Is great as leftovers. Tweak the amount of some ingredients used and taste test it.
1 lb ground beef
1 T oil or to coat pan for beef ( I have grown to use olive oil for extra flavor).
1 or 2 cloves of garlic minced-depending on how much you like garlic.
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 med or lg onion chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1 T chili powder ( I use more but taste it until it’s spicy enough for me)
1 16 oz can chili or red kidney beans
1 T Worcestershire sauce ( I also use more and taste test it)
1/4 tsp tobasco or hot sauce
1 16 oz can tomatoes
3/4 cup raw white rice
1/4 cup chopped or diced green olives (optional)
1 cup or more shredded chedder cheese or mexican cheese blend (My motto is you can never have enough cheese!)
Heat oven to 350. Brown meat and drain for less fattening or keep grease (original recipe doesn’t say to drain). Add garlic, salt to taste, pepper, onion, green pepper and chili powder. Cook until onion is wilted. Add beans, worcestershire sauce, tomatoes and rice; mix. Turn into casserole dish and bake 45 minutes. Add cheese and olives for topping and bake another 15 minutes.
