    1lb, Organic Grass Fed Ground Beef
    1 Medium Yellow Onion, Chopped
    2 Medium Red Bell Peppers, Chopped
    1 Medium Yellow Bell Pepper, Chopped
    1/2c Green Bell Pepper, Chopped

    6oz (3/4C) Sargento 4-Cheese Mexican Shredded Cheese
    Garlic Powder, Salt, Pepper to taste

Tips

You can use any size baking dish for this recipe, I intended to use my 13x9" but it was in the fridge with other food in it! I ended up using both my 11x7" and 8x8" for this one batch of casserole!


Directions

Cook Rice according to instructions.

Chop all vegetables.

In large skillet, brown the ground beef. Drain grease and add the chopped onion. Continue to cook the beef and onion together until onion starts becoming tender. Add salt, pepper, garlic powder to taste.

Add can of Rotel to the Beef/Onion mixture for a few moments on the heat. Mix to combine evenly.

In large bowl, combine the beef mixture and bell peppers. Add the rice on top and toss together, in order to not smash the rice.

Scoop into greased baking pan and cover with aluminum foil. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 25-30 minutes until peppers are tender.

Remove from oven and uncover. Add shredded cheese to top of casserole and place back in the oven until cheese is melted to preference.

Serve and enjoy!

  • Incredible!
    Filling without feeling too full, this was a great and versatile dish for either a side or a full meal! I added some chili powder, a little tomato paste, and some other savoury herbs to the ground beef to give it a little more punch, as we tend to favour more spice in our dishes, but even at its bas - 4/1/18
