Helen's Spanish Rice With Beef

Helen's Spanish Rice With Beef

Ready in 45 minutes

This is a quick, easy and delicious meal that can be started early and left to simmer or use a crockpot until YOU are ready. I has protein, carbohydrates and veggies all in one.

"This is very good, easy, and versatile. I used a can of Rotel tomatoes in place of the 2 cups of tomatoes and it was a little spicy. We topped with sour cream. There are so many things you can do with recipes like this. I think it would be good topped with cheese towards the end of baking if baked in the oven. We will be making this often."

Preparation

Cook and stir the meat and onion in a large heavy pan until the meat is brown. Drain off the excess fat. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Heat the mixture to boiling then reduce the heat and simmer, covered, stirring occasionally, until the rice is tender, about 30 minutes. (A small amount of water can be added if necessary.)

TO COOK IN THE OVEN: Pour the mixture into an ungreased 2-quart casserole. Cover and bake at 375 degrees F, stirring occasionally, until the rice is tender, about 45 minutes. Serve hot.

Very yummy. It needed more spice, especially salt. I also added a bit of sweet chilli sauce to give it some sweetness. Great recipe, really easy

Yuck, too many tomatoes & not enough seasoning. I threw it out.

Awesome and easy recipe. I doubled the spice amounts (salt, pepper, chili and oregano) and topped it with red pepper flakes.
