1 lb lean ground beef
1 cup chopped onion (about 1/2 large onion)
1 cup chopped green pepper (about 1/2-3/4 large green pepper)
1 14-oz. can diced tomatoes
1/2 cup uncooked brown rice
1 cup water
6 oz shredded cheddar cheese
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp mild chili powder
1/2 tsp ground cumin
Makes 6 servings.
NOTE: Cooking time is considerably shorter if you use white rice. Nutrition information was calculated using whole milk cheddar cheese and "lean" ground beef; using part-skim cheese and extra-lean ground beef will cut the fat content.
(I have also posted a version of this recipe with ground turkey and reduced-fat cheese, called "Mom's Western Hash, but healthier.")
This was a childhood staple, and my mom used slices of Velveeta; I have also used sliced American cheese in this dish.
Number of Servings: 6
