  • LBS Ground Beef Ground Turkey would be okay
  • 1 Green pepper, Diced.
  • ½ Medium Onion, Diced.
  • 2 Cloves Garlic, Minced.
  • 1 14.5 Can Diced Tomatos or Tomato Sauce .
  • 3 Cups 5-Minute White Rice
  • 32 Oz Beef Broth
  • 2 Cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese.


  • Brown the ground beef, onions, peppers. I like to season the beef as it is browning with Salt & Pepper
  • Drain the grease and discard.
  • Add canned Tomatoes, ½ of the broth, Chili Powder, Paprika and Garlic.
  • Simmer on medium heat for 10 minutes.
  • Add Uncooked Rice and the remaining broth.
  • Bring to a boil and then back down to a simmer on low heat. Then cover for 10-15 minutes
  • Add cheese, cover to melt, then serve


Rice can be tricky, if it looks dry as it simmers add more broth or a little water.
