1 pound ground beef
3/4 cup chopped onion
1-1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. garlic salt
1 16 oz. can tomatoes, cut up
1 15-1/2 oz. can red kidney beans
3/4 cup quick cooking rice
3/4 cup water
3 tbsp. chopped green pepper
3/4 cup shredded sharp American cheese (3 oz.)


In skillet, cook ground beef and onion till beef is brown and onion is tender; drain off fat. Sprinkle meat mixture with chili powder, salt, and garlic salt. Stir in undrained tomatoes, undrained beans, uncooked rice, water, and green pepper. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally for 20 minutes. Top with cheese. Cover and heat till cheese melts, about 3 minutes longer. Sprinkle with crushed corn chips, if desired.

Makes 6 servings.

Nicki’s Notes:

This was good, but not spicy enough for our tastes. I used 2 1/2 tsp chili powder and added 2 tsp cumin and a dash of Tabasco. It was DELICIOUS! I recommend adding this on top of lettuce and corn chips for a nice texan chilli style salad!
