Spanish Rice Recipe

  • 1 pound extra lean ground beef
  • 1 cup onion, chopped (1 large)
  • 1 cup green bell pepper, chopped (1 Large)

  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Preparation Instructions

In a medium skillet brown meat, onion and green pepper until meat is no longer pink. Turn off heat and drain meat juices. Wipe fat from skillet with paper towels. If desired wash meat by placing in a sieve and running hot water through it.

Add meat mixture and remaining ingredients to 4 quart sauce pan. Cover and simmer on low heat 40 minutes.

The slow cooking allows the flavor to blend and green pepper and onion to become tender. In fact, this will actually taste better the next day, as do many casserole or combination dishes.

Yield: Makes Six 2 Cup Servings
