  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  3. Stir onion, bell pepper, garlic, chili powder, and salt with the ground beef; cook and stir until the onion is softened, about 5 minutes.
  4. Stir kidney beans, tomatoes, and rice into the beef mixture; pour into a large casserole dish and top with American cheese and olives.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until the cheese is beginning to brown around the edges, 45 to 50 minutes.

  • Cook's Notes:
  • Brown rice may be used. Just cook 1/2 cup dry brown rice before adding to dish. You will also need to drain the tomatoes and bake dish for only 30 minutes at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • Cheddar cheese may be used but I suggest a mild cheese.

Better than I expected. We had to modify slightly due to dietary restrictions so we make a replacement for tomatoes, sauce intended to taste very close to puree tomatoes and no chili powder. I think it would be even better with chili powder. I just use extra garlic and cumin. I cooked all in a cast iron and then moved right to the oven in cast iron. Made it super easy. Note you need minute ride and it didn't specify so rice was crunchy. We didn't notice to bad as we ate with chips as this was our variation on our taco Tuesday night.
