Yummy rice, Donna! I left out water, tomato sauce and ketchup, added 2- 14.5 ounce cans of mexican style stewed tomatoes. Excellent main dish material with green salad and garlic bread. Thanks.

This is a VERY GOOD recipe!!! I changed a few things though. I used 2 1/2 cups of V-8 juice to 1 cup rice and 1/2# ground beef. I added 1 can of stewed tomatoes with the juice (which replaced...

I made this with ketchup as listed and again with only 1/4 cup ketchup. It's definitely better with less ketchup. We really enjoyed it.
