- 2x 14.5 oz cans diced tomatoes seasoned with basil, garlic and oregano

Set the Ninja to stovetop high.
Place the ground beef into the pot and then brown it.
Once the meat has finished browning,switch the Ninja to dry oven 350 f.
Place the following items into the pot, in this order – rice, mixed vegetables, diced tomatoes and water.

After 20 minutes has passed, remove the lid and give a good stir.
Replace the lid and cook for another 10-15 minutes, until most liquid has absorbed.
Turn the Ninja off.
Remove the lid and give a stir to fluff the rice.
Sprinkle the shredded cheese across the top.
