Spice Baked Rice

A close family friend shared this recipe with me years ago. It makes a filling main course or serve it as a side dish with a meaty entree.—Kim Kolb Dague, Huntsville, Alabama

  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) stewed tomatoes
  • 1-1/2 cups tomato juice

  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Directions

  • In a skillet, cook beef, green pepper and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add the next eight ingredients.

    I made a few adjustments. I used converted rice and Mexican-style stewed tomatoes. The tomato juice I used was Snap-e-Tom. I grind my own chile powder and used Arbol. When using pure chile powder instead of the generic "chili powder", be aware that the same amount of pure gives stronger heat and at the same time a very distinct flavor as compared with other chile varieties. Finally I used 1 1/2 cups cheese and next time would use 2 cups.
