I made this for my daycare kids lunch and they loved it!! I thought it was great! Very easy and fast. Changes I made: Used long grain white rice (not instant), half an onion, 2 red mini sweet bell peppers, added 1 clove garlic chopped, 1 can diced tomatoes with mild green chilies, grated cheddar cheese on top. This is a meal that my husband will love so I plan on making it again.
I thought this was a little bland. I did only use 1 Tbsp chili powder, for the kids' sake, but I could probably have used the 2 the recipe calls for. The flavor was very tomatoey and the meat didn't have much taste. I will probably make this again, but next time I'll add garlic salt and maybe some celery other veggie to the dish.
We just got done eating this so I thought I'd write a quick review. This was pretty good with the changes I made based on other reviews. I added a large clove of garlic, minced, a can of drained black beans, and a large red pepper instead of green. I used the full 2 tablespoons of chili powder, and did NOT drain the diced tomatoes. Maybe the person who said the result was soupy didn't drain the grease out after browning the ground beef with the peppers and onions. I used plenty of salt and pepper but still think next time I make it I will add some worchestershire sauce. Don't get me wrong, it was more then edible; my son had 2 helpings! It just could have used a touch more zip. Thanks for a good base recipe...an update 11/12/08: If you are using a good brand of chili powder, you may want to cut back to one tablespoon...the first few times I made this I used "bargain" chili powder (.99)and 2 tablespoons was fine...this last time I used McCormick's and 2 tablespoons made it a little too spicy for us. Oh, also, I used muenster cheese, because that's what I had, now THAT was good.
This was great! We all loved it. I doubled the bell pepper, used brown rice instead of instant white and shredded cheddar instead of processed American, and I also added Tabasco and Worcestershire for some spice. Definitely a keeper at our house.
Everyone in my family loved this when I served it for dinner last night! I have to please picky eaters ages 6 to 60 so that says alot! Made it again & added a can of black beans - awesome!
We absolutely loved this. I made it to recipe and added a small can chopped green chilis. Served with corn muffins.
This is a simple, easy, quick dinner and my kids loved it. The only thing I did differently was I added black beans and 2 cloves of garlic. I also added a packet of mild Chili seasoning because I felt it was a little bland. Instead of sliced cheese I used a fiesta blend cheese in a bag and sprinkled it liberally over the casserole. Thanks for the recipe it's a keeper.
This was very good. I made this a lot easier though. Bought diced tomatoes with green pepper already in them. Only needed to use 1 pan as well. Brown ground beef and drain. Add all ingredients, including uncooked rice. Simmer covered for 15-20 minutes. Put cheese slices on top and they melt just fine. Rice will also be cooked.
