Phil found this recipe online and I knew right away it was going to be one we were going to like. We "tweeked" it a little bit to fit the ingredients we had here and this is what we came up with.
Take one pound of hamburger and brown it in a pan (mine is a deep frying pan so I could do it all in one pan), with one small diced onion and some peppers. The recipe actually called for one green pepper but I was using the peppers that I had frozen through the year so mine were red, yellow and green and I put in more than what would equal just one. Probably 2 or 3.
Cook these together until the hamburger is done and drain off the grease.
While this is cooking you need to cook some rice. Enough so that you have about 2 cups when cooked (I cheat and use Boil n' Bag rice because I have never made good rice).
To your meat mixture add a couple of chopped garlic cloves (I was out and had to use powder), salt and pepper and 1 tablespoon sugar. Then add one can of tomato soup and one can of diced tomatoes with chilies (if using your own just add the tomatoes and a chopped up chili or two.). Add a can and a half or so of water. Mix well and add in your rice.
Cover and simmer for about 15 minutes.
Sprinkle with cheese and enjoy! We used an Italian blend of 5 different cheeses.
We all really liked it. This was really simple and quick to make and I am sure we will be using this recipe again.
