"Hot Taco Rice"

Great Dish! I found this recipe in a magazine years ago and it ended up being one of our favorite dishes....

1 lb. ground Beef (brown and drain fat)
1 Onion (chopped)
1 Green Bell Pepper (chopped)
1 Celery Stalk (chopped)
4 Roma or Plum Tomatoes, diced
1 - 8 oz. can Tomatoe Sauce
1 Chicken Boullion Cube
1-1/2 C. medium Salsa
2 cloves minced Garlic
Jalapeno Peppers to taste (chopped)

1 C. Rice, cooked to package directions.

Garnishes: sour cream, cheddar cheese and tortilla chips.

Note for rice: I like to cook my rice in chicken stock or boullion vs just water. I also add 2 cloved minced garlic near the end of its cooking time.

Brown beef with onion, peppers and celery - drain fat. Add salsa, tomatoes, tomatoe sauce, boullion, garlic and jalapeno. Bring to full boil, reduce heat and simmer for 30 min. Meanwhile prepare rice. Serve beef mixture over rice, top with garnishes

Number Of Servings: 4
