"It is not known where this recipe originated, but it has been used as a hot dish on outings and potlucks for at least 30 years. Rice and ground beef in tomato sauce, baked under a layer of shredded cheese. A great way to feed several with hamburger, and easy to keep on hand ingredients. Leftovers can be made into quick roll-ups by microwaving in a tortilla."

  1. Combine rice and water in a saucepan, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
  2. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, reserving 2 tablespoons of drippings, crumble and set aside. Add ground beef, green pepper, and onion to the skillet; cook over medium-high heat until the beef is evenly browned. Drain excess grease, and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  4. Place beef and cooked rice into a 9x13 inch baking dish. Stir in the tomatoes, bacon and reserved drippings, mixing until everything is well blended. Spread the shredded cheese over the top.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until cheese is bubbly, and the center is heated through.

I prepared it as written, and added some ClubHouse TexMex seasoning, but we still found it bland. It needs something else. It was okay, but not very exciting. I will have to tweak it if I mak...

This recipe would be something that my grandma from the Ozarks would make. It was hearty, flavorful and easy to make. Bacon and its grease isn't an ingredient that I cook with often, while watch...

It didn't tell me whether or not to drain the tomatoes, so I did, and it turned out pretty dry. The reheats are even drier! Just needs a little tweaking I guess.

Yummy, yummy, yummy. This was terrific. If you really like bacon, though, and don't want to add the bacon fat drippings, I'd add more pieces of bacon (crumbled) instead. I also added a bit of...

With a few small changes this recipe was reminescent of hash. I used 2 cups of brown rice (left over from previous night). Omitted the bell pepper and can of diced tomatoes. Instead I used an...

good, easy, but not anything to go super crazy about. Take some leftovers and scramble an egg and combine in a flour tortilla. Would make it again

Love this recipe! the first time I made it I forgot to add bacon but it still turned out great! the second time I added the bacon and even better!! whole family loves it!

This made a huge portion. I reduce the meat to 1 pound of ground turkey. I served it with seasoned salt. Excellent!
