a tight-fitting lid or two sheets of aluminum foil and cook for 20 to 25 minutes or until the rice is cooked through.
