I don't know the origin of this recipe, but it's been in my family for a long time. I can remember eating it often as a little girl.—Beverly Austin, Fulton, Missouri


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 bottle (32 ounces) tomato or vegetable juice
  • 1 cup uncooked long grain rice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • 1. In a skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; crumble meat; drain. Stir in the onion, green pepper, garlic and chili powder. Cook and stir until the vegetables are tender. Stir in remaining ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20-30 minutes or until the rice is tender and most of the liquid is absorbed.
