"My mom used to make this when I was a child. It was a meal that was budget friendly for a family of six. Plus, it is full of protein!"

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease.
  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. Bring water and rice to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until rice is tender and liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.
  5. Stir kidney beans, tomatoes, and rice into the beef mixture; pour into a large casserole dish and top with American cheese and olives.
  6. 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 t...

We discovered that we do not like the big chunks of whole tomato. I will use diced tomato next time. Also, it does not feed 6 if the people are adult men; it feeds more like 3.

Use cooked or minute rice because standard rice does not get tender, good flavor
