A brown rice crust gives this meat pie added nutrition. It's a fun and different way to serve chili.—Denise Kilback, Balgonie, Saskatchewan

    4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil

  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1/4 cup each finely chopped celery, onion and green and sweet red pepper

  • 1 cup canned diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1/2 cup canned kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder

Directions

  • In a bowl, combine the first four ingredients; mix well. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of a greased 9-in. pie plate; set aside.
  • For filling, cook beef, celery, onion, peppers and garlic over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add the tomatoes, beans and chili powder. Spoon into crust.

You can also make the crust for Chili Rice Pie with 2 cups cooked white rice. Don't care for kidney beans? Use black or pinto beans instead. For a more spicy chili, sir in some finely chopped jalapeno peppers.

    What a different twist with a rice shell - it was really good and my family loved it - cut back a bit to half a clove of garlic and it was delicious
