Very filling and tasty, but not a quick and easy meal. This makes a very large dish, so be prepared for leftovers. It took a little time for me to chop the onion and bell pepper, but I'm slow at chopping and dicing. I only used one onion because I'm not a big onion fan. I bought 1 1/2 lbs. ground beef, so I added a little more rice and water than what was called for. I used minute rice and it turned out fine. I also added a can of diced tomatoes with green chilies and about 1/4 cup salsa...would've added more salsa, but that was all I had. I sauteed 2 cloves minced garlic with the onion, pepper, and meat. I used a lot more seasoning than what was called for and it turned out delicious. I think that ground sausage would be good to use in place of the ground beef. I served it with cornbread. My brother commented that it would be a great tailgate food and my mom said that she liked it better than my jambalaya. If you use the tailgate idea, you could serve it with corn bread muffins.
